Around here, we love nylon strings. The slickness of nylon has some major advantages in how it interacts with the yoyo. That said, it can, for some people, be a little too slippery at the finger loop. We tend to agree, on occasion, and because we promote nylon strings, we also want to promote a solution.
We not only think that nylon strings (or any string for that matter) could sometimes use a bit more grip on the loop, we decided to do something about it. The first thing we did was develop a unique, and yoyo string specific, formula for a material that can be applied to the string that gives it an incredible amount of grip. Then, we wanted a way to apply it that was intuitive, durable and classy, so we developed that too!
The Tin Of Grip gives our homemade rosin a durable and temp resistant container that will allow you to bring it with you wherever you go! It's easy to use, and incredibly effective! Just add a little bit to your finger loop and it wont slip even a millimeter.
Our special FRICTION formula rosin is designed to stay on the string and not get on your hands or rub off on your finger. It just plain works. While it may not be a necessity, it's something that is just really nice to have for that piece of mind during play.

Tin Of Grip is easily able to withstand normal temperatures of daily life, like pockets, backpacks, household temps, etc. That said, if you wouldn't leave your chapstick "there", please don't leave your Tin Of Grip "there" either. ie...the dryer, on the dash of a hot car, etc..

If you happen to forget it in some place warm, no worries. It won't leak out. Just let it cool back down before you try to use it, and it will be as good as new!
