I think i might have something wrong with my throwing technique. When i throw straight down (not a breakaway) the yoyo gets to the end of the string and bounces a little bit. And usually when i throw whether its a breakaway or a regular throw the yoyo doesn’t stay spinning stably for very long, it like slants to the side after a while and eventually starts twisting around. Am i doing something wrong, or is it that i have an imbalanced yoyo or something?
When you throw make sure you have the bottom of your hand aligned with the ground if not it will seem off balanced
okay thanks for the advice i’ll try to make sure i do that
I don’t know how long you’ve been playing, I’m guessing not long.
If that’s the case, this is something that I think happens to almost everyone. When I first started throwing unresponsive, I was devastated about it because my throw always tilted to one side and wasn’t stable very long. I thought “well, if I can’t fix this then I can’t progress at all!”.
But, I just kept doing what I could, and over the course of 2-3 weeks the issue just fixed itself. Now I have trouble getting a throw that isn’t really good, even if I let my form get weird.
eh i’ve been throwing for about a year. a lot of my throws are fine, but sometimes i’ll get in a funk and just have a bunch of throws that tilt and stuff. sometimes i think its because my string has too much tension. would that have an impact on the yoyo tilting?
not in my experience just a throw that’s not straight.
This happens to me sometimes and I find that for me the problem is that I am not throwing hard enough. This may be your problem.
Put a little bit more focus on your throw. Try not to just unconsciously toss it. If you notice that your yoyo is tilted left on a bad throw, try to tilt your hand to the right on your next throw. If you find your throw is tilted right on a bad throw, try to tilt your hand to the left on your next throw. Overcompensating will help your muscle memory remember what is right and wrong. Hope this helps! :]
