I am beginning to learn how to yoyo. I just got 2 yoyos a Hubstack and a FAST 201 (both from yoyo factory).
I bought them from yoyotricks and they both came with pretty short string (shorter on the Hubstack), I think it was on purpose as they are sold as beginner’s yoyo to avoid people having trouble with strings too long.
Now my problem is the following, I can use both yoyos to consistently throw sleepers and catch them back. And I started to do some basic tricks (walk the dogs, rock the baby). When I use the 201 I mostly do better than with the hubstack with one exception, very often the starburst will catch the string and jam it. It is specially true when I try to do a fast wind or when I do rock the baby.
If I take rock the baby as an example, I will rock the yoyo then release the bottom hand the yoyo will come back up nicely but in fact the string will be so jammed in the startburst that I’ll have to manually unjam it before I can rethrow.
Sometime the teeth will catch when the yoyo is on its way down when I am throwing making the sleeper all wobbly.
Surprisingly it seems to snag less when the yoyo is tightened all the way with the teeth facing each other.
Anybody has a suggestion about what I may be doing wrong?
