This post really only applies to younger people or shorter people that need to adjust their string. Some people who are taller may like to, but I don’t know.
Ok well this is just about how string length can really affect how you play. When I started, I would usually just take a string out, slap it on the yoyo, and just start playing. I was only around 5 ft. when I started throwing so the string was pretty long for me. Even about 6 or 7 months ago I was using Toxic’s and those where very long on me. Then about three months ago I started to cut my string to the right length and it made all the difference in th world. You get harder throws because you don’t have to lift up your arm to keep it off of the floor anymore.You also don’t have to worry about dinging it as much. Now I’m about 5 ft. 4 in. and I still cut a little bit off of the bulk Yoyoexpert strings.
If your not adjusting your string and you want to but don’t know where to put it this is what I do. I cut it about an inch above my belly button, so when you tie it and make your slip knot it’s almost on your belly button.
Just remember adjust your string!! It makes a big difference.
