How did you find Yoyoexpert?


#1

Tell us your story on how you found Yoyoexpert! And why you wanted to join the forums…

I was referred by a friend, and then made a account to keep in touch with him.


#2

haha, my bad.

I don’t remember how I found it. Stumbled upon it back when YYN was booming.


#3

Started throwing found this site for tuts. They were great decided to join the forums to see whats what.


#4

This.


#5

I’d say the tutorials are what brought a lot of people here.


#6

Yep. But not me, my friends said I should buy from Yoyoexpert, not amazon.

No offense amazon!!


(SR) #7

5 years ago I was referred to the store by a friend when I was looking to buy a yoyo. I joined the forum a little while after that and I’ve been here ever since.


#8

I wanted to get better at Yoyoing so I google “Yoyo” so I clicked on YYE and found the tutorials and Yoyo store because I also wanted an unresponsive Yoyo at the time for me to advance in yo-yoing. Then I found the forums so I made an account not knowing what it was or how to use it until I got on again and actually tried using it.


#9

I ordered a PGM from amazon, but they shipped me a Duncan wheels. I returned it. So instead, I got a dv888 from YYE. Been hooked since!


#10

Ernie with General-Yo hooked me up with the referral to andré and yoyoe I bought a majesty from him and the rest is history. Without Ernie’s recommendation I don’t know of I’d have made it here.


#11

Google


#12

Yeah… I didn’t join the forum for weeks (months?) after I started buying and learning from YYE. (I started yoyoing because I was given a yoyo as a ‘filler’ gift, hooked ever since)
I didn’t join right away because I didn’t even know what a forum was! But I joined out of curiosity… then joined the mafia… What can I say… Lol


#13

I was watching yo-yo contest videos on Youtube. I decided to google every company name I saw in the background (the sponsors). I went to YoyoExpert.com. A few weeks later, I discovered this was Andre’s site.


#14

Tutorials. Then I bought a couple things that weren’t in stock on YYN. Then a few years later YYN went down and this was the place to be.


#15

I googled “yoyo tricks” and found André’s great tutorials and I got hooked:)


#16

I started with the store, I figured out they had better prices than the site I was using previously. Then I moved on to the tutorials. After that I looked around the forum for a while, and finally got an account.


#17

Was looking around to buy my first advanced yo-yo’s (all I had was a velocity and freehand 2) for my B-day, came across this and YYN, YoYoExpert’s shipping was cheaper so I decided to stay here. :wink:


#18

I honestly don’t recall how I first came across this website, via a Google search for yo-yo sites I suppose. I do recall my immediate appreciation for the comprehensive tutorials I found here. I wanted that yo-yo André was throwing straightaway so I bought a Dark Magic as I’m sure many of us did. I do recall I was here a while before registering on the forums.

This much I recall for certain, once I had landed here I never had much desire to look for any other. I have never found anything that even comes close. Almost my entire collection of high-end throws was purchased here, total receipts for which would be in the neighborhood of $2000.00 (I must be completely out of my mind!) Whenever I get any inclination from anyone they might have an interest in exploring this hobby I always advise they start by visiting yoyoexpert.com first.
