Little question


#1

Why is that some people stand up a little and get a huge windup for a throw. Does that really give more power?
I dunno, but the normal smooth throw looks better…

I dont know that it really helps TOO too much but any extra momentum is bound to even marginally increase the velocity of the throw, think of how pitchers pitch. I don’t do it myself but hey if you feel you need that little bit of umph, go for it! :stuck_out_tongue:

A flick will do, really. You don’t need that much power.


#4

Yep. I used to know a guy from the Rapid City SD area who’s in a wheelchair. He does very well using mostly wrist flick.


(Q) #5

The amount of energy you use during a “Wind up throw” gets dissipated in the wrist anyway. The excess momentum just wastes time, any change in RPM or spin time would be miniscule. If any.


#6

Wrong Q.
Have you ever done a spin time? I have. Trust me I got a few minutes on a power throw.

Now for normal yoyoing it isn’t needed. Just a flick’l do.


(Q) #7

Thank you for catching my mistake in wordings , sir.

IMO, that just makes a knot hurt that much more :’(

People dont wind up thats the normal position for a proper straight breakaway and its a relaxing and confident position.

Dude, look at some of the newer videos. Some of those little kids look like they are intent on killing their yo-yo if the string breaks.

So? They can if they want.
