I’m new to yoyoing and that is all I have gathered but it is soooo true. There arent really any tips to throwing better, I just throw, up and down for a good 20-40 minutes and I have improved a lot just by that. Ive started to get the hang of snapping my wrist to get a good throw. If your throw tilts to the left/right try and throw a little to the opposite way to straighten it out.
practicing your throw is sooo important because its the foundation of all your tricks… get some good muscle behind your throw… snapping your wrist means to make a jerking motion downward as your yoyo leaves your hand… the more you throw the better, stronger, and more accurate you will become.
When I throw a sleeper, I “aim” the yo-yo for a spot on the ground about three feet in front of me. When I release, I let my wrist go almost completely limp and let the force of my arm cause the “wrist snap” that so many others have described.
Once you’ve done this, you’ll notice that the yo is going to want to swing back towards you. To stop this, simply bring your throw hand in closer to your body just as the yo-yo begins to swing back. If done correctly, you’ll end up with a completely straight sleeper spinning fast as all get out.
In certain circles you might hear this referred to as the “McBride Sleeper” method. This is the reason why…
