Could you add slack tricks to the advanced division. (Suicide, laceration, Brent stole, wrist whip)


#4

Slack tricks would be a great addition to the contest next year. I think I’ll stay with the current trick list for this year. There are some players who have been working off the rules/trick list since last December.


(Amplified) #5

So there aren’t separate divisions this year? If there were you could simply filter beginners from intermediates/advanced players, the slack problem is alleviated.


#6

The rules and divisions are in place for this year. I wouldn’t want to switch anything out for throwers who have been going off the existing rules a month and a half before the contest. I would like to see slack tricks in the future. It would be great to have a pre-contest slack trick showcase this year. I have been experimenting with Cold Fusion Slack.

How do you feel about their yoyos? (MagicYoyo)


#11

On Wednesday I worked an event and in my case were yo-yos from the following sponsoring companies: Duncan (Dragonfly/ProFly/ProYo Superman/ProYo Standard/Wheel/Echo original), Yomega (Glide pair), MagicYoYo (N8/N12/D5/N5 Desperado/N6/T5), and the YoYoFactory (Ricochet/Speed Dial/North Star).

If I’m packing… I’m always packing one of these yo-yos. I enjoy using the yo-yos from all the sponsoring companies.

The other yo-yos that I enjoy throwing and also had with me during the event: Spintastics (Firefly/Tiger Shark), Tom Kuhn (Flying Camel/No Jive 3-in-1/Silver Bullet 2 #753 of the original 1990 batch), YoYoJam (Hitman original/Dark Magic II/Joseph Harris Unleashed), PlayMaxx (ProYo Original Bumblebee Team ProYo Arizona), Monarch (bearing metal butterfly from the Monarch company), Jack Russell (Fast Eddy Shooters), Generic Yo-Yos (4 of the best yo-yos I’ve found for two handed shoot the moon and bought years ago for only 75 cents a piece).

#13

Is there a freestyle division or just the tricks?


(Amplified) #14

Advanced division includes a 1 min freestyle portion. This comes after the trick ladder. You must be in the top 3 from the trick ladder to be a part of the freestyle portion.

(That’s how it went last year.)

Are you planning on coming?


#15

It is the same breakdown of having the top three players in the final. The final comes down to your best one minute freestyle and audience response factors into the overall winner.

The television spot (PSA) was dropped off at a local NBC affiliate and will start airing in the next few days. I’m trying to get the word out to as many throwers as possible so feel free to share the link PSA http://youtu.be/H_LiwwW77H4.
