After getting back into yoyos I am burning through strings very quickly. I decided to try making my own.
After attaching the threads to the two anchor points and spinning you then fold the string over. I’ve seen some people then use a drill to spin in the opposite direction. Others do not spin a second time. They just fold the string over and then let go. When I do this I get nothing but knots. Other people say that when you let go the string wraps around itself, creating the finished string - not mine. I have to use the drill again and spin in reverse. Why? Am I doing something wrong?
Also, what thread weight is generally used? I’ve been experimenting with 40wt. And 50wt.
