Grinds should be JD

2A def Shu Takada and 3A Hank Freeman for sure. Amazing throwers…I don’t particular like the whole “King Of Throw” idea, myself. I like to think of myself as the King…, in my own head…I don’t go around saying that I am the King to other people, though or proclaim any title other than “Pro”.


#6

There can’t really be a long of 1a. The amount of different styles makes it impossible. If you went objectively Hiroyuki wins by a decent margin considering the amount of times he has won worlds. Otherwise there is no measure that you could use to determine a “King”.


#7

You can’t put king of kendama, there are MUCH better players than chuck. The rest is all subjective. Fingerspins is obviously kohta, he invented them


#8

This ^

Shinji Saito has gotta be the king of 2A. I mean he’s the 8 time world champion…


#9

Shinji Saito is the best 2A player of all time. probably one of the best yoyoer of all time.


#10

This is all up to the person writing the replies. If you don’t like them, write down which ones you think. Some players like Gentry best, some like Zach best, but it is all up to the people themselves.


#11

The idea is that this is opinion. Put down what you wish. “King”, I am guessing, means the best.

I put down Paul Kerbel for 1A because, IN MY OPINION, he has the highest skill level of all yoyoers in that style.
