Help with Magic Drop


#1

I’ve been trying to do magic drop for EONS and I can get it if I’m lucky but I need to start getting it consistently

I understand the whole “Make your throwhand into a gun shape and twist into the string” But when I try to land the yoyo on the back string, I either land on both strings or miss the string entirely

I really need to learn it to finish kamikaze

Any tips?

I’m working on this trick as well.

I find I put my non-throw hand thumb into the trapeze loop and push the string back towards me.

On my throw hand, I “make the gun”, and then turn it palm up and move my throw hand slightly towards me relative to the non-throw hand(or move the non-throw hand forward). Make sure you have a fair amount of string on the looped side, around half, or you’ll get the rejection landing on both strings or just the front.

Try:

and / or


#4

Take the loop around your freehand index and spread it out with all of your fingers. And more jump the yoyo than swing it.


#5

also try hitting the loop coming from your NTH point with your TH pointer this will help reject the string somewhat


#6

If you do that in a trick ladder contest, the trick won’t count.  What I do is like it says in the yotricks.com video.  I point my freehand index finger down and move it a little forward to hit the back string.  I’ve heard that from more than one expert.  Also, on my yoyo hand, I separate my index finger and thumb to make it “drop” onto the back string.  There’s a trick called “Candy Rain” that uses the magic drop in the front.  Check it out.
