WARNING! total n00b problem ahead:
I just started getting into yoyo a week ago and picked up a raider and freakhand at the local toys r us. I spend most of my time with the freakhand trying to learn string tricks, but after a week now it’s not behaving like I’d expect it to. At first it was easy to get good sleeps out of it and I didn’t have much trouble learning to bind it, but now whenever I throw, it feels like it just drops to the end of the string and has little to no spin. Also the string comes unraveled very easily and even after retwisting it wants to stay loosely twisted and the yoyo has even come off a few times. I changed the string once and after a few days it’s back to this state.
So, I feel like I have to be doing something really wrong with my throw. I don’t have any problems with the raider, but I’ve played more with that kind of yoyo. Any help is appreciated! ;D
