In not sure about what you're asking but if you want more color in an endless loop string try calling the guy who makes them for Excalibur. His name is Danny Miller 740 483 2312

Danny will also make colored Flemish strings. He has red, pink ,blue, yellow, orange, green, gray, and black that I know of. Good strings and very reasonable.

You might change your mind if you come to Boofest :wave: and see Gaston, Mike and Steve dancing around in their special clothing :think: . Then there's someone who comes from England and wears a dress and what's underneath is in question. Then there's the local store at Boofest that had a flasher. Then there's.... I guess I should follow the Boofest rules, what happens at Boofest is supposed to stay at Boofest :shh: , so I shall not continue :wtf: I love these new emoticons! :thumbup:

I will start by saying I did not know much about the different strings. I just got a Boo string and I love it. I was able to get different color patterns that I wanted. When I put the string on I had a gain in velocity and a reduction in noise. Compared to the factory string this one Appears to have stronger fibers and be more durable and a little thicker overall. Are used my axiom for several years with the original factory string and never had a problem but it is a boring string because it doesn’t do anything for the appearance and the velocity is less than you would expect from the specifications. I think you should try any good string Then make it look the way you would enjoy to see it.
