After about 2 months of experimenting, I finally have a string making process that produces a quality string.  I tweaked thread brands, twisting tension, number of twists... all the variables I could think of!  The result is a soft, firm, bouncy string that whips and slacks well!  Cheesy

I had trouble with the strings holding tension well, but being too rough.  Then soft, but too hard to whip and would snag on binds.  It was a frustrating process.  At first I wasn't trying different threads much because I thought they would pretty much be the same... I could not have been more wrong!  Once I found the right thread, the results of changes in the process were more meaningful and everything worked itself out.



So, I just got my shipment of 500+ strings in the mail in the pic below!  Grin  Soon I'll be doing some color matching with my throws and see how that goes.  I think a string that matches your colorway would be pretty slick!

Not currently.  I may decide to sell some at some point, but I really can't see a reason to.  There are a lot of string makers already and I don't think there's any money in it considering the time it takes to make them in quantity.  I would be more likely to trade for some, but they're mostly just my way of saving money on my own strings.

I thought about doing custom color combinations, but I'd have to buy a ton of different colors.  I just don't see it being worth the hassle.

Would you be willing to give out some sample packs? I'd really like to test out this string you perfected. Smiley
