5a starter....


#1

So I’m getting a new throw tomorrow. It’s a YYJ Classic. Just wondering were the best place to start will be? Any help would be great


#2

The first few tricks here on YYE are really helpful and useful for starting 5a.

start here and u will stay there for long :stuck_out_tongue:

I got a Yoyojam Classic today because I thought I would end up doing 5a on it, but it hurts my hand to much.

I ended up just using my PSG instead.

Also, go on youtube. Go to Miguel Correa’s Channel. He has the best 5a tutorials ever.


#5

I got my classic today and it is a lil awkward for sure. But I’m staring to get the hang of it. Just have to watch more vids.


#6

I have a classic and i modded it which you can ask me how to its quite easy and cheap and i used it for 5a but i stopped using it because i had trouble getting good throws in because it was too big so i took my yyf velocity which is a smaller throw for cheap and im using that its easier to get a good throw in but i love my modded classic for 1a


#7

How did you mod the classic???


#8

You can’t “Mod” it.

You can simply upgrade the inferior internals such as:

Change out the Half Bearing for a Wider Bearing
Change the Black O-rings for CBC Pads.


#9

Will the classic accept silicone like monkey snot


#10

Yep Monkey Snot works great.

But you have to change the bearing if you want unresponsive play.


#11

Yea I changed the bearing to a flat speed bearing I had…also changed to response to the spare pads that came with my dv888 but I prefer monkey snot over pads any day of the week.


#12

Yep you’re set to go.

Sounds good to me
