I have a ben conde go big and I can do the basic tricks like whips and pops. I am wanting to get more advanced and learn finger grinds and stuff like that. I have a yoyo glove and I can do finger grinds on my arctic circle but not on my go big any tips for that. Also I watch ben conde offstring and his spins alot longer than mine. I know most yoyoers mod there yoyos so I was wondering if there was amod to make it spin longer other than just lube. Also if you could just tell me any good mods for a go big
I don’t do 4A, but i believe it has to do with the amount of experience you have. Much like in 1A, the more you practice, the longer it will spin.
So are there any tips for finger grinds I can seem to hold them for very long
wear a glove, or give up for now, an revisit them when you get more advanced
I put it together. It seems that your a beginner/intermediate.
Your yoyo wont sleep that long because your not throwing it hard enough. So that explains thumb grinds. Short spin, short grinds.
Just practice like 20 at a time, throw catch bind. Try throwing it harder, without throwing it high. I can get a super hard throw, without hitting my ceiling in my room.
You will get it, just do the basic tricks. I cant even do thumb grinds. (Aiming issues lol)
1: As has been said, practice.
2: The bearing plays a big factor. The older N-sized bearings with the cruddy cages tend to be OK. The new plastic-caged ones are OK, but usually not all that great. The new ones with the 10-balls and the cage that completely wraps around the balls in the bearing tends to be the best.
3: Along with quality of bearing, clean it out and don’t lube it. Run that sucker dry. Well, you can lube using the pin/dip method, but I use Dry Play.
4: Grinds: Remove the cap, it will give you more to to hook into for thumb grinds. For hand and finger grinds, that rubber rim is a friction beast so it’s a good think you’re using a glove: On your NON-throw hand! Feel free to use two gloves.
5: Response: Use pads, don’t silicone. I find silicone tears out fast in off-strings. Learn from my mistakes.
6: When you do a normal 4A throw, when you grab the string with your non-throw-hand, pull DOWN a little. That seems to make the yoyo shoot UP and back towards you and increasing spin.
