Sidewinder fingerspin bind?


#1

I’ve been trying to pull this off for weeks, but I still can’t get it. Any tips offered are greatly appreciated! http://youtu.be/bQXNxxtZ-v4 This is the video I’ve used as a resource, as well as the 8 second long clip of Pálli.

If you can already do a whipping bind for fingerspins, it’s just the same thing.

Whip toward the yoyo and as the string is about to bind you position your throwhand directly over the yoyo at a sufficient elevation to create light tension. Move your throwhand up or down (or up and down!) to modify the “sine wave” shape of the rejecting string.

It’s just a timing thing. Moving your hand above the spinning yoyo at the moment right when the string is about to grab for the bind.
