I’ve been throwing for quite some time now, on and off though. I’m left handed, and have never, ever been able to maintain good string tension (for slack-filled tricks anyway). I’ve never tried left handed string, and really don’t think I should have to since I know there are plenty of really good left handed yoyoers who probably don’t use it.
Basically, I can easily do pretty simple slack maneuvers but when it comes to swinging the yoyo and slack around at the same time in a trick or popping the yoyo out of the string formation and whipping the slack a certain way into the gap I just can’t get it. My string never wants to cooperate, and it’s always gotten to the point where even in a tutorial if I get to a difficult slack portion I give up. Not to brag, but I’m pretty decent in my opinion when it comes to tech tricks but when it comes to flowy tricks with slack, my tricks are anthing but flowy and I can’t even complete them.
How do you make slack tricks look so easy? & as a lefty how should I maintain string tension better? I’ve even seen really old freestyles from almost 10 years ago where people had slacks down better than me, but I’ve just never been able to grasp them. Also, I use Twisted Stringz Format B string more often than not lately.
