    Default Hyperhydrosis

    I was wondering if Hyperhydrosis with the hands will affect the string performance with the feeling and hitting and etc. Hyperhydrosis is when parts of your body will sweat at random times or very sensitive to moisture, so we have no control of our sweating.

    For me I have hyperhydrosis on the palms of my hands so when I string most of the times my hands will be sweating. I was wondering if the moisture and sweat will affect the stringing outcome.

    interesting. i guess it depends on the amount.

    strings coating are pretty insulated but still porous to some extent.

    maybe have a fan blowing to aid evaporation?

    i'd think the resultant slippery contact is more of an issue.

    The sweat might work as a lubricant so there is less friction while weaving the cross strings

    i can soak a grip up in 10 secs. Not sure if that will give you a reference of how much i sweat. I tried stringing without my sweaty hands and it SEEMS like it feels and sounds better... might just be a mind trick
