More questions, More fun ;D
As some of you already know, I’ve been practicing with my DM2 for a couple of days now.
My gravity pull has improved a lot so is my throw technique… but still I need more practice.
Now onto the questions.
When I throw my yoyo I can perform the sleeper trick with ease, the issue here is that the sleep times I get are around 20 seconds.
Considering I’m still using the stock string and the stock bearing the DarkMagic2 comes with, is it normal that the yoyo has a short sleep time? or is it my throwing tech?
Sometimes, when I feel like a cro-magnon, I throw my yoyo with more strength than usual. This causes the yoyo to spin quite fast. Now, when I tug it, the yoyo comes back to my hand very fast and more often than not it hits me in the MP section (See image)
This (obviously) hurts a little and I want to avoid as much as posible this situation 'cause the more advanced the tricks, the faster the yoyo spins and the higher will be the force with wich it hits my palm.
What advises can you give me concerning the reception technique? What do you do?
As for now, the way I feel more comfortable with is this:
Once I turm my hand palm-down to tug, I not only turn the hand but lower it so it doesn’t stays in an horizontal position (palm facing down) but in a vertical position (fingers pointing down, palm facing me) this is the way I usually avoid hitting my MP zone.
Thanx in advance for the help and advises
