Just wanna say hi.
I haven’t picked up a yoyo since about 1994 when I went to Uni…then my wife gives me a cheap promo one with a fixed axle 4 days ago…that I messed around with for a day or so. I still had it…(lol)…can do all the sick tricks I used to know…the very impressive ones like, walk the dog, rock the baby and around the world.
So I decided to check out youtube to find more tricks. Turns out yoyos have evolved since 1994…substantially!!! I am blown away!
I HAD to check out the new hardware.
I bought the following…they are all on order. Before I found this site I got a Duncan freehand zero, then decided I needed an imperial so grabbed a Duncan Dragonfly. I also snagged a good deal with 14 yoyos and a case on ebay…(2 duncans (imperials) and 3 yomegas (brain, fireball and saberwing). So I should be good to start out.
After watching all the tuts here (/hands Andre a cold beer //thanks man), I HAD to get a Dark Magic…those suckers are hard to find, but I finally found a site that wasnt “out of stock”…wanted Orange but Dark Blue looked cool, and colour is secondary to me.
Needless to say I am pretty pumped, and my wife is pretty sick of hearing the word yoyo…thats just my quick story of going all-in in 4 days. haha.
BTW, if anyone has computer or IT questions…just let me know…I am more than willing to help. I think I am going to start selling yoyos at my store as well, I live in a town of 8k and couldnt find one trans axle or a ballbearing yoyo in 2 towns (/sad).
Again, thanks to Andre for the videos here…well done and easy as hell to follow. Thanks for the hard work, greatly appreciated by this beginner.
