string adjustment.....HELp!


Just wondering what others use to adjust thier string tension during play with a non responsive yoyo (888)? I thow alot of side style tricks and not much else and ussally end up taking string off finger to let it spin out to get a relax string again. Just wondering if there is an easier way/ trick to quickly adjust the string tension with out removing it from finger??

a quick sidewinder can do the trick.
Or what some players will do is do a mini sidewinder by pinching the string about 3 inches from the yoyo and flipping it like a sidewinder in either direction depending if the string is tighter or looser.
