This is the official Signature String of competitive yoyo player, Paul Harness, otherwise known as @yoyoist on Instagram. He happens to also be sponsored by the amazing, SF Yoyos, who we love. Paul is currently our Pacific NW regional champ, and 4x Idaho State champ.
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.
Paul’s strings have 2 less threads and are wound more tightly than our regular thickness string, which makes them excellent for competition. Paul states, "I prefer a little thinner string with tighter tension, because the normal thickness string (I was using before) snagged a bunch during my freestyles. With Rhapsody, I'm able to hit a cleaner freestyle, since the material causes less friction and promotes longer spin times; especially with the current version (with white core thread,) because for some reason, it gives me more control over where the slack goes. The overall combination just makes for a string that's superior to any other string I've used competitively."
When Paul and I first met up, we had the opportunity to test a variety of strings together; his strings vs. some of ZipLine's best string formulations, and we both came to the consensus that we could take things a step further by coming up with something that could hold up through long practice sessions, and would also be perfect for his style of competitive play. We actually spent a couple of months going back and forth on prototyping before Paul proudly used them to compete at PNWR, and then again at Idaho States, where he became the 4x state champ! We super happy to have Paul on team ZipLine, and we're excited to see where we go from here!
