firstly i should say my yoyo set up. it’s a yyj speeder with double silicone o-ring, konkave bearing, and 0.5mm shims.
first problem: i’ve been trying to learn the upwards bind, sometimes known as the mickey bind. i cant get the swinging motion right, and the yoyo rarely catches the string and comes back. the loop thingy that i form before swinging just comes out and the yoyo falls back down… any tips?
2nd problem: for skin the gerbil, my yoyo dies out pretty in the middle of the trick when multiple string layers are loaded in. i also cant really go the sideways maneuvering well so maybe that’s the cause. but could it also be partially due to my yoyo not having a big enough gap?
