I am to the point where string tension really bothers me and would like to hear if I am doing something to cause so much or just not throwing to loosen it enough.
I find that after two or three combos/tricks I need to loosen the tension. I never see people loosening string tension in videos so am curious if am doing something to make it so tight so quickly. It seems like a new string will last 5-10 minutes before the tension starts taking over to the point of spinning it counter clockwise at the end of the string between tricks. I know there is the UFO type method of controlling it but still find myself just spinning it with my hand.
Does this sound normal as far as it getting spaghetti like so quick (literally a couple of tricks at most once string is broken in)? It’s not so tight that can’t wrap it back around the yoyo but is too tight to perform optimally for sure.
How do you all manage tension and how often?
Are there strings that are better than others regarding this topic? I use “normal” kitty poly and YYE poly.
