I was wondering if you get glow in the dark string for performances?

I think a lot of classic strings most of us use can glow in the dark if under a UV black light. At least Henry's Yellow one does for sure and it looks nice :-)

Don't know any. But maybe there is still a way: "paint" your string with a glow in the dark ink. Though I don't know if this would not affect the quality of the string. Depends also on what kind of tricks you want to perform with. Must be ok if you just do so big suns and very visual tricks (avoiding wraps to the maximum).

Diabolo may be very technical - but don't overlook the artistic side ;-)

Henrys string does glow under UV light when it's new. Once the dirt gets onto it though, it's all over.

I remember Funty cracked a glow stick open and got the stuff on the string, it worked quite well and didn't effect quality.

Funty has a perpendicular way of thinking, great idea. How long it lasted?

http://www.glow.co.uk/glow-in-the-dark-spray-paint.html  expensive but looks good :)

Looks like it would also be good for a white diabolo or carbon sticks :)

Does it still work if it's on something colorful?

If you try it I'd be interested to see the results.
