my string keeps ripping.
« on: June 06, 2010, 08:31:57 pm »
Hey, im newish to diaboloing and I've been using henry's neon orange and classic energy handsticks. About once a day ( I practice 2-3 hours a day) my string will rip, right at the point where it goes into the sticks, mostly while doing tricks with a lot of g-force (whip catch, umbrella, horizontal whips). I think the sharp metal edges of the caps are cutting the string. Is there any way to prevent this?

Hi, it's probably because the ends of your stick are rough from hitting the pavement. You need to sand the ends of you sticks. Some threads to help:

Thank you! I'll try sanding the ends and putting some tape on the string.
