    (I hope I'm not putting you into trouble? But I like this kind of Badminton riddle)
    not planning to as i don't have any Gosen strings in any form or labelling...

    ...and then I look at the Adidas string composition, which appears almost.... disorderly by comparison!
    i think there are hundreds of strands of filament in the core, but not thousands. it certainly look denser than it is depicted in the diagram above.

    as for Adidas. i think it has to do with the way i cut the string and also how tightly the core filaments are bounded together

    the details are pretty intriguing.

    the inner coating layer consists of interleaving red and white bundles of filaments.

    There are many types of badminton people:

    Casual : "There are different kinds of strings?"
    Enthusiast: " I wonder what strings are made of?"
    Die-hard: "What does string look like in a super close-up photo?"
    Needs to get their priorities straight: "I NEED a picture of every make of string in high def. Right now!"
    ...

    This is an interesting thread and kwun has done a great job. But IMHO it's becoming like 'string porn' - too much, too raw, too close.
