help with gyroscopic flop

First off, welcome to the forum!

The poll wasn’t really needed but whatever. Most likely you need to pull harder or about the same. The key is that you need to keep the strings away from the side of the yoyo.

Dang, nice. I want the trinity.

From experience, pulling at the same time for me helps.

It takes a lot of practice to get the right feel, in my opinion. Try out what works best for you. I pull tight, but not so that it takes loads of effort. I also like to point my front hand more downward, I don’t know why this works, but it tends to. Try it!

Apetrunk is right, keep the string off the side of the yoyo, when I do it I like to bring the yoyo up to eye level so I can look straight down the gap.

Apetrunk is right, try to keep the string off the side. Also i like to pull soft at first and progressively harder.
