Hey guys, this is a trick I'm trying to learn. I've looked at several different tutorials, including Vguitars' and Andre Boulays, but it seems I just can't get the loop nice and big so i can catch it. String tension isn't a problem, the string doesn't twist up, it just doesn't open up nice and big. Is there some way of twisting my finger or something that I'm not doing? Help plz?

Practice different releases. You can throw the yoyo more upwards or wide across your body for different reactions.
Also as the yoyo passes over your throw hand, pull your throw hand ever so slightly away from your body. This can help to open up that loop.

All I can think of that helped me was pull a TINY bit with your throwhand to open up the loop a bit more. Aside from that I'm really no help.

Try looping the string around more than one finger when landing the trapeze. It may help you get the feel for it.

Thanks guys, the "two-finger" tip and slightly pulling with my throwhand really help, and the trick's coming along much nicer, thanks :)Popped my mod cherry!

Your response type may also help. Silicone and starburst seem to open up the loops best, but you can do it on practically anything once you've got it down.
Also, I find the best time to release is about the 5-4'o clock position (imagine a clock face over your hands). That's right about when the yo-yo is just starting to pass your throwhand from the underside. I'm sure different people are more comfortable at different angles but that seems to be the most common point of release for most. Once you get it though it'll definitely be a main move in your repertoire! Lots of fun.Feedback: http://www.theyo.com/yoyo/showthread...647#post589647

The more slack you have on the string throughout the strick will give you a bigger hole. If you're making the yoyo pull to hard on the string as it's going around you won't have much of a loop to work with. If you follow the yoyo slightly with your throw hand you will create extra slack and create a bigger loop. Treat it more like a toss than a throw if that makes any sense... that's all the advice I have.Favorite Yoyos: Genesis, Peak, Lyn Fury
