Hey all! So people often say things about yo-yos, they’re smooth, they’re floaty, they’re fast, I like to say that some of them are gooey or solid. I’m also not exactly sure what floaty means.
I would love to create a comprehensive list of these traits, with definitions of each one and what creates each one.
Let’s start with the ones I feel I can define mostly :):
When a yo-yo has very little to no vibe. Yo-yos sometimes have vibe at the very beginning of the throw because of a wide gap and string decentralization. And is created from the yo-yo halves being machined perfectly round and fitting together perfectly straight. It however does not imply the quality of the yo-yo.
The opposite, vibe.
When the yo-yo has a slight vibration even after the initial vibe that sometimes happens at the beginning of a throw. It is created by the yo-yo halves not being exactly round and/or the two halve not fitting together perfectly straight.
That all of them that I feel like I have a grasp of. Feel free to edit, rewrite, or add to my definitions if you feel you can improve them. And please write definitions of your own and please be open to your work being edited, and re edited until we get to something we all like :). If there’s conflicting opinion about any of the definitions we can discuss it in detail and will likely list all the opinions in the definition or maybe split the opinions into two different traits in our little dictionary.
Edited out the part about creating separate threads, if you didn’t read it don’t worry about it. I think we can discuss it all well in just one thread.
Have a blast, and be one with the yo-yo.
