How to start horizontal


I’m becoming fairly proficient and normal play and I want to start messing around with horizontal. I have a lot of throws to choose from, but that’s not my question right now. My question is where do I start with horizontal? Are there any good tutorials out there for beginning this? I really don’t know how to start.

Next question: Code 1, Code 2, Dietz, Sas, Chief, Facade, Wrath, Viszilla, Sceptre, PGM, dv888, ywet, gfunk, overhaul?

The Chief and Code 2 were MADE for horizontal play. Get one of those, I assure you, you will not be disappointed.


I’ve got them both. I think I’ll start with the Code 2.
I really appreciate the help. Horizontal intimidates me.

Don’t be intimated. It’s actually super easy. Just make sure you’re throwing right.


What exactly is right? lol


Being new you at horizontal need a yoyo that has great direction changing ability. I would suggest the Chief or the code 1. And not to promote but the wrath is in the same light category and was built for it. Being new its a challenge to maintain heavier yoyos horizontal, It makes you feel like you have to rush and be fast when it almost the opposite.

Also, try throwing the yoyo at a tiny angle and do your normal tricks. Then, keep tilting your throw more and more and you will soon feel normal with horizontal.
