Who put’s their slip knot yo yo string on the middle phalanx(middle knuckle)? Who puts their slip knot on the proximal phalanx(upper knuckle)? I prefer the proximal phalanx… But I still need to search for my yo yo tape, so I have to switch back and fourth to not cut the blood circulation of my fingers >.<.
Put it in between your middle finger knuckles.
Haha, my bad I thought you where asking which finger to put it on! ;D I just put it in-between my middle finger knuckles.
Also try a yoyo glove(Duncan $4).
Fail, but ok
I put the string on the most back part of my middle finger (the thickest part), I use it in all play styles.
Same with me, its hard to find other players who do this.
I agree, I didn’t know people used it in other places.
I put my string there, too.
Try masking tape out or that blue painters tape. You can cut it to the size you need.
Cut the fingers off a latex glove and use them as a slip on for ur throw finger.
I use the base of my index finger.
I always thought the most common place was middle finger, middle phalanx (between 2nd and 3rd knuckle) because it gives the best control. But do whatever works for you. When I first started, I remember putting it as far back as I could on my index finger. Returning the yoyo repeatedly hit a bone on my palm though, which hurt pretty bad after a while.
also don’t worry about things like yoyo tape, or painters tape, etc etc. Just build up a callous in whatever spot you’re most comfortable using. after a pretty short time, you won’t really feel any pain.
