I kid you not...

I can’t believe this… I got an el cheapo Magic Yoyo N9. I took the Z-stacks off and cleaned and lubed the bearing. Just the stock bearing. I got that sucker to spin for 11:21! Unreal.


#2

too unbelivable.
can you throw it again and make a video?
may be seller changed bearing…


#3

Whoa! Someone just got unscammed.

he cleaned and lubed it, so maybe the problem is that it comes heavily thick lubed.


#5

nice! but like most will say, we gotta see it to believe it. I think a video would be great. :slight_smile:

Couple years back I was in a bank during a robbery. When he told everyone to get down I refused, glaring into his eyes, hand on my limited edition yoyoexpert holster.
He turned towards me.
7 feet away, I could feel my death getting closer.
I scanned his body, looking for intentions and weaknesses.
Waiting.
Both of our hands on hips like a old cliche western.
Tumbleweed drifts by.
A faint ringing of someone’s phone went off and it all went in slow motion.
Both hands shot up.
What he didn’t know is I already had a finger loop tied.
Throwing my hand forward with all my might, I felt a piercing pain in my shoulder, throwing my left side back. Shot.
Sweat dripping down my face.
Yoyo midair, shining like a Farris wheel, reflecting colors from the alarm lights around us.
Losing balance.
Yoyo heading towards his gun.
His face in disgust, terrified.
Clink*
Yoyo bounced off his gun and spun out to my side, swaying back in forth in silence.
Gun still in hand.
We both stand there confused.
I farted.
Police tackle robber.

Sorry, lost the video proof.

Whaaaat the…


#8

damn, I was waiting to see the bank vid! lol


#9

why you don’t write a novel based on true stories?! :wink:


#10

Do any of you guys really want to sit there and watch a video of a yoyo spinning for 11 minutes? I’d rather watch a good win/fail compilation myself.


#11

Uh no. I’ve watched long sleepers in person at contests, and that’s not interesting either other than the initial throw where there’s always the possibility of string breakage and carnage :wink:


#12

You don’t have to watch the whole thing lol just a little for the proof that we really need just to prove you’re not lying (like, yeah, that’s likely)


#13

Timing how long a yoyo sleeps is silly.


#14

11min is entirely feasible. Can’t we just be excited that someone got more than they bargained for?


#15

Well if you’re not going to watch the whole thing, I can sleep a yo-yo for an hour! Just watch the beginning and end, ignore the stuff in the middle…honestly, it’s not worth watching. Give me an hour to fake record it.


#16

LOL. I couldn’t really believe it myself. I wish afterward that I had videoed it. Anyway, I assure you I’m not lying, I honestly wouldn’t bother writing a post about it if I was.

I have no words…
