Kitty String - Custom player edition strings!
Kitty string is one of the most well known string brands and is chosen by some of the top competitors in the world. Now they're working with professional yoyo players to create these custom signature series strings!
Owen Ekblad: Owen's signature string is a new string that realizes an unprecedented feel with a polyester-type string to match his innovative style. To pair both his 1A and 5A style with one type of string, Kitty String has adopted a string thickness between the normal and the fat. It has an outstanding balance and control that improves the technical execution of tricks. String length: 120-125 cm. 100% polyester.
Polo Garbkamol: Polo's string specializes in the balance required for tension tricks and technical lacerations that Polo is known for. The string tension is set slightly stiffer than usual to achieve faster speed and delicate control when the yo-yo is in the air. The thickness remains almost the same as XL size. String length: 120-125 cm. 100% polyester.
Shinji Saito: 2A legend Shinji Saito's new signature series builds on the earlier cream-colored Kitty String they have been making for Shinji for a long time. His new signature series adopts a length of 100-110 cm for Shinji's standard size to quickly pull and go with less hassle of string preparation. It handles tension extremely well and has the perfect balance of performance and longevity. 100% Polyester.
Daiki Tanaka: Daiki is known for his dynamic trick construction and his mesmerizing style. His favorite type of Kitty String is XL and he wanted to base this signature string with the same thickness and bouncy feel. We brushed up the XL’s unique weight that provides stability and keeps the loops open which makes slacks even easier. It combines two mixed colors, lime green and black, to suit Daiki’s preference, making the string easy to see in any situation on the street or against any background. String length: 120-125cm. 100% Polyester.
Kento Muraoka: Japan’s innovative trick machine, Kento, designed this unique blend with a focus on tech combos. The baby pink color is in reference to his original favorite he had been using since before the rebranding. We made several prototypes to reproduce the unique softness of the pink color and maintain the firm form to keep the tension stable while playing. Kento himself chose this particular pink color to make it more visible not only for everyday use but also for competition. String length: 120-125cm. 100% Polyester.
Thawhir Iqbal: Thawhir Iqbal is a multiple title holder in Singapore and Asia Pacific 3A Champion. His request was to create a string that suits both 3A and 1A that doesn’t change the feel even with a large variance in string length. We designed his string to maximize the versatile playstyle, including speed, technical combos, and slack tricks, by providing easy sliding and stable binds, which are essential in string tricks. We kept the string length is 120-125 cm, the same as the standard version, to accommodate 1A as well as 3A. 100% Polyester.
