Well, I FINALLY learned and completed a string of more than 5 successful Magic Drops in a row this morning!
I was curious as to how long it took you guys to get this trick down to a level of consistency…It took me about 2 months to get it to the point where I could get the String Rejection. I had to learn this because I am working on that trickster of old known as the Trick Ladder. Yep, I have been stuck on Kamikaze for quite sometime now.
Anyway, here is what I finally did to get that beloved String Rejection to finally happen. First things first, you have to have your Thumb and Index Finger open as wide as humanly possible plus the Thumb needs to be completely Vertical and aiming for the Sun. Second, the Yo-Yo (for me) had to swing directly UNDER your Index Finger’s Farthest Two Knuckles. Third, with your Non-Throw Hand, you should do the Tilt towards the Floor and Outwards as is shown in the Tutorial Vids but RIGHT AFTER the “String Rejection” has happened and you have landed the Ho-Yo on that Back String…Even your Non-Throw Hand hand back out to a Stationary Trapeze to avoid the Yo-Yo from Tilting and losing Spin-Time. Lastly, I noticed that you can aim your Throw Hand inward about a millimeter as the Yo-Yo is Swinging under your Index and the String will Reject. I am NOT talking about twisting your Throw Hand so that the Thumb becomes Horizontal NO-NO-NO, the Thumb MUST REMAIN Vertical…I am talking about moving Index Finger along with the Whole Hand slightly inward at the Wrist Joint, then evening it back out as before.
