I'm addicted to fingerspins….


(major_seventh) #1

So today I got about a 20 second fingerspin on both the Format:C and the T1. How?

By landing in the little dimple area where the axle is (like the Valor type thing).

Has anyone else done this? lol :smiley:

Yep, done it on my Valor and benchmark with ULs. Haven’t tried it with my Markmont Classic yet, I’ll have to give that a shot later

I can see how it would get addicting. It’s sort of like kendama. I personally get really annoyed at the fingerspin thing, and I never try it.


#5

Going to try that immediately with my T1 right now. Will update after testing.

Just spent 10-15 minutes with my T1 trying it out. I only landed it cleanly 3 times but it fell off each time. Do you have a method for doing this?

I just do a front style side throw and hop it up (but not too high). You kinda just have to commit I guess. I have hardly any fingernail atm FYI.


#7

Are you doing a fingerspin or a backflip? :smiley:


({RTD} alecto) #8

when i landed my first one it was epic.

lol ikr, I’ve been street skating so much these days I use that word a lot


#10

I had a month-long phase where I only used my Elysian for fingerspins. getting to actually know it know, so comfortable for a competition shape.

I can’t land on the through-hole for the life of me. Heck, I can’t even land the Prestige dimple.

But I like doing “ghetto matador” with those kinds of yoyos. :wink:


#12

ghetto matador eh? please elaborate:)


(major_seventh) #13

I think he means using your fingernails and rip starting the yoyo like you would do normal matador except using the inserts.

^^ Yup. I didn’t coin “ghetto matador”… can’t remember who did, but I dig it. :slight_smile:
