magic drop

when i attempt to do magic drop the string rejects too late. does anyone know the cause of this?

Happens to me, too. There’s not enough pressure against the catch zone/rim to cause the rejection, and I’m not sure the best way to increase this pressure. I’ve been semi-“hooking” the bottom string segment on the NTH and pulling it toward my body a bit. Seems to work, but I can’t help feeling there’s gotta be a better way.

ill try that

that works about one out of twenty times

Point your throw hand thumb toward the ceiling.

Watched the video for MrYoyoM’s “Educutioner” trick and remembered that he has a good Magic Drop tutorial. Also in the Educutuioner video a quick tip is to move the NTH forward as you do the drop. Intuitively, I probably wouldn’t have done that. But somehow it’s helping!

it is pointed towards the ceiling :-\

I point mine towards my left ear (right-handed).

is there a free video for this?

Within the video itself (when viewed on YouTube), there is a link to the standalone Magic Drop tutorial. Another good one is the yotricks one.
