String String, I like to make STRING!!!
« on: April 14, 2006, 11:56:54 AM »

Well recently, with much advice from JJY, I finally got off my butt and tried to make my own yoyo string.
I have seen many video tutorials and read countless web pages about the process.

I am not talking about plain old white string either. I make 2 and even 3 colour combo strings.
Neon colours, pastels, solids, etc. I play with it all.
Now, I JUST CAN'T STOP!!

There is something instantly gratifying about making a new colour combo that turns out better than you had hoped.
Or even trying a mix that looks horrid and learning from your mistake.

Well, now to the point of this thread.
Here are some pictures of some string combos I recently made.


Zero Kool purchased my GE2 and I could not just let it leave alone. Poor yoyo needed some custom colours.
This string looks even better in person, I tried many pics but could not get the colours to show true enough.


This yo and string is heading out to Skapunk7. Lucky boy.

I have more info about my current obsession on my website.

Thanks for looking, comments are welcome.

Actually...I already do make an Eetsit type string.
It is a nice rich brown with 2 strands of yellow/gold (to add the bronze-ish affect), then white...3 colours overall.
I also make a standard white and brown combo.

I have a huge pile of string combos I have made for fun.



This is MOST of my colours I use.
Missing from the picture is my neons (green, pink, orange and yellow), my eetsit brown, and several big white spools.

Did you build your own rig for making the string? Saw a pic of one where a guy had taken what looked like a whole line of lego gears in a row and a drill to do 6 or so stings at once.

my string is gonna be hot.

I just finished this order for FightDeathorDie. My friend Laurie saw it and said, "That looks just like Doube Bubble bubble gum". Hence I present to you...The DOUBLE BUBBLE.
You really need to see this string in the sunlight, it shines like a hot pink diamond.


It is a pastel pink mixed with hot pink neon. Gorgeous!!!

Enjoy FDOD, it hits the mail on Tuesday.

WOW! I don't even know if I'm going to play it.
I might just put them in a frame and hang it up.
