Practice makes you better… im much better at aiming magic drop to the correct string after 2 days (im lying since i knew i was going to pick it I’ve been working on it for almost a week).
I also mentioned magic drop in Wrist mount…i can’t land that on the correct string at all… but i got a clean video of the rejection to show u guys what I’m talking about. Once on the right string just drop the loop off the TH and your back in Wrist Mount.

Lets See some MAGIC!

Okay, time to try Magic Drop and Shockwave.
I can hit Magic Drop, but hardly 3 in a row.
Sometimes the Magic Drop hits the front string, in which I cant perform the Shockwave, how to improve accuracy for repetition?

Edit: hmmmm after reading the posts and watching those videos, I saw a hand movement that is helping a lot. Uhuuuul!!!

Edit2: Uuuuhhhhhhulll!!! 2 in a row, that’s the best I could manage so far.

Anybody tried doing a basic under the arm rejection?

The motion of the yoyo swinging forward on the plane helps activate the rejection. So- I try to invision this same motion as I go through magic drop. As I move it towards my TH I think about the path it will take, a loop angled to travel up over my TH and land on the back string. I also remind myself to allow the yoyo to float over(as opposed to being tight on the string).

Just putting that out there, as these things greatly helped me with the first part of this repeater.

Tried to find a better use for a shockwave in a tiny combo.

I never used shockwave as element since the rejection to the back string is a kind of annoying and way more complicated then many other rejection tricks. But now that I tasted the flavour I will see what it can be used for. Looking forward to other ideas. I think wrist mounts should also give good transitions into a shockwave.

Second time in so many days that I heard “bucket mount”… dont know that one.

I would explain it if you open a wrist mount with two fingers of your none throw hand. Then your Yo-Yo is hanging in a bucket like setup. But I meant wrist mount in my text… will change it

I mentioned doing magic drop in Wrist mount which is very cool. I was able to get a few clips of it on my commute today. I realized the trick to landing it is to physically move the top string out of the way with your NTH.

Anyone know any other mounts we can explore with magic drop?

I just realized a trick I learned (half of :sweat_smile:) a while ago does 2 magic drops from a double or nothing. First lands on the front string and second lands on the back

Also I’ve tried the wrist mount and nailed it once without realizing what I did then ended up in a double wrapped GT a few times
