5a help

Hey guys, I’ve been practicing 5a lately. I can do some stuff, like 360/720, but some stuff seems impossible. I can’t tell if it’s my counterweights or what. I have a rubber ball that I drilled a hole in and a yoyofactory “spin top button”. I’ve been trying to use them, but they seem so heavy, like it takes a lot of force to get them to go around my fingers and stuff. I’ve been using the 2010 G5 (Z-stacked version). If I could get some help with this I’d be very grateful!


First off:

Second, you can always try using a lighter counterweight. Use a smaller ball, dice, or string ball.
