My sleeper


#1

No, im not asking on how to throw a strong sleeper, I can do that.
However, when I do throw a strong sleeper, the yoyo always flies behind me.
It doesn’t tilt or anything, Im just concerned I might smack a dude in the face… :-X


#2

Well that used to happen to me, but instead of hitting some dude i hit my mom :smiley:
Just keep working on it, after a while it started to go away


#3

Instead of throwing down, throw about 2 or 3 feet in front of you. Also, make sure your string isn’t too long.


#4

I can’t really explain it, but all you really have to do is just throw it hard, but cause it not to swing back.


#5

Hiting your mom is nothing. Um, I’ve hit waaay worse things than that…


#6

I’ve smashed asphalt and scratched my throw :’(


#7

Well I let my cousin play on my dm and instead of throwing it into a sleeper he throws it at the wall :’(

When you follow through with your throw, you might be following through a little TOO MUCH so it goes behind you.
Try to lessen the intensity of your follow through or do as Apetrunk said:


#9

im sry but i laughed when i read this,lol


#10

When I was still learning to bind I got this huge knot and threw it as hard as I could and I hit my elbow.
I couldn’t feel anything from my throw arm for a couple minutes :-[


#11

Let him play 5A :smiley:

Well, lets see…

3 Times in the elbow
5 Times in my man parts (Followed by 2 minutes of laying on the floor)
2 Times in the chin (Drew blood as well)
1 Time in the teeth (I think i bent them!)
1 Time in the forehead with a counterweight
10+ times in the palm
I pulled a muscle throwing a sleeper
I got a weak case of carpal tunnel
All the skin on my index finger is shredded

Uhh… yeah…

Either i’m accident prone, or yoyoing is a dangerous sport (luckily, I don’t have a metal)


#12

oh i expected you to own an 888, lol

#14

Fixed.


#15

Try to throw it straight down. Don’t let it rock.

I hit my friend in the head doing a sleeper. (long story) ;D

I woke up bright and early in the morning, ready for a day of yoing. Threw a sleeper, forgotten that the previous night I had gotten a knot. The yoyo shredded it’s way back up the string ,It aimed for my eye and landed it’s target… I dropped to the ground for 5 minutes trying to think about of what just happened ???.
That day there were 2 knots one in the yoyo and the other on my head.


#16

you can sleep the yoyo and intercept the string with your hand. i saw yuuki spencer and many other players do this. you kinda stop the yoyo from going bCK TO FAR by “blocking the strings”

i havent thought of that solution… smart! i mean even though i have done that before, i havent done it for that reason
