revolutions


#1

I’m trying to do the trick revolutions now and i can’t seem to get how the slack swings with the yoyo :stuck_out_tongue: I’m hoping that someone can send me some tips to help me figure it out! ;D

the way i do it is immediatly once i hit the 1.5 mount, i pinch, swing the yoyo over towards my non throwhand side a little bit, swing the yoyo clockwise first on the outside of my arm, and then the inside and repeat. This trick takes a lot of practice so keep trying it and eventually you will get the hang of it.

bro, i had the exact same problem. This video helped me out alot. Revolutions is one of my favorite tricks now :slight_smile:
once you hit the 1.5 mount immediatly start swinging. the string has to stay in the gap of the yoyo. Once you hit 1.5 mount turn your throwhand outside, then inside, to get the yoyo swinging

Revolutions was difficult for me as well. It took me a good 2 weeks of constant practice to get it going well. Remember you don’t have to go right into it at first. Once you get into the 1.5 mount pinch the string and focus on the initial swing. Once you get the first iteration down the momentum is easy to maintain. I found catching the slack to end the trick the most difficult part.

It’s a matter of finding the right place to pinch and the flow in your swinging. It’s like you are looking for the trick instead of learning it.
