We study strings between static quarks in QCD with nf adjoint fermions, including N = 1 supersymmetric Yang-Mills (SYM), in the calculable regime on R-3 x S-L(1), which shares many features with the XY-spin model. We find that they have many qualitatively new features not previously known. The difference from other realizations of Abelian confinement is due to the composite nature of magnetic bions, whose Dirac quantum with fundamental quarks is two, and to the unbroken part of the Weyl group…
