Old string is never a good thing. you should have bought new strong a long time ago, especially if you do performances. As always, henry's yellow or Mr. B's yellow

Yellow string is overrated in my opinion. I prefer that black-white string, Henry's I think. It's much stronger...?

Yellow string in particular may be overrated, but any of the fluorescent coloured strings by many companies are very different from the white strings, and in general well liked for good reason.

I wouldn't say one is stronger than the other, just that fluorescent has a much tighter weave.

Everyone's style is different though, and some people like thicker white string and just change it frequently.

I know, in my experience, I've had my yellow string go as long as where the yellow part has torn, and it was still hanging by the white inner thread.  The Henry's white, on the other hand, just kinda snaps.  Everyone's got different taste, though.

always go for henry's, it is very reliable. try and find a vibrant color like red, orange, or yellow, when i got the henry's white it lasted a fair amount of time less than my orange
can't believe its not butter
