double or nothing trouble


#1

i always land it on multiple strings. ugh help?


#2

when you swing the yoyo around, try to keep the string more spaced out on your fingers


#3

so like on my left the first time around i put it closest to my knuckle.

then should i put the next on like the middle?

then on the mount it should be closest to my nail?


#4

Yes, that sounds about right.

Also go slow don’t rush and swing the yoyo around really fast


#6

Just swing the yoyo around your two fingers, and then think to yourself that all you have to do now is land the yoyo on Trapeze.


#7

This.

Make sure your strings are almost in a zig-zag pattern. There will be more space in between the strings and less chance for the yo-yo to land on multiple strings.

Practice the last part as x52 described in getting the final trapeze in. When you try to do the whole trick in a fluid motion all that practice with the final trapeze will come in handy in having a consistent double-or-nothing.


#8

You could also do a trapeze, pinch the loop and swing it over


#9

Or…

Trapeze to Double or Nothing

This can give you a feel for the final outcome.

But it’s more impressive done from scratch.
