This is the official Signature String of competitive yoyo player, Keiran Cooper, who also happens to be sponsored by the amazing, SF Yoyos, who we LOVE. Keiran is currently the NER Champ and 4th in the Nation, but he's definitely #1 to us!
First and foremost, it is important to note that "Rhapsody" isn't merely a signature color, it's an entirely different composition of string, made specifically to meet the demands of rigorous practice and competition.
Rhapsody originated with teammate, Paul Harness, who was looking for something slightly thinner and with a tighter torsion than our regular thickness string - making them excellent for competition. With the success and awesomeness of Paul's version of Rhapsody, we asked Paul if ZipLine should be interested in any other competitive yoyo'ers for our team. Keiran immediately came to mind, and within no time we slapped hands on a sponsorship!
Keiran was able to try out the entire lineup of our strings, but kept coming back to Rhapsody as his absolute favorite. He mentioned that it was similar to what he was currently using for competition, but held its tension better during extended pay.
I asked Keiran, "if there was anything that you'd change about this string to fit you better, what would it be?" He answered with "maybe it could be a little thicker?"
We added 2 extra thread stands and tweaked the torsion to best fit the SF Yoyos "Cadence" and Keiran's tension preference. This is what you get with Rhapsody kc24!
