I live in an area pretty much devoid of other throwers. I know one guy at work, but he’s pretty uppity about how awesome his Xodus II and UFO catches are…now it’s not a competition or anything, but I can do more advanced stuff on my fixies than he can on his Xodus, so no reason to be uppity. Anyway, I tend to ignore people when they are arrogant like that.
But I digress, after about 11 months of playing, my best friend is finally wanting to pick the hobby back up. He yoyoed when he was a child, like I did, and actually taught me the front flip when I picked a yoyo back up at the beginning of the year. He’s finally buying a new throw and we actually ordered together yesterday. He’s getting a YYE Edition Yelets for his first modern throw and I picked up one of the RW Edition Just For Fun by OUT for my newest throw.
We even ordered him some YYE Edition poly strings to match the color way on his Yelets.
I guess the whole point is, I’ve finally got someone to throw with in the analog world of yoyoing! I know most of you probably don’t care, but I thought I’d share anyway.
