Thanks, BeneTan. Which thumb are you pressing down with? I’m guessing the NTH?
Tried for a while today (using the Supra!) and I could get it to reject a few times, but at the wrong moment and in such a sloppy way that I couldn’t hit any strings and spun out almost immediately.
I wonder if I should rig up a yoyo with a longer string than I usually use. Even with the rejection, coming all the way around that hand doesn’t leave much string to land on. Once I get the trick down, I can focus on doing it with my usual string length.
Actually, was just re-watching the Slusny tutorial by Vasek, and he uses his NTH fingers to help-- hooks the string and pulls it towards his body. I probably guessed right with your thumb suggestion: he’s doing the same thing but with fingers instead of thumb. I can see which one feels more natural for me. He’s also only going over 2 fingers… and then sliding his hand back in during the pop. I’d like to do it fully Jason Lee style (for no good reason other than it’s Jason Lee) but I can dig this modification for now if it ends up being helpful.
