I’ve seen a lot of yo-yoers do whips, but instead of immediately whipping the yo-yo, they manipulate the whip to do some “flair” before whipping, such as in this video at :38 and ending at :47. What is this called and are there any tuts?
im not sure if they have a name because they are usually custom i think
