Hey guys, I haven’t played 5a in probably about a year. I’m looking to start up again mainly because I’m getting bored with 1a, and want to learn all the tricks on Miguel Correa’s site. I remember how to do tricks up to bee sting. I have a few questions.
what are the best counter weights? general knowledge about counter weights? tips? any links on where to buy interesting counter weights? cool items you use? I use the duncan bouncy balls, but I’m looking for something cooler.
what general stats or properties of a yoyo make it good for 5a? I used to use my protostar, but I’ve gotten a LOT of yoyos since I used to do 5a, and I’m wondering what else that I have is good. Now that I threw a couple of throws with a protostar, it feels really uncomfortable. Miguel Correa uses the genesis as far as I can tell. How good is it as a 5a throw?
at what point do you stop dropping? I’m still a tad nervous to use metals for 5a because I’m really a stickler for dings. Do you pros hit the floor often, or is it about the same as 1a? I’m not that good and I drop every now and then.
thanks in advance
