Well, to put it shortly, I can’t tug the ball straight up without the bead and the end of the string coming out. Whether just pulling it up to one of the cups or trying to do a lighthouse, it just comes out and hangs there. I don’t know if there’s something I should do, or it’s just technique, or…?
Also, this didn’t come about until I restrung it. When I did, all this wood pulp come out. I didn’t think much of it then, but I realized later that that was probably what was keeping it down, and I had already just thrown it out. Any ideas on what to do?
