Having the same problem. Anyone able to “talk it through?”

I guess I’ll figure it out eventually but a couple of words might help.


#6

The first video explains it well but when you got to move the yoyo infront of your hands think about moving your hands more then the yoyo.


#7

Bringing up an old thread but when i try the trick i get extra wraps around the axle. Can anyone point me towards the correct direct?

You need to lift your arms a little and curl in, there is a very subtle rejection that happens as the yoyo comes around.


#9

You’re talking about the first rotation in?


(Jeremy Mryoyothrower McKay) #10

That is correct. The first rotation is where you get the extra wrap, and if you follow with your throwhand correctly it’s kindof a cross between a rejection and a simple unwraping. It’s really hard to explain, but if you exaggerate your motions you should figure it out.
