Go West Videos


The website compendium of tricks I am working on is… developing… so if you have a trick you invented, either PM me a link or post it here and I’ll add it.

Looks nice!
But what really irritates me.
How long the string is.
Like, why not shorten the setup, so that way it’s like normal string length?
It would look less awkward.

And right now.
As nice as the style is, it looks awkward at best


Oh… Okay I’ll do that then…


How short should I make it? Is already about an inch from my belly button.

(UmeNagisa) #5

Hmm, it just looks like struggling to reach that loop.
Probably belly button.
Maybe lower than usual

I guess it’s just the style?


Yeah, it’s a bit awkward to reach the loop. Doing a few hand wraps seems to smooth it out.

This looks like a style I might eventually get into, after getting my 4A game back on track!


Yeah, it’s like, 4A tricks and 1A tricks. A lot of tricks can be replicated in 4A. The only really techy offstring can be done originally in this style. But, anything that involves a twist of string around the axle is totally new.

Those old go west videos have some awesome tricks, it’s just so hard to see what’s going on.


My production of videos was delayed by a broken basement door, trapping my yoyos inside. Also, lunch. But, I’m working on a new one, showing all the different mounts.


My yoyos have been rescued!


I just don’t get the super long string. Since it’s already doubled-over as a loop, each half of the loop doesn’t need to be the length of a regular string, does it? For example, in 4A even though you “close the loop” for a number of moves (like around-the-arm barrel rolls) you don’t have a string that’s twice as long.

I Mayhave to get some short string, and try this now
brb xD


Its fun :slight_smile:

Part of it IS long string. Thats just the style

Ahh, we’ll I tried folding over a third of a kitty string, tying it
And threw in my Alpha Crash.
It feels weird to throw, and bind
But wow, this is fun.:slight_smile:
Now to find a way to make this more hardcore! XD

Freehand Sumo
Someone try that. Please


Try swililefying.

And nt doubling over, seperating and retying

(UmeNagisa) #17

I don’t have a swivel though.

And my setup is just a makeshift haha.
It is fun though!

The die I added made this style very interesting to play!
You guys should try it :slight_smile:

And I gotta find me some longer string for regular Sumo


Actually i shortened mine and its like 10000000000times easier haha :slight_smile:


Dude! u can do a few diabolo tricks with this!

Like some cradels and orbits!

(UmeNagisa) #20

So I was right!

And Diabolo?
Did you say diabolo?
Okay we’ll now I’m SUPER interested in this.
6 years into diabolo here.
