It looks like synthetic string.  Try cotton.

Also, try wrapping toward the end of the tip a couple of rounds, then back up the top.

In general, thicker and tighter cord will make the wrap more stable.

What is the key? The point where the rope ends winding... The number of turns of the rope around the top???
The number of turns doesn't matter. What matters is the height where the winding ends. Thicker = shorter, thinner = longer string

Great to know!!!!

Regarding the string..is any kind os string is recomended?? A picture would help very much (If is just a regular spintop string but thicker I have some)

I cannot appreciate the kind os rope in this picture...

About the winding with the current string I must say that my finger is hurting and it is really hard, a tutorial or some tips would be very much appreciated!!!

Thansk,

It's on cecil channel. I remember watching it but he changed the top completely... I don't really have the time to dig it down but you probably can find it easily!

I would try rope 1/8 polypro camo cord. I've had fun with this cord. I have done the tricks and set a couple of World records. HITTING A TARGET AT 25 FEET. THROWING A SPINNER AT 32 FEET. I buy it on ebay. I cut the length then wash it in warm water mixed with PALMOLIVE ORIGINAL dish soap.

Is the video above the one you mentioned??

About the string do you mean paracord in camo colour, right?

Damn!!! I just bought a roll of cotton twisted string this morning!!





And last... Could you tell us more about the records???

Depending how big it is. you should retwist it with a drill... the original direction isn't that important... Search for chris neff video on how to turn string ( or dylan's one )...
I have plan to make one at some point...

We will see...
