I'm looking to order a pair of gi pants made by Ouano. An important factor for me is if they have a rope string or a flat tapered string. The flat strings always get stuck on me when they are wet so I'm only going to order rope string from now on. I want to order a pair from NHBgear.com today so they are here by a tourny I have next weekend...they say they have the rope string, but I read on here a couple weeks ago about someone buying a whole Ouano gi and the pants had the flat string. Has anybody ordered a pair recently and can confirm which they have? I tried to contact NHBgear's staff but haven't heard anything back yet. Thanks.
