Looping....


#1

I can somewhat loop but I am having some difficulties trying to get it down. I don’t understand all this 1’o clock and 11’o clock angle stuff. Your supposed to keep your hand straight aren’t you? Another problem is after about the second loop the yo-yo starts tilting all different ways… how do I correct this?


#2

flick your wrist in opposite direction of tilt on the next loop.


#3

Whenever I loop it tilts to but it’s casual. Just continue to loop and then it’ll get straight.


#4

Terrible advice. Don’t practice bad loops. If your loops start to tilt or go bad, stop and start over. Don’t practice bad habits. Make yourself do it correctly.


#5

Well yeah, it’s not right. You don’t see people looping with tilted loops. But what I mean is that it’s not the end of the world. Yeah, you’re probably right. :smiley:

When looping a stable loop will have the yoyo tilting a bit to the right (1 o’clock  /  ) for a right handed thrower and slightly to the left (11 o’clock  \  ) for a left handed thrower.
