Fingers Hurting

I don’t know if this is the right section…
But anyway,
I have been Yo-Yoing for 2 days now. In total I have done about 5 hours of Yo-Yoing. However, my middle finger is red and hurts when i throw it. I loosened the knot, but that still doesn’t help, because when I throw a sleeper it tugs on my finger still. any help?

Put tape around your finger where the string goes.

It’s going to hurt unless you put tape or something there, or, play enough to have developed a callous.

Very normal. Wait till a callous is formed and you won’t even notice it. Just throw ALOT.

Alright, I put a band-aid on it, it seems to be helping.
