I just read this post. Immediately after doing so I took my near mint Optic Star No-Jive and walked the dog on concrete.
It felt good
Then I started doing some fun released throws where you take the loop off your finger and launch the yoyo in the air. I even did a 360 and had it land in my shirt ;D
Finally, maybe my new favorite trick (and I know many cabin tutorials, own combos, etc), is dog bite. I just did this by mistake a second ago and quickly learned how to master it.
Fun stuff…. Just thought I’d share. Thanks Ed.
