Does anyone else like doing HARDCORE PINWHEELS?!


Because honestly? I love hardcore pinwheels. I really really do.

now that you’ve mastered your pinwheel, it’s time to start making them hardcore :rofl:

I low-key hate using pinwheels. It makes me low-key cringe when somemone takes more than 2 pin-wheels before a trick.

They’ll probably say “it’s to control the velocity of the incoming yoyo”… but if you need to, just do one.


My new year’s resolution for 2019 is to PINWHEEL TWICE AS HARDCORE AS I DID IN 2018 :metal: :skull: :metal:

Hardcore? That ain’t hardcore. Speedos in sub zero weather, that’s hardcore. I don’t do hardcore yoyoing brrrrrrrr. :snowflake::snowman_with_snow::snowflake:

I just do one, but sometimes it may be two when it comes to choreography for a rountine

My resolution is to not do pinwheels. 1 is too many


You are clearly an evil person who plots against the freedom and justice of pinwheels for all

I like pecan pinwheels… Does that count?

There is a Norwegian black metal band called Hardcore Pinwheels. I guess that’s where you got that top one from.


Learned pinwheels today, man does it mess up your tension.


You know when you use a 5A yoyo and the string around the bearing becomes super loose? (if you don’t have a bearing cw) DO PINWHEELS

Pinwheels help tighten the string around the bearing if the string is too loose there. Also when putting on a string it is good to start with pinwheels since you untwisted the end of the string before putting it on the yoyo.


That was the most amazing tutorial I’ve ever seen. :laughing:

Makes me wanna pinwheel so hard my face melts :exploding_head:

I tried it…
RIP finger

I usually do just the one, but if I miss the string altogether I’m not above turning that into a pinwheel.

This made my day! Thanks, @codinghorror. And btw those graphics you made are glorious.


Well thanks! I didn’t make them per se, I just searched for black metal font pages …
