So, as detailed here, I just got a DM2. So far I love it - I’m able to do all sorts of things I couldn’t before (e.g. I was having trouble doing ripcord without the yoyo binding, but now I can pull it off easy). Binding took a little work at first, but it’s coming along. That said, given that this is my first unresponsive, I had a couple of questions:
Sometimes when I bind, there’s a long loop of string that doesn’t wind around the axle and instead is sticking out to the side. Usually this doesn’t result in a knot, and I can still throw a sleeper pretty hard, but how do I avoid getting the loop? Is it just a matter of practice?
How do you jumpstart an unresponsive? I’ll flick it to get it spinning (like I would a responsive) but it seems like I can’t get it spinning fast enough to then successfully bind it and pull it back up.
Thanks in advance for the help.
