It’s been 3 days since my first-ever yoyo came. I bought a Duncan Flying Squirrel which I found pretty good to start with (considering the cute counterweight (I’m looking forward to try 5A sometime), price, looks and overal opinions on it). I’ve been practicing sleepers all day long (even at school).
I’m not going to ask how to force my yoyo to stay on a string when I try to do mounts and things like these because I’ve already figured out that I can’t do any of this without throwing a perfect sleeper (If I’m wrong on this, let me know).
Is it best to practice with a very responsive yoyo (friction stickers are going to die soon, I know that, but ATM they respond alot) so I can get punished by throwing a bad sleeper etc., or if it’s better to put one sticker off so I get longer sleeper time during which I can practice other beginner tricks?
If neither of those two opinions is correct just give me a hint on how to start. I’d appreciate it very much.
