The trick-set for these trick tutorials was thought up by 2011 World Yo-Yo Champion, Marcus Koh, and the elements in these short tricks are still used by Marcus in his contest freestyles.
For the tenth trick in the Trick Tutorials line-up, we have a trick that is simple in concept, but a little more difficult to execute. Just like the other tricks before it, the Undermount Whip is a great entry to a long freestyle-esque combo. Performing this whip allows the player to get into this mount quickly and move into his/her combos fast. This trick has been used by Marcus regularly as an entry to his speedy combos. It may be a very subtle maneuver, but getting it right takes practice!
When learning this trick, the important thing to note is to keep your hands slightly closer together when performing the whip so that the string slack stays long. At first this trick may be tough to hit, but watch and study the video in slo-mo to understand how the yo-yo moves as the trick comes around to be whipped in. Once you get the motion of the yo-yo and the string right, the rest should be easy.
If you have any questions, you can hit us up on Facebook, Instagram, drop us an email, or come down and ask us (or the Throw Revolution team) on how to perfect this trick!
Have fun practicing, and keep spinning!
