Just can't get the advanced tricks- hand starting yoyo


#1

my hand starting yoyo method never catches the string, it just spins and gets jerked into the air and down again.


#2

What yoyo are you using? If it’s somewhat unresponsive, you’ll have to start it and then bind it. Also, are you snap starting or thumb starting?


#3

X-Convict O-ring response the gap is only a bit loosened from the tightest area possible, thumb starting


#4

Ok I would suggest either tightening it as far as it’ll go (don’t overtighten!) or lossening it a bit so that it doesn’t grip and then (learn to if you don’t already know how to) bind.


#5

lol now the strings falling away from me:O


#6

What? If you mean what I think you mean, learn to bind.


#7

i know how to bind, its just that sometimes my X-Convict is so unresponsive it’ll slip down even after three wraps in a bind, and im talking about starting the yoyo and pulling with my other arm so that itll somehow bind itself like in the demo video:D

He has his yoyo tightened all the way and probably even some thick lube in the bearing.

The X-ConVict definitely doesn’t need multiple wraps for a bind. Try working on your binding skills and you can get it then. If you want some good help with that, make a short video of you doing some binding and we can help you out then.
