I just started yoyoing and received my Dark Magic yesterday. I figured I would buy a yo yo that I will grow into. When I was trying the Trapeze trick, the yoyo actually came up too early than expected and almost smacked me in the mouth…so I am kinda traumatized right now. I have a couple of questions about this yo yo.
Sometimes when I want to bring it up, it just stays asleep and wont come up. How do I make it more consistent when I want it to come up and make it stay down when I want it to?
I noticed that when I make it sleep, it stays level when it is spinning, but once it slows down, it tends to start leaning to one side and stop. How do I fix this?
Can I use any type of string for now? Since there are no hi-tech yo yo stores around here, can I just buy regular yoyo strings that I might find at a toy store or a hobby shop?
