different counterweights ?


#1

I have a few dice I use for 5a but am bored with them… What other common items could I use as a counterweight?


#2

a bouncy ball


#3

believe it or not, you can use a lego guy if you can get the string through his legs, like this…
and yes, that is a black ninja that goes great with a black yoyo ;D ;D ;D

I’ve used alot of homemade stuff but my favorite so far seems to be duncan dice. I dont care too much for the bouncy balls, and the duncan heads are alright…

My favorite counterweight is probably the Yoyofactory Spin-Top button, that you can purchase at contests. I also really like the Duncan Die though. But I like how the Spin-Top button is a white or translucent red, and is round and weighs less or more, I don’t know. I also really like the Spin-Top button better because it’s from Yoyofactory. :o 8) ::slight_smile: :slight_smile:

that lego guy is an interesting idea…lol

My friend used like a LEGO wheel as a counterweight before, but it was really horrible. :stuck_out_tongue:

I used to use a caribiner clip and it was ok for the light yo-yos like a speed maker.
