Man it really depends how you look at this. I am inspired by SO many good yoyoers and Its hard to land on a definant favorite.
I like John Chow so much because his tricks are so difficult and techy and yet look so amazing. When I watch Gentry or Augie throw tech, it doesnt leave the same impression on me as Johns tricks do. With that being said, I like other aspects of Augie and Gentry’s styles,and especially how they always try to have fun with it.
My personal favorite yoyoer now is John Ando. His tricks are really innovative and he can make simplistic things look amazing. He really pushes the boundrys of yoyo play.
Other inspirations as of late: Darrell Mitchell, Jensen, Kengo, and YOU!
