I always cut my fresh strings at my belly button, so after I tie it it would come up about 2 inches below my belly button. But I lately found myself needing more string for tricks. So now I have it to where if my yoyo is on the ground, and my finger is tied in the slip knot, it comes about 3 inches above my belly button. I find that my play feels a lot more stable, but that I can’t play nearly as fast. now i don’t know if that is because I need to get used to it, or if the extra string really does effect speed so drastically. So I wanna see where you guys are playing, and if length effects your stability and speed as much as mine.
And sorry for my constant use of the word belly button. It is just the only standard of measuring string that takes someone’s hight into the equation.
by the way… I’m talking about 1A play
