So, I’m having string tension issues on my fixed axles and I need help diagnosing it.
Basically, If I release all the tension so the string is neutral, the loop at the axle is so loose that the yoyo is no-responsive… And this is a fixed axle wood yoyo. So, to get response, I have to crank up the tension with a UFO or something and now it binds fine, but I can’t complete stall tricks like kick flips and stall suicides. As you can imagine the second I release the loop for the flip it wraps up on me due to the tension and thus can’t be landed.
I’m using Duncan Type 8 cotton strings. I guess the problem is either that the Duncan Type 8’s suck or that the string is shot already, or a combination of both?
Any advice is appreciated.
