I have waited to try some zipline or markmount strings as I hear all good things about them.the only proplem I have is I live in the uk and the post is too high it puts me off
Well now that you got that off your chest…
I do a bit lol
Well I think the solution is pretty simple really.
All you really need to do is move here to the US.
I feel bad for you
Thanks. I think I will just have to order some
i live in asia so i have to factor in international shipping into most - if not all - of my online orders.
after a while, the price of postage doesn’t bother you anymore cuz you’d be numbed by the pain
I feel your pain as I also live on these fair isles, I took the plunge and ordered some Ziplines though, about half the postage cost of Markmont strings!
Do some string trades with folks here on the forums! For the cost of a stamp and an envelope you could easily sample a few strings, if you have other strings to trade.
There’s even a topic for string trading here if you search
How do ziplines compare to kitty fat strings
We should have markmont formulas coming soon!
Ooh nice make sure he sells a sampler pack too! Those are DA BEST
That’s great news! More people need the opportunity to try these.
I just tried ziplines for the first time just now—as in literally 20 mins ago. I like the nylon ones—executive class I think these ones were called—they are so smooth on the hands, so slick in general, yet they bind really snappy and don’t snag easily. Unlike a lot of nylons, these aren’t overly bouncy or weird feeling in any way. If they last significantly longer than poly—they’re a bit expensive, I’m switching.
Their poly strings are good too, also much better than Kitty, but the difference isn’t quite as extreme. They’re a tad hard on my hands, but still pretty slick otherwise. Snags a bit easier than the nylon, but not bad, and binds great. My initial impressions are extremely positive.
