2A Tuesdays ( a Looping Thread)


One axle travelled from a green half to an orange half. Now both orange halfs have an axle and whatever combination I do I always have an orange green half swap😆.

I took my broken Loop 720 and used one half of it to do another half swap. It works.
Does anyone else still loop?

You can try to learn how to hop the fence or how to milk the cow. Those loops go straight down, maybe it won’t scare people haha. I can’t believe you attempted to do 2A in such tight spaces like in a subway🤣 crazy lol

Update from that post 2 years ago i can hop the fence in both hands pretty well, but not at the same time, I’ll even loop in the train (just not in anyone’s direction). My control is much better with practice. I have no fear to throw anything in the train these days, i even play some very basic 5A. Usually in the subway everything is well received… the LIRR is a diffrent story.

@anon14765792 I’ve been following your 2a progress and your an inspiration.

Thank you so much!!:blush:

Hey everyone sorry I posted this today on a Wednesday I know it’s supposed to be Tuesday :smirk: but I recently ordered two oracles And just started playing 2a not to long ago and man looping is harder than I thought :joy: took me a while to realize that :expressionless::sweat_smile: but I wanted to be a part of this thread and love this community’s creativity. so please bear with me while I ask some questions and thank you all on my progression through 2a thanks :+1:t2::wink:

If that was to complicated to understand let me just abbreviate it for you…
( I started playing 2a for the first time and need lots of practice :sweat_smile::grin:)

Awesome! I’m glad to hear you want to learn 2A. And you can post in this thread whenever you want, it doesn’t have to be Tuesdays only. It’s called 2A Tuesdays because Exmime challenged himself to focus on looping every Tuesday but I think it’s ok to discuss 2A on other days too.

Yeah it’s all about the practice, you got this

Thanks Marco !!! that’s very reassuring and I will try my best :grin: as long as I don’t go unconscious I’m good :sweat_smile::joy:
And by the way I really enjoy you and everyone else’s videos that you all post they are very innovative and are very cool to watch :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes: keep up the good work everyone :+1:t2:

Yeah feel free to post in this thread when and what ever about 2A. 2A is hard and a grind and can be frustrating. I myself have fallen off the 2A Tuesday wagon, but I’m glad people are using it as a way to motivate and stay motivated as that was the initial intent. Lots of good links and set up stories here, I’ll probably get my loopers out here after typing. Have fun and YoYo how you like.

Those loopers look so sleek without the print on

Hello everyone I was thinking of expanding my horizons when it comes to 2a I currently own two oracles and I’m starting to get the rhythm down so I kinda wanted to try out other looping yo-yos that require less maintenance and don’t have to buy spare parts :sweat_smile: I was eyeing on the Duncan hornet and loop 720s which one would you prefer more when it comes down to consistency and performance ??

I love the Hornet, but the Loop720 wins on consistency and performance.

I have both the Hornets and the 720s. The 720s are a little faster and more consistent, and that’s probably why they are the currented standard when it comes to 2A.

How does the hornet play in comparison ??
But Iike you said the loop 720s play a little bit better I’ll look into that thanks :+1:t2::wink:

There are a lot of set up and reviews in this thread. You can use the Ctrl-F function and search Hornet. The Hornets do play slower which isn’t a bad thing when trying to maintain control, they also have a comfortable profile as well and have a more modified shape with the recessed caps.

I got my Loop2020s today and they play so different compared to my Loop720s. They are so responsive and aggressive.

Getting my 2A on, 720s with one Blue and one Red spacer and some fresh 1st Class Kitty Regulars. Milking the Cow and doing a few hundred inside/outside reps to work out that muscle memory
