Tension on the string.

Hello.So i’ve been practicing plastic whip but i can’t do it because the tension in the string is too high.So i loosen the tension and when i wind it up the tension comes back >:(.And when i throw it it is way too high to do anything.Is there any way to fix that?

sry for english it’s my 2nd language

Frequently caused by over lubed bearings :smiley:

Well i cleard my bearing and it’s sleep time is good and it isn’t responsive so i don’t think it’s overlubed.

^^^ Good job! ^^^

Watch string tension videos.

Hopefully I can be a little more help here. Usually when you wind a yoyo up, you are actually twisting the string back up. If you haven’t learned it yet, I highly recommend learning to snap-start. You’ll retain that neutral tension that you would lose when winding up…plus snap starts are pretty impressive-looking to the general public.

Learn it. One of the best ways to adjust tension.

This right here. Unless you want to take the string off your finger and then wind; that leaves it pretty neutral when you tie back in.

Learning to snap start isn’t necessary to keeping neutral tension, you can also just use a tension-adjusting move after you throw from a normal wind.
