Which Zipline to try?

Right now I prefer the weight, feel and thickness of Kitty XL. What does Zipline make that might be comparable?

Prob Alpha Line or Slushy since both are 100% poly. Although it seems like you basically want Kitty XL. So I can’t help but wonder… Why bother? Not just being a Richard. Seriously wondering.

No prob. Felt like supporting a really nice family who does a lot for the community and getting some stickers/knot pickers as well.


Right on. I get that. Alpha Line is worth a try for sure. Was impressed after being skeptical. Slushy is a solid all-round poly, their “flagship” blend if I recall.


If you’re up to try a little different blend of material, but similar thickness, I can’t recommend Skyline III enough.

That is an absolute favorite of mine, I get a month of solid play out of a single string, and then wash it for another go. They’re “bouncy” at first, so good once broken in too.

EP 2020 is prime for poly, smoothie blends too.

This is way easier than the question of which yoyo should I buy because strings are so much cheaper. I just tried Zipline for the first time about a month ago. I bought Slushy, Smoothie, Business Class, Performance, and Signature Plus. My favorite is probably the Signature Plus, but I say buy a lot of different types find a favorite and then get all the colors you want.

If you prefer thicker string then go with Performance Thick, Signature Plus, , Business Class, or Smoothie. Some of those won’t be as thick, but still on the thick side. Slushy aren’t thick and the Alpha isn’t either.

The alpha line is really good. The ep2020 were also very good but honestly liking the alpha line a bit more.
