Hi, I can do most of the basic 4A tricks like 1-handed bind, overwhip, underwhip, barrel rolls, etc., but I keep running into this seemingly random problem where I start the forward toss and the string just snags inside the yoyo. Then on closer inspection there’s never a knot, the string is just jammed in really tightly and won’t unwind properly, so I have to either pull really hard or just unscrew the yoyo.
So I’m wondering if this is a common problem in 4A or if it’s a problem with this specific yoyo. I run into this issue about every 10th throw, and the quality of the bind doesn’t seem to matter much. It’s random and very frustrating.
Except for this issue I really like the Gravity so I hope it’s not an issue with the yoyo as I’d rather not shell out $60 for another.
Thanks for any advice
P.S. I’ve tried multiple bearings and it doesn’t seem to make a difference in this regard (all concave though), and I’ve tried multiple string types but mostly use Kitty String Fat Polyester. When I was using thinner strings I was having problems with 1-handed binds. I think I still had the string-snag issue but can’t remember for sure. Are certain string types better for these yoyos?
