Welcome.

Your name suggests you are/were in the Air Force, is that the case?

Hello everyone. My name is Alexander and I picked up a yoyo again 3 months ago.
Threw a bit in my teens (90’s) then interest kind of tapered off for almost 20 years. My kids dug up my old throw (Yomega Saber Raider) and after throwing it for a couple of minutes thought "I bet I can get a better yoyo than this nowadays.

Lo and behold I could.

And it’s been a lot of fun ever since.

Outside of this hobby I spend a lot of time with my 5 kids. At work as a Software Test Analyst and in my other hobbies on the Judo mat and in my workshop as a knifemaker.

Current favorite throw is the MagicYoyo Focus in blue with rainbow rims.

Most recent trick I finally got (sort of) down after a few weeks of working on it is Magic Drop/Shockwave.

Looking forward to interacting with you guys.
Alexander

Thanks. Yeah I take a couple of minutes to try something new every day. Best way to progress in my experience. Plus offcourse…practise whenever I have the chance.

Hey guys! My name is Sam from New Jersey, and I recently just got back into throwing. I was into yoyoing back in middle / high school from around 2010-2015. A few days ago had a yoyo video pop up in my YouTube recommended and I thought i’d give this another go! Seems like a whole lot has changed in the last 7 years! Got any recommendations for a new throw? I really enjoyed the YYF Aviator 2 back in the day. Real excited to start posting on here and hopefully getting to know some of yall!

Welcome to the forums! Glad you stumbled across yoyos, it’s a fun and enriching hobby.

Wow, the Aviator 2, that’s a classic. Quite a few people want a re-release of that yoyo. I think you should try out the Neo Genesis, it seems pretty similar.
