2A Tuesdays

Going to start this thread to help motivate me to play more 2A, and I plan to do at least 200 loops every Tuesday during 2020. This last year I did a full year of Fixed Axle Fridays and it greatly improves my 1A 100 fold and keep my fundamentals sharp along with modern responsive is a lot of fun. I also enjoyed 5A May where my 5A improved along with my 1A in discovering new concepts. So I’m encouraging the YYEF to join me on this journey of 2A Tuesdays.

So today I’m throwing 720s a Shu and Evan 1/2 swap with Yomega Raider strings at 75mm and one red YYF Japan spacer and one Yomega Raider spacer. Just did 100 alternating inside/outside loops left and right handed each. When I was finished my string was perfectly neutral, a fun 2A skill building exercise I find.

Happy 2A Tuesday 2020

I feel like this should work great in bringing you 2A higher skill level

I just started 2a myself. Never tried lefty before I got a pair of loopers. Turns out I am better at looping with my left. I can only get 4 loops while doing both hands though. It starts getting wonky on me. Definitely need some more practice.

This is a great idea. I actually find that I play a lot more when I’m carrying a yoyo I can loop. I know, I know; only one isn’t 2A. But I can just grab my throw and toss some loops while I’m walking down the hall at work, out in the parking lot; heck, even while I’m just having a casual conversation. I’ve gotten a ton of one handed looping practice lately doing this.

I guess I just need to start carrying two of 'em!

2A this 2A Tuesdays, I’m back at it on 720s, but YYE green bulk poly at 75mm. Still playing with counting and controlling string tension with alternating loops. 120 consecutive loops between inside loops and hopping the fence left and right handed. I’m doing intervals of 30 fence hops to 60 inside loops and bringing tension back to neutral with another 30 fence hops. 2A is definitely a grind, and stamina is what requires the work. 4 reps for total of 960 loops for this exercise.

What do you guys think about the 1080s? I have them and they seem pretty light.

Just picked these up from my local toy store for fun, and boy are they! Very smooth spinning, and they feel great in the hands. I gotta admit though, they’re pretty hard to loop with. I have a much easier time of it with my old Duncan Speed Beetle.

i picked up a Duncan Imperial, i know! it’s not the best thing to loop with, but i managed. i’ve never looped before, just learning now, so i haven’t gotten to a point where i can do like 200+ loops, but i got 20 loops, it was super fun.

If you just started learning to loop and you’ve accomplished 20 with an imperial - you are doing very good and should think about maybe investing in a pair of 720’s!!!

Maybe you shouldn’t be so fast to jump 2A conclusion.
