So, the last 3 days I’ve been playing with my yoyo.
At first I couldn’t make the simplest trick: the Gravity Pull.
I did everything as the guys in the videos. Exactly the same throw but for some weird reason, when I did the slight tug my yoyo wouldn’t come back.
I started to get frustrated and did some dumb moves to try and figure it out how it works and archieved nothing.
After a whole day of throwing, I started to archieve it! I didn’t know exactly why but I was doing it! the tug was a bit harder than in the videos but I was doing it! So, I decided to perform a trick a bit more advanced (yah, delusional me haha) I threw the yoyo to the front and upwards. I couldn’t grab the yoyo as it came to me (and even hit me in the fingers haha)
Since I couldn’t grab the yoyo, let it hang from my finger and I noticed it started to spin. I thought “ah, my string is very tight!” so I let it to get loose.
To check how tight or loose is my string, I grab the yoyo with my left hand while I have the end of the string in my mid finger. If the string draws an U then it’s loosen but if asa soon as I start to grab the yoyo the string starts to twirl.
At first I thought a loosen string aws the best, but as soon as I started to throw again, I noticed the yoyo was just like the day before. What did I do? O.o everything was working just fin and then after that failed trick, the yoyo stopped working… unless…
Performs the trick that tightens the string
Throws the yoyo
Marvelous!!! Gravity pull works!!!11one
So I came to the conclusion that a tight string makes a yoyo more responsive and a loose string helps the yoyo to be unresponsive.
My question is: Am I right or is it me?
A tight string = Responsive yoyo?
A loose string = Unresponsive yoyo?
Thanx for the help
