Which custom string?


#1

So I’ve been toying with the idea of buying some strings from one or two of the custom string makers here on the forums, just not sure which ones I should try.

My favorite strings right now are probably kitty XL, so looking for something similar.

You should aim for something better than kitty if you’re getting boutique strings

Well, I got them as extras in a purchase on the BST. They are great though. I’ve also tried kitty fats that I got in a trade and like then pretty well also. I’ve got 2 Toxic Drakens and about 3 Toxic Dragons, but haven’t tried them out yet (from what I read, the Draken is like a holy grail of strings).

I’m still pretty new to the world of yoyoing after a 15 year absence. What types of string would you revoke with comparable size and feel to a kitty XL or fat? Mostly XL though.

Try out some YoYo String Lab Ammo.  It’s a really nice fatter string.

I was hoping to try out some of the people from the custom string makers board. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Try the Grand Rapids strings. I doubt you will be disappointed. I would highly recommend them if you like thicker strings, and I’ve played a lot of string.

Do you want to try homemade strings?
If so, YYSL are homemade, they’re just a “bigger” homemade company
