I can get a pretty powerful spin going on with my El Ranchero, and I THOUGHT I stumbled across the secret of binding it back… I thought wrong.
I watch Ethan Wong and he just kind of casually throws a loop around and gently returns it. I mean… it doesn’t LOOK like he’s doing anything special.
But this is hard stuff! When I try to drape a loop around, the response doesn’t grab. If I try to whip some loop in, I keep getting it all tangly on my throwhand or throwhand wrist.
Any pointers? Any “breakthrough moments” for any of you where you thought, “Ahah, that’s the small adjustment I had to make!”?
It it matters (don’t see why it should!) I typically do the spin on my thumb, but I can do it on any other finger if need be.
