                           Taibolo string review

ok, i didnt want to start a new thread so i am going to post this here.(i originally posted this in the taibolo diabolo thread) along with my taibolos i got a 25 m roll of taibolo string and when i tried it out...oooh lah lah. it differs from henrys yellow in a lot of ways. first of all, its not yellow. i like white string better than colored so that is a plus. and second of all it doesnt feel like fishing line when you get it first, it actually has grip. now when i first noticed this... i thought it was bad because it wouldnt last long but after about 4 hours straight daboloage. it has actually gotten better, not worse. now i could be wrong in the long run but i really LOVE this string. even more then henry's so i thought i could clue some of you guys in

thanks, mike

EDIT: ok. after using it for a while i only like this string for performances. it wraps up fairly easy after about a week of use. i got the new henrys and i like it.
can't believe its not butter

mine is still going really strong after a long straight amount of diaboloing. idk if it could be to the sitting overnight that makes it... , i guess stale. but the reason why i love this stuff so much is because of the condition it is new in. it has kept the awesome grip for about 5 hours and is still strong.

i would also like to add that it is fairly good for slack too

edit: after comparing thickness to henrys it looked pretty much the same

(totally irrelevant) I just woke up and apparently dream eric had some taibolo string and he agrees with hath and ben. it was thick and started to fray quickly. oh well I don't actually know; probably brought on by hath and ben.'s reviews.

Taibolo string in the same thickness as Henry's - its Sundia string that is thicker.

I also found that it got grippy very quickly, which in some ways was a good way, as Mike says when you first get it, it has grip, but I found myself changing my string thrice as much due to the fact it gets so grippy and has a tendency to wrap up, whereas you can use henry's string well past the time where you can hardly tell what colour it is...

still its all down to preference.

Thanks man,

like 2 weeks ago i got the Sundia Thin String (it isn't thin at all). in the beginning it had a little to much grip, me i could handle it, after a day it get's grippier and grippier, until after 3 days it sucks.     so i needed better string, this morning i bought Taibolo, i hope it is has less grip than sundia, but a little more grip than henry's.

the taibolo string is pretty slippery at first but then gets grippy after about 2 weeks worth of use. (4 days if your going to be doing it all day)
if your good at controlling the grippy-ness, or just use it a lot it gets pretty useful
