    I've been feeling a bit nostalgic as of late. Does anyone know if there is a company that still produces rainbow strings? You'd think me being in the business would have this answer, but I do not.

    Klipper does, and they're only 2$ a set, but shipping is so high!

    Also, I wish they'd make a poly, only nylon is available.

    Luxilon Rainbow Strings anyone? ;)

    The Klipper rainbow is the only one I know of.

    Really only options are Velociti, which is a fine playing synthetic similiar to Prince Original Synthetic Gut but better.

    ...or, the Klipper 15L stuff by the reel. Personally, I've never been a fan of stringing from packs, I don't like the package waste and most of all the waste on the wallet.

    The Klipper stuff is cool that they have so many colored decent quality synthetic guts in reel form, but the problem is that they only offer them in a fatty guage that people wouldn't want to be caught dead with these days. If only they sold them in 16g, they'd probably sell three times as many. Frankly, I don't understand why they refuse to do this.

    Colored BUT playable cross strings for poly hybrids available at a reasonable price would be a boon to the stringer's-for-money-alliance repertoire imo.

    I use Toalson Asterisk Metal Rainbow, had excellent feedback from it. Can't find it on a reel over here only by the pack, I was tempted to get some on a reel by Klipper but they wouldn't give me a postage quote (in the UK).

    Damn spell checkers do not know how to spell. It's VELOCITI.

    EDIT: Add THAT to your funk'n waginal! Not to be confused w/Funk and Wagnall.

    PolyFibre Australia have a rainbow reel. Cheap as cheap too. They also have a pink and purple option too
