Fixed Axle Friday Throws


#22

The OUT pocket love in oak is the heaviest of my 5 fixies. Plays amazing. Feels premium.

This is how I feel about the Duncan Butterfly. Throwing it for a while makes me wish for wood again.

I’m working at using a strong plastic axle in a plastic fixed axle yoyo right now. So far, it seems to be working pretty well. You just need the right kind of plastic.

Pocket Love’s. OG and new run.

What’s the weight? It’s not mentioned in the shop here. Probably 53g or less?


#27

My OUT walnut Cheap Thrills weighs in at 45g. This is my lightest yo, but it is also one of my best and has better spin times than my 53g Hildy Bro.

Cool. After playing 66-68g throws when I got a Legend it felt like a cotton ball attached to a string. I am not skilled enough yet to throw such lightness.


#30

Not sure about the weights, but the oak is much heavier than the walnut. I’d say the oak one is as heavy or heavier than the deep state. Walnut one is defiantly lighter than the deep state.

Walnut < maple < oak in terms of weight.


#32

Love this Bloody Pocket Love made of bloodwood. This is what you call a work of art. It just feels like you have something really nice in your hand when you’re holding it.

This week I’m throwing a mid 2000s TK 3 and 1 Purgatory edition, as Ski Purgatory opens for the season tomorrow. This one weights a few grams more and is a little larger in diameter then the SF and BC versions of the 80s and 90s. Still a smooth wooden yo.


#34

Always really liked that edition, never saw one at a price I wanted to pay. Would probably mean more to me if I ever got to ride Purgatory.

Also jealous that your mountain is open. We’ve got weeks at least. Maybe more. I’m not optimistic. Snow level is way up.


#35

Well, you can’t throw that one, because it belongs to me, and that’s what I’m throwing!


(Spinworthy Glen) #36

Haha. I just used that photo as an example of the Harbinger I’m throwing.


#37

It’s gotten darker…


(Spinworthy Glen) #38

Oooh… Hand oil.


#39

That’s pretty much a Profly, which is nice…


#40

That makes sense, as it’s been in my hand a lot!


#41

Fresh Proflys are hard to come by these days.
