Common Yoyo/Yoyo Related Abbreviations


#1

Don’t know about you, but when I started yoyoing there were a lot of abbreviations that I didn’t understand. This thread should help all the new guys. If there’s something I missed, feel free to post it.

YYE-YoyoExpert
YYN-YoyoNation
YYF-YoyoFactory
YYJ-YoyoJam
FHZ-Freehand Zero
MFHZ-Metal Zero
Poly-Polyester
PGM-Plastic Grind Machine
DM-Dark Magic
CLYW-Caribou Lodge Yoyo Works

FH-Freehand
FH2-Freehand two
FH0-Alternate Freehand zero for abbreviation…
GM2-YoYoFactory Grind Machine 2
X-Con- This is weird because it used to be a yoyo, but then was discontinued and replaced with the X-ConVict, which is abbreviated X-Con
Aqua-Aquarious


#3

FHC-Freehand Cyclon


#4

Actually, I would say the abbreviation for X-ConVict would be either X-Vict or just Vict. X-Con definitely refers to a totally different yoyo

TH - throwhand (hand yoyo is attached to)
NTH - nonthrowhand (hand yoyo isn’t attached to)
