Probably not. I asked for some and never got any, as did other people. I don't think he posts on the forum anymore.

I can't realy understand why anyone would want black string. It'd be so hard to see

If it bothers you that much could colour your string in with a sharpie.
Donald Grant mentioned it somewhere.. Go read. Probably in this thread.  :-\

Wouldn't that make the string thick, gripy and hard to play with?

Found the post from Donald

Dying string should work, but we found a quicker and easier version when we were shooting the new DVD last summer.

The studio background was totally white, so there was a fear that even fluo yellow string wouldn't show up too well on film.

The problem was solved by the simple formula of white string + permanent marker pen + Alan Blim.  Half an hour of frantic colouring in by Alan and we had enough suitably dark string for everyone.  @Miesta The string feels a little stiff at first but you soon get used to it and it also gets softer with a bit of use.

PS Just got the first copies of the DVD last week, and yes -phew- the string is visible!

i just made some last night and i have to say that 2 (glowing) shuffle is amazing with black sticks and string. once its going, its actually easy to to tricks with without being able to see the string. what i'd be interested in is actually glowing string, but i can dream on

Henrys yellow is flourescent.  If you haven't seen it in the dark under UV light, you should!

If you want glowing string without UV - crack a light stick on them. It'll probably screw up the string and/or axle but hey..

How cool would slack combos look like with glow string, but diabolo and sticks not visible.

oh i have some fluorescent yellow string and i practice in front of a small black light in my room so it looks cool, but it'd be cooler if the string was actually glowing... the glow stick idea might work haha

Ok, me and my dad were talking (GASP we don't have a very good relationship) and we figured out a way to have illuminated string! Since fiber optic cable is relatively flexible why not core some florescent string with it but rough up the edges so that the light shines through the scratches on to the string, and in the tips of your light sticks have two UV LEDs and it should travel through the fiber optic cable and activated the string, but it would probably be only good for like a performance or two...
