Pretty awesome…


(SR) #3

That was so awesome! One of the most creative styles yet!


#4

I hope you know I didn’t invent it, it was Jayyo.


(SR) #5

Oh well, it was still cool though. How did you keep the one half balanced?


(Johnny T) #6

Nice. You should try sticking your thumb and do a thumb grind on the half. :wink:


#7

He must of has his string tention pretty tight to hold it. :o


(Mitch) #8

Nope… Your all wrong… A yoyo is pretty much a gyroscope on a string!

Cool! I can almost see how Andre made up Thumb Grinds… :slight_smile:


(Mitch) #10

Yup, same concept


(Yo!It'sMatt) #11

Woah! That looks cool!
goes and tries 1/2A


#12

Not really, it was actually a bit loose, it just balances.


#13

Im guessing because of how fast its spinning. I do it all the time with my yoyos.
On accident of course.
Works best with metals. Haha


#14

Very likely the cause of it.

cough cough Ahem…

This mysterious effect is precession. In the general case, precession works like this: If you have a spinning gyroscope and you try to rotate its spin axis, the gyroscope will instead try to rotate about an axis at right angles to your force axis
