So i m a pretty short person, about 5,7. And i use uncut Kitty string, wich almost goes up to my neck ;D… Now i like the very long string, it just is what i like. Now i have a problem with the yoyo hitting the ground quite a lot because of that… exspecially when i do stuff like suicide or brent stole. i throw mostly over carpet so my yoyos arent completely beat up, bit its annoying and makes me kind of scared to play over harder ground.
So to my actually question, people seem to always say “from the ground up to the bellybutton” but that just feels stupidly short for me. i will just try out to shorten it a little from the uncut to maybe get fewer dings, but how do other shorter people do it? do you also use string thats “longer than normal”? or do you go by the “rule” and how do you deal with tricks like ladder escape where you have to hit little “holes” or small string segments?
