    Pull tight, make sure the strings you have in your throwhand are together, not seperated.

    Most important, keep the string away from the sides of the yoyo.. or else it won't do anyting.

    I suggest you to try doing it first wth the Trapeze method:
    Get into a Trapeze and loop your throw-hand string on the yo and then pull the strings... after that try the whip method...

    the two strings that will be away from your throw hand I believe. They need to be kept together tightly

    Here is the not so secret - secret about the gyro flop, thanks to Luke Vader helping me out with this.
    1. Land trapeze
    2. Wrap throwhand once around yoyo to get into basic position.

    Now when you pull you will have 2 string on your non throwhand, the BOTTOM string should have about 90% of the tension, in fact you can pull almost 100% on the bottom string. You want to make sure that bottom string is in a perfect line with the other string coming off your throwhand. Make sure they are exactly lined up. If the yoyo starts to rotate in any direction besides the flopping motion, GUIDE BOTH OF THE STRINGS so that the string are lined up in the gap. As it gets over half way through the flop, lighten up a bit on the string tension. Thats the secret to this thing.

    Best of luck to ya.

    When I do this trick the yoyo just turns like crazy and spins out, leaving me to untanble the mess.

    Following the way I described it, plus the basic movement on here http://sector_y.yoyoing.com/Tricks/S...p/Doc_Flop.htm should solve your problem. If you are still having issues with it, be more specific in exactly what is happenning, I am sure we can troubleshoot it. Give it a shot, and get back to us. ;) Good Luck. Once you get it you will get it everytime without fail.

    #1 thing is make sure the "strings stay lined up, across the bottom, and guide the strings so that they stay straight in the gap. Look from above if you can't really tell, just to see the motion of how the yoyo will try to twist slightly in the opposite direction of the normal flop rotation. Most likely what you are describing is the yoyo twisting in that opposite direction, and you arent moving one hand forward and one hand back to line the strings up in the gap. So it hits the friction device and does that spin out thing. Make sure most of the tension is on the bottom string as well, and that it forms a straight line across the bottom. Good luck again.

    i can do the 2 most common varriations with my HWW but that's only if you consider half a flop, should be getting a lyn on monday or tuesday (about time i got one XD)part of my reason was the hunch that the starbursts made too much friction. i'd mod the HWW but i'm afraid of having a useless yo-yo... and it took me a day or 2 to get it right, don't know if tht's quick, or slow...
