Engine Yoyo Trick
Learn the Offstring trick known as the Engine.
Engine Yoyo TrickIn this video I am going to teach you the Engine and it looks like this:
To start the trick, you are going to perform a ring by putting the other end of the string to your throwhand. Once you get here you are going to put your non throwhand index finger to the farthest string away from your body. From here, you are going to curl your finger outwards and around. You are going to roll the yoyo backwards onto the string closest to your body. Once you are here, you are going to roll the yoyo forward onto the top string. The yoyo will roll around the front and end up on the same position where we started. You can repeat the motion as many times as you want. To dismount this trick, instead of hitting the top string, you are going to miss it. From there you are just going to curl your finger and you are back to your ring mount.
If you are having trouble with the yoyo snagging, we recommend thinner strings. This will lessen the friction in the gap of the yoyo. Also you want the yoyo to keep on moving continuously because if it is too slow, or it sits too long on the string, there is a higher chance of it snagging on you. Once you master the trick, you can also do it in reverse. And that is how you do the Engine.
