YYSL Venom vs. MarkMont Dragon String


Which is better? Any other recommendations? Want to try out one of the two, how are they like?


Some people love Dragon, some people hate it. It seems to be a very hit or miss string with people. The whips and slacks with this string are insane, unfortunately it holds tension worse than just about anything else I’ve used.

YYSL Venom is my personal favorite string and it is just very good all around.


They are not the same at all. Venom plays more similarly to standard poly, whereas Dragons are that plasticky, dense, embroidery-thread-feeling-stuff.

Dragons last a lifetime, I’ll give them that. But I much prefer Venom despite shorter lifespan.


I have both also, and I much prefer Venom to Dragons. Dragons do feel like they give an extra boost of speed or something, and feel slicker on the fingers, whereas Venom seem to just burn your fingers when your any sort of high friction tricks. And the tension is much better on the Venom, not the best, but still good.
