A combo I've been working on.


#1

Here’s a video of the combo I’ve been working on. Enjoy.


#2

You can pack a whole lot of good stuff into 26 seconds! real nice.


#3

Thanks. I realized when I finished that if I get another combo that long, I could do a 1 minute prelim routine at a contest. I don’t think I’d go far with the level I’m at, but it would still be fun.


#4

As long as you are having fun and progressing in your talent nothing else matters.


#5

not too shabby. How long have you been throwing for?


#6

Right. I kind of got in a slump and didn’t learn anything new for a while, but got on myself and learned a couple slack tricks recently. I put a lot of what I know at this point into this combo. Should’ve put a couple grinds in the video too, now that I think about it.

~8 months.


#7

oh okay, that’s really good for only 8 months actually.


#8

Really? I felt like I was behind the curve to be honest. I appreciate the support.


#9

no problem, and I know what you mean. Ive been throwing for about 8 years on and off, and every time I get back into it, I regret having stopped.

I yo-yoed when I was a kid and got out of it do to the lack of a yoyo community anywhere near me and having no friends that were yoyoers. I bought a velocity this year (about 15 years later) and have hardly skipped a beat since. I then got the Yomega Brain, Fireball, Raider and Maverick (moved a long way forward with that Maverick). I got a Ghost Edition DMII for my birthday in March from my girlfriend. Have a shutter which is actually sold and will be in the mail Monday (though I will eventually replace it), a cypher, a nickel CafeRacer (had a custom Cafe racer that I traded away a few weeks ago), and have a Horizon headed my way.

I like the progress I’ve made, but I’ve seen a lot of people’s videos that are way better than I with just a little more experience.

very nice choice of yoyos. just remember that practice makes perfect. It sounds cliche, but its true. Literally every single time you do a trick you get just a little bit smoother at doing it, until eventually it’s smooth as butter. trick progression I feel isn’t as important as getting the tricks you know down packed.
