YoYo String?

Hi everyone, I’ve been making my own string, but I need some clearing up to do. I wrap the string around my drill 5 times. It’s kinda hard to explain, if you need further explanation ask me.

I was watching MikeMonty’s “Learn to throw” episode 4, and he said type 6, which he said was three layers of string, seemed to be best for 1A.

I wanted to ask, is three layers of string the same as wrapping around the drill 3 times?

Another question, I use polyester to make my strings. I don’t get immediate string burn when using it, but It dries my skin and make tons of cuts. Is there any way to make different string that doesn’t do this?

Thanks for the help :slight_smile:
