good info, i may attach it to my shu-ta for now - it is a stronger metal and more likely to ding my house than get dinged - right now i am just working on getting comfy with the throw and catch, and maybe the double trapeze and tossing the counterweight - nothing fancy i am likely to drop yet.
soon i plan on ordering that yye starter set that comes with 2 1080s for looping and a plastic 1a yoyo. I will likely use that plastic one for the real 5a stuff.
right now i am using the duncan counterweight set - i am using the rubber ball. pretty comfy when i miss it, and doesn’t bang into the yoyo.
as always, thanks for the input!
