Like most people, I had problems learning Magic Drop. Watching the MFD tutorial was the turning point for me - specifically the Magic Drop to Shockwave tutorial - (http://www.monkeyfinger.ca/page12/page13/complicated.html)
My question is this:
Is it ‘legal’ - contest wise - to make that move with your non throw hand ring finger? It creates the perfect separation and tension to land the yoyo just right and make the string reject. When I first saw it, my palm instantly smacked my forehead… perfect adjustment… thank you Jeremy!
Part of me doesn’t care, because it works 95% of the time and I can now work on a bunch of tricks that use Magic Drop, but there’s another part of me that wants to know if making that move would be counted against you somehow.
I want to say those Monkey Finger tutorials are awesome… not trying to be critical of them at all. Just wondering about that aspect of the trick.
