Gear / Re: How long does your string last?
« on: September 28, 2010, 08:20:04 PM »
Hey, I'm kind of new to the diabolo (2 months I think), But I'm having a real problem with the string in general.

It only really happened on chinese whip thrusts, when the diabolo decides to just wrap up and climb the string. Even when I know the string is an 'open' wrap (opposed to the string rubbing against itself in a wrap) it still happened. I just put this down to fuzzy string; from new it lasted 2 weeks.

So I changed  the string. But now I don't have enough friction for a 2d wrap start; I wrap the second one, give it a slight spin, reach for the handstick, and it's already collided with the first.

My set up includes: Henrys carbon handsticks, Henrys green string, and 2 Henrys Circus'.

Is there something wrong with what I'm using? Am I meant to be changing my string every 2/3 weeks?
Any help or advice would be brilliant. Thanks.
