Vivo's Mirage String : Cloud 9 Review!


#1

Vivo’s Cloud 9 Review!

Last time, I reviewed the Hardcore Mirage String which is 80% Polyester and 20% Cotton. But now, I am going to review Cloud 9 Mirage String, which is 80% Cotton, and 20% Polyester. The complete opposite.

Out of the envelope

So one day, I was going to play basketball outside, but then I saw my garage, which reminded me of mail, which reminded me of the strings that Nikita sent me! So I opened the garage, and I was really happy to see the envelope. So I went upstairs, opened the envelope, and I saw a cartoon. Haha, nice Nikita! Meh, the cartoon was rather cheesy and corny, but some of you guys might think it’s funny. Then, I saw the strings with a post-it note on it saying “Mirage String” that is handwritten by Nikita himself. Hmm… it wasn’t really that colorful and stuff but it reminded me of peach. It was white with a litttle strand of orange. I took the strings and it has that silky smooth feeling… Aaaahhhh… I wasn’t even expecting that it would be smooth because it’s 80% cotton, but I don’t know how this happened. I don’t even need gloves or anything, this string will never burn your fingers.  :smiley: All right, no more stuff in the envelope? Okay, let’s play this baby. Peach baby.

Play.  :o

It plays unbelievably crasy. LOL. It’s crasy good. It plays like the Hardcore Mirage String. These strings are very similar to them so if you haven’t seen my review on the Hardcore Mirage String, you might wanna take a look at it. It’s great for everything and this string plays crasy good at everything. You name it, slacks, suicides, whips, blah, blah, blah. But I don’t really do many suicides on this one because all the walls in my house is white, so yeah. But Holy Cow, this string is the duck’s nuts. (I’m sorry Zack, just needed to use it.) This string is a dead tie to the Hardcore.  :o But one thing I hate about this string is it’s string tension, it’s very frustrating. Like after 5 throws the tension just kicks you out of nowhere. But I mean, overall it’s great string. I think the reason why it’s so good at whips and slacks is because the string is thin and it’s light.

Here are some pictures!

There is a knot at the end of the string so you can make your slipknot the way you want it to be.

The Cartoon.  ;D

Pros and Cons:

Pros:

  • Crasy good playability.
  • Long Lasting

Cons:

  • Frustrating String Tension

Overall, this is great string, but I would prefer the Hardcore Mirage String. But I mean, give it a try at least, you guys might have different experiences with it. Because all I can say is, this string is silky smoooth.

That was my review, I hope you liked it. PM Mirage to buy these strings:
