4A


#1
    Ok, I haven't done any big projects for YYE and I feel i should do something (This is pretty lame), So I love 4A so this will be my complete guide to Off-String  ;D 

What is Off-String or 4A

4A is a style of play where the yoyo is NOT connected to the string while the loop is still on your finger. This is a very popular style of play and can wow any watchers with the easiest of tricks.

The YoYo
The yoyo for 4A can be almost any normal yoyo. Most OffString yoyos are butterfly shape so that it is easier to land on the string (Later be explained). The gap should be large so that you do not get knots (The string gets caught and wont come off) or you can’t exacute a trick when you might go double on or whipping the string, but on the otherhand it can’t be too big because it may take several binds to return to your hand.\

Pictures of some:

I dont think you should embed the tricks. It would be less confusing that way.


#5

I want to show the trick and how to do them.

But it still proves the same purpose. They will only look at it if they need to. Plus, it would look neater, and cleaner, therefore more professional.
