magic drop


#1

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


#2

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.

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!


#7

it is pointed towards the ceiling :-\


#8

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


#9

is there a free video for this?


#10

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.

i think that the problem was that i wasn’t swinging hard enough. figures
