So, I was trying some sumo, I think. It’s this style with an unwound loop of string with the yoyo inside of it. It wasn’t really working, so I stuck a swivel on it. You can’t do any ‘hidden’ tricks with it (the string would fall out of the swivel) but I think the ability to actually perform sumo tricks is awesome. It’s like, part 1A part 4A. To make this setup:
1 Eagle Claw swivel (preferably)
1 Extra String
1 Sturdy Yoyo
Step 1: Unwind your string and cut off the knot. Take your double long string and rub it until it’s slack.
Step 2: Double up your string so it’s ‘normal’ and tie a normal knot.
Step 3: Slide your string into your swivel and slap a slip knot on your swivel’s other side.
Step 4: Put your yoyo in your loop of string
