r/Throwers, the yo-yoing community on Reddit, was torn apart this weekend by a huge controversy. Is Rock the Baby performed with the palm up, or palm down?
The debate started shortly after yotricks posted this tutorial. A flame war quickly broke out on Reddit, with many people chiming in on the “correct” way to do this classic picture trick. All of which is ridiculous… it’s palm down obviously.
