How to make yoyo string w/o a drill.


#2

there are great youtube tuts, but its really easy


#3

how do you do it. Tell me.


#4

If you dont have a drill you can use a stick and twist it by hand (takes forever)

You would be betteroff just picking up some bulk string here.
It’s money over lots of time spent.


#5

it would seem you either need to find something else that spins and is workable or your stuck using your fingers :confused:


#6

If heard that some people use fishing reels. Not the ones with the button the other kind.


#7

What?

Spinning?
Spin-Casting?(that’s probably the button one)
I doubt it would be a fly reel(for fly fishing, man, that’s a hard one!) or an open reel(often seen in salt water fishing)


#8

Maybe the pictures from buddy-Jim might help. He was the fist person I saw using a fishing reel.

Whatever reel shown in the last picture is the one I’m talking about. I don’t really get buddy-jims process from this but kind of clarifies what kind of reel I was talking about. I still don’t know what its called. I’m not a fisherman…


#9

Its called an Open face spinning reel
