2 Rope Takate Kote (Wrap Twice) [Level 2]

Kink Academy Video

Factors affecting first wrap tension:

  • Just pull really hard to center: top left wrap ends up a bit tighter
    • Why? Even if you even out, right wrap has mechanical advantage
    • Tighten right more to balance, and can even out post-lock, but still tight
    • If still uneven, can actually pull through lock between sides to adjust top/bottom balance
    • Can start with top wrap looser, but not usually enough to equalize
  • Alternate extreme: don't pull at all, put knot in current-tension spot then rotate
    • Then stem gets crazy loose
  • Can reduce loose stem effect by pulling wraps down; but shorter stem
  • Starting with wrists low gives you the slack you need without tightening or rotating
    • Variation: start with column tie out of position
  • Rotating a little before locking lets you get the rest of the way by tightening the loose stem
    • Sometimes you can get (some) rotation just by yanking (not reliable)
    • If you pinch wraps together, can keep even and encourage to rotate
    • It tends to settle back a little after rotating this way; easy to not quite hit center
    • Some may mix in a bit of slack from wrist position, tension difference, etc.
    • Every body also compresses different amount -- this is why this is so hard!
