Looking for ultra premium string? This Yoyo King string is a 50/50 polyester and cotton blend made to exacting specifications and designed specifically for high performance yoyoing. So that it wouldn't be confused with other strings, Yoyo King added a strand of blue into the rest of the black threads, giving it an unmistakably different look.
This is a Type 6 cotton / poly string. Six refers to the number of strands and thickness. A Type 8, for example, is going to have more strands and be thicker. Type 6 is a great choice for both responsive and non-responsive yoyos. The mix of cotton and polyester makes the string a little bit slipperier than all cotton string, which helps you on string tricks. It also gives the string more strength, so it tends to last a little bit longer than string made from only cotton. But like every yoyo string, it will wear out!
So change your strings often for the best performance. If they start to appear dirty or frayed, better switch quickly before you break a string and send your yoyo flying. If you are buying a yoyo, don't forget to buy a yo-yo trick book to carry with you, a yoyo trick DVD for at home, and extra yoyo strings. Learning new tricks makes yoyoing much more fun, and you'll need extra strings, because they wear out with regular use.
