Those were Loop 360s. Maybe an Oracle. I didn’t know Brain Twister was around then. I like the loop he ended it with. Cool to see clips of this.

Hey guys! I’m Vihaan, but I sometimes go by Kevin. I’m a 15 year old yoyoer out in central North Carolina. I’ve been yoyoing for almost 2 years now, and I finally thought it was time form me to get into the forums. I’m an aspiring 1a, 4a, and soon to be 2a yoyoer, and I really hope to have good time here in the forums. Thanks!

Well, to start, my favorite Yoyo is the YoYoFactory Shutter Wide Angle, my favorite trick is the Triple on Trapeze Release, (5A) My favorite player is Gentry Stein, and I found this place one day by, looking on, and my dad (who also is into yoyoing) told me about this amazing website!

I have been lurking for a little while now, finally decided to make an account and introduce myself. My name is Quentin, and I just recently got back into playing with yo-yos. Back about twenty years ago they were a fad in school, everybody had one, I never got very good doing only the basic around the world, walk the dog, tricks like that. Well now they are making resurgence in my children’s elementary school, I ordered them all their own yoyo’s and they were quickly getting frustrated trying to learn tricks out of the Duncan hand book. I have since ordered myself the dv888 and now as a family we are all trying to learn together watching Yoyo expert videos and playing together, we all struggle with even the basics still lol, but it’s a fun learning experience and gives us all a healthy activity to do together.


Lurking? Spy! :haha:

(ChrisFrancz) #6108

Welcome. I have that Duncan trick book too. It makes difficult tricks seems incredibly simple. I did not get much use out of it. Only after I learned some of the tricks from other sources was I able to decipher the Duncan trick book illustrations.

Welcome! I love how this is a family endeavor for you, it’s a great way to pass the time and build confidence!

(Quentin Chapman ) #6110

Yeah those trick illustrations are very vague, thankfully yoyo expert has some great videos and making it substantially easier to figure out. Thanks for the welcome

(Quentin Chapman ) #6111

Thanks for the welcome John, my daughter is ten, she’s my eldest and seems to pick up a lot of it easier than us men in the house, lol, she is a natural at almost everything she does. But me and my boys are still having lots of fun with it and hopefully will start making progress as the weeks go by

(ChrisFrancz) #6112

What yoyos are your children learning on?

(Quentin Chapman ) #6113

My daughter has a YYF Replay and both of my boys have a YYF one
