Well as the name of the thread implies this thread will be centered around tips. Basically I want to hear tips for anything yoyo related.
I think everyone has to have some kind of tip that they could share it doesn’t matter if you came up with it yourself or picked it up off some other yoyoer, I’d like to hear them (As would others I’d like to think).
Here let’s kick start this now…
-If you get a gift card or a hotel key hold on to it. It makes a nice tool for siliconeing a yoyo and I’ve heard that you can make shims with them too.
-When slilconeing a yoyo clean the recess to make the silicone hold longer.
-After Siliconeing a yoyo put a screw in the nozzle that you screw on the silicone tube so you can just pull it out with all the silicone in it rather then clean it out before hand and making a mess or taking forever to clean it later.
-To insure your slip knot holds (If it’s made of poly or nylon.) take a lighter (Kids please get permission or a parent to help.) and heat the knot a bit (Very short time don’t start a fire.) to melt it so it holds together better. (I like to do this with the stings I make because the poly is very slippery and the knots comes undone.)
Just right < > Too long
-Don’t like dings? Don’t do tricks that you haven’t mastered over areas they can get dinged on if dropped. Practice over carpet.
Well I don’t know if these tips helped anyone but I hope at least your tips can help me (And others) if mine didn’t.
