So I’m having some difficulty with The Zipper. This may be a bit difficult to explain. I am able to go into the Brain Twister mount, exit over my thumb, and land into the trapeze just fine. However, when I roll my throw hand over my non-throw hand to begin the loops out of the trapeze mount, I am forced to immediately bring my throw hand back upwards to complete the second roll of the dismount.
Technically, I am able to complete the trick continuously, but it does not look like how Andre does it in the video. When Andre brings his throw hand over his non-throw hand to dismount from the trapeze, he seems to be able to pull his throw hand downward to create the momentum to dismount the yoyo. When I attempt to pull my throw hand downward, I can only complete one loop around my non-throw hand, and the yoyo ends up stuck without completing the dismount. Either that, or it binds on my hand.
Has anyone else had this issue? I’m curious what exactly I am doing wrong and I cannot seem to figure it out. I am happy I can complete the trick the way I am doing it now, but it looks nowhere near as smooth as when Andre does it.
