Good finger spin yoyos??


#1

So yeah, I really want to learn this trick, and I was wondering if you guys could suggest anything. My budget is low. (about $100).

Thanks!!


#2

Theory, horizon,shutter, movitation, most c3’s. Really anything is good. There are also a few new throws at YYE that are marketed as fingerspin throws. Don’t remember the names but the should be one of the latest releases.


#3

L5


#4

ET Elysian, C3 Mo-vitation


#5

Thanks. What about the one drop T1?
It has that little nub thing, so will that kill finger spinning possibilities?


#6

Anything where the cup/hub has a flat area in the middle will work great. My personal favourite is CLYW puffin 2 (more so than Elysian) it might be a bit out of your budget new (the next production run is being anodized right now) but they are around on the BST

No. Like I said, you can fingerspin on almost anything. If I can do it on a Classic, I’m pretty sure you can do it on a T1


#9

Thanks!!


#10

yoyojam theory it just won the fingerspin contest


#11

yeah but yoyo that can do a long finger spin is different than one that is good for doing tricks that involve transfers and such. (try landing on the theory dimple every time lol)


#12

Personally I’ve found the Horizon to be very good for both spins (String King managed a 1:31 for my contest using a Horizon) and transfers. Although you should be able to fingerspin on a lot of different yoyos, finding one that was designed for that specific purpose is always a good idea.

Horizon/Elysium/L5 are all great shouts.


#13

I just got to use my first elysian, and honestly I like it 1000x better than the horizon for fingerspins. It’s the best fingerspin yoyo I’ve ever used, and I could easily land right in the nub every time since the cup acts like a funnel and funnels your finger into the middle. I could easily get 40secs-1min fingerspins on it on a not even very hard throw. I would definitely recommend.


#14

The theory or anything with lateral caps is great for spin time and transfers. I’ll bet if logi had used a different yoyo that had the regular lateral caps he would have gotten a longer fingerspin time (regular lateral caps are better)


#15

Hehehe, yeah, the lateral caps are great for nice long spins, but for tricks, you’ll want a Horizon or a Elysium.


#16

Thanks. I’ve been trying to finger spin with my shutter, but it isn’t working very well.


#17

I have a shutter and an L5. The L5 is by far easier for me. Shutter: around 15 seconds. L5 well over a minute.

I am new at this, though.
