    Default i need a new string mover

    anyone got recommendation for a good string mover? i gave away my old one when i sold the ASE. now i am looking for another one. the options seems to be limited.

    either the Eagnas one, or the MBS one which i think is from AEF?

    are there any other ones in the market?

    Try to get one with a U/V-shaped hook (like both of the above), rather than a "question mark" shaped one; the latter needs more wrist work.

    (I noticed you using your awl in your video - I used to do that as well.)

    You can find a similar tool at your local hardware store (or even wal mart).

    I
    t however does not have the perpendicular handle, although there's probably a way to fix that :P

    the Eagnas one then.



    it also seems a bit more pointy than the other one.

    the MBS one looks exactly like the one i got from the ASE:



    i am ok with it, the Eagnas one just look slightly better.

    i wonder if there is an existing tool suitable for moving the string blocking a non-shared hole...

    Dental floss :P

    I sometimes use my awl to lift the blocking string, but the technique is not so neat and it is easy to damage the string if you're not careful.

    I agree, Eagnas' string mover works well and seems more practical than MBS's. However the tip breaks really easily so you might have to buy another one every couple months/years.

    Default Lift Main String at Non-shared Grommets

    Dental floss actually work very well. Alternatively, use a short piece of useless ZM62.

    Yeah, I don't remember how though, but it wasn't anything exceptional. Maybe I dropped it, and it weakened it or something but I didn't throw it on a wall or anything crazy :P

    i will have to try dental floss. for some of the racket, it is impossible to fit anything through, even zm62 is too thick.
