Counterweight 5a tips


#1

Everytime i catch the yoyo back i always hit my fingers- any advice


#2

Just keep working with it. I used to do the same thing, now I only rarely do that. Keep trying to catch it with just your thumb and index finger. (I guess I’m assuming you’re holding the CW like Andre shows…Yes? No?)


(M²) #3

Try to catch it between your index and thumb.


#4

yes i have been trying to catch like andre


(M²) #5

If it still hits your finger spread it wider. I like to use an undersized yo for 5a like a maverick because it’s easier to catch and find it eisier to control with the cw.


#6

Is a legacy a good sized yoyo


#7

Sure. I learned 5a on a Spinfaktor HG, which I believe is right about the same size. To be honest, I say just suck up the pain for a while. If it hurts too much, then take a break for a while, but if you don’t go that route, you’ll never learn it. Have fun! You’ll get it down! :wink:

He never said he got it, so it’s OK if we still help him. Here’s a video that helped me understand the basics: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJZjYxRhhRY
