My string is twining!
« on: August 21, 2008, 03:49:56 PM »
Hello, my string is "twining" around my diabolo sometimes when I've warped it. Is this because of a old/bad string? This is very annoying when I try to do the chinese whip for example.

With what?

Also you should get some MB or Henrys string, because to me that string doesn't look like either of those.

The trouble with henrys string: It is too slippery at first so i soap it. This makes it too rough and so you get the problem of twining.
I have the perfect answer for you... get sundai flys! =P

If you keep rubbing it with soup that will probably make it grippy. Do you use a specific flavour?
