2A Tuesdays ( a Looping Thread)

Definitely need to link Shu’s AGT performance here;

Here is a break down of some of Shu’s tricks from that performance, which is interesting from a 2A perspective. Syncopated dueling forward passes are one of my go to moves.

720s are hard to beat, my green is an Evan and not currently half swapped for trying to keep track of Tanglers

Glad to see others getting an early start on this 2A Tuesday, very motivating.

I’m just getting in to 2a (if you don’t count the 60’s) and spent over two hours reading/watching through this thread this weekend. A 2a search doesn’t turn up much but it does get you here.

I was looking at OWYYC 2a 2021 results and Loop ups are popular there. Got some on yoyo day. They’re a nice change of pace.

Did you adjust your loop ups with the adjusting feature that they have? How would you rate this feature? Was it easy to adjust? I’m interested in getting Loop Ups

It was pretty easy to adjust with a 6mm socket wrench. It comes with the suction cup to remove the caps. They don’t slip too much unless they collide. One of the first ones I got was cracked on the part that holds the nuts, like it was over-tightened, which made it impossible (hard?) to adjust and it wouldn’t sleep, but I got another one since the second one worked fine. I think it’s a pretty nice feature. They’re kind of expensive for 2A yoyos but I like how they’re playing right right now. They’re still new to me so, I don’t know what problems they might have in the future like slipping, or durability.

I ordered a pair of these yesterday. Same price as a 720 and comes with four spacers. Is there a downside I missed?

It’s a steep and challenging road IMO this 2A but I’m chippng away at it… getting the hang of 2 handed inside/ outside loops. Working on warp drives and the 3 leaf covers now…

How can 2A not be ambidextrous, what do you mean by that?
Super impressive tricks by the way!!

2a players arm wrap by making the sleeping yoyo on their strong hand manipulate the string on the wrist on their weak hand. This leads to your strong hand having a different skill set than your weak hand. Making 2a at the highest level be fundamentally asynchronous.

Note in the video I am draping the string on either my weak wrist and strong wrist. Essentially had to relearn my 2a from the ground up switching the skillsets of both my hands to pull this off. (Secretly been doing that in training for past 8 years)

Also thanks!

Nicely done. We are at about the same place. How often do you throw?

I was replying to AKYOYOMIKE but as far as time I started throwing in 1968.
