How to determine your string size:

To select the size of string you need, wrap your current unfrayed string around anything round (like a pencil) 10 times and measure the width of those 10 strands. Then match with the pictures below.

0.9MM String 1.2MM String 1.4MM String 1.6MM String
3/8" approximate width when wrapped 10 times
1/2" approximate width when wrapped 10 times
9/16" approximate width when wrapped 10 times
5/8" approximate width when wrapped 10 times
1.8MM String 2.0MM String 2.2MM String 2.4MM String
11/16" approximate width when wrapped 10 times
3/4" approximate width when wrapped 10 times
7/8" approximate width when wrapped 10 times
15/16" approximate width when wrapped 10 times
2.6MM String 2.7MM String 2.9MM String 3.2MM String
1 1/16" approximate width when wrapped 10 times
1 1/16" approximate width when wrapped 10 times
1 1/8" approximate width when wrapped 10 times
1 1/4" approximate width when wrapped 10 times
3.6MM String 4.0MM String
1 1/2" approximate width when wrapped 10 times
