Mixed Axle March!
Some noodling on the Wildwood I won.
How does it play? I have one I got from @AKYOYOMIKE, only thrown it a couple times.
That’s the fine Gent who I got mine from!!
At first i felt it was really to much bite and lost a few strings but then more I play it i find I’m liking it more but my moves need to be deliberate to avoid needing to cut out the string.
I won the trivia contest!
Super jeally of that green sparkle.
What’s the mod?
Rubber washers and silicone caps for weight and a walnut axle with a slightly thinner gap to help with looping.
Starting fixed Friday early tonight with the new-to-me purpleheart mystery fixie.
I was having a hard time tuning the response so I tried chapstick for the first time (if that’s what the stuff is that Zipline included with their fixie). I just did a little on the middle of the string and then manually wound it and started throwing. It’s working pretty well and the response is dialed to about where I like it. I might try this on another fixie that plays a little too unresponsive for my tastes…
I’m half inclined to think this may be a very early Spinworthy yoyo.
I don’t usually do it, but sometimes it helps.
Really? That’d be pretty cool since I’m a big fan of your work. I can’t find any obvious branding and it doesn’t really resemble any profile I’m familiar with. I had guessed that it was an earlier TMBR Irving but folks around here seem to think it’s not (and at this point I think I’m inclined to agree).
