Sitting at the Illinois state YoYo contest right now, given over 150 strings away.

Tons if positive reviews. Really makes me smile.

Oh, and people have been testing out the two new strings we've been working on - gold and white gold. Excellent reviews again.

They'll be dropping Monday.

Thanks for the string!  Put it on my new Shaquler Star I won at Illinois States!  Cool promotional idea, free string was sweet!

I tried the powercord t and I loved it. It lasted me over a day until I got a knot. Sad I'll get some for Christmas for sure!

They evolved into the diamond series.

Haven't had a lot of time to test them out, but rockin' a thin Diamond Series string in my Wrath right now. Feels very nice. I like 'em!

Would a string that lasted an extremely long time (months of solid play), but that had some arcing issues, be something that you guys would have an interest in?

What do you mean by arching?

I probably wouldn't be interested. I mean unless it consistently played like your Diamond series.

Arcing is what happens to durable threads instead of fraying, like you would expect a polyester thread to do.



Near the middle of the picture. Its when a thread pops out a little bit - it doesn't really effect play, but it is ascetically unpleasing.

Ahh. Nah I probably wouldn't mind that.

I'm definitely going to put in some time and make a proper review of your strings, once I get some time. In other words, when this semester ends, lol. I'm also going to work on a logo, if you're still looking for one.

You're certainly free to make one and I'll definitely check it out, but I do have a logo that I'm quite happy with right now.

I look forward to the review very much Smiley
