I see many people at meets and contests who untwist the string up to two inches to put it on the yoyo, instead of opening up the yoyo and only having to unravel it a little bit. I found this strange because I always unscrewed my yoyos to put on a new string. I see people do it both ways all the time, but I never really hear an explanation as to why.
So, how do you guys do it? Do you have any rhyme or reason as to why?
I unscrew my yoyo. The reason why I do this is because I only have to unravel a tiny end of the string so it doesn’t get all rough.
