There are two different ways that you can yoyo.
The first is “RESPONSIVE”
This is good for beginners because it is easy to retrieve the yoyo.
This is what you saw Andre doing in the video.
As you get better, you’ll want an “UNRESPONSIVE” yoyo.
This is useful for doing whips and more advanced tricks. The only problem is, you need to learn how to bind.
Almost all advance yoyoers use unresponsive yoyos(except in 3A). If you want to learn to bring one up with one hand…
Simply do a laceration but do not catch the string.
As you use the yoyo more, it will become less and less responsive. You can put some YYJ thick lube on your yoyo. This will make it more responsive. However, you will be limited with the tricks you can do.
If you want some Thick Lube…
