Loved ones and yo-yo's


For all the family people out there what does your loved ones think about your hobby in the yo-yo world?


The bearing noise…

The noise…

The Noise!!!

I thought my yoyos were my loved ones :stuck_out_tongue: . Silly me ::slight_smile: .


“Why aren’t you reading or spending your time doing something worthwhile? You aren’t going to retire early because of yoyoing”-Parents who think I should be studying


Wait they aren’t?

I was saying my quiet yoyos were mad at my loud ones…

It was a joke!!!



Oi, maybe the quiet ones are just jealous from lesser attention…

Serious Note, though.

My parents don’t mind, so long as I stop buying so many with my supposed to be for college cash…

My GF loves watching me when I throw, she kind of looks mezmerized when I do some horizontal shenanigans ;D :smiley:


lol nice, i get some interesting remarks from my fiancee, one night i was goofing off with a few tricks and she was watching. “She was like thats pretty cool!” I go i could teach you a new move, she says “Oh whats that?” I threw a sleeper stopped it early then turned to her and said I could show you how to “Walk the doggy style” hasnt said anything since about my hobby lol

My mom thinks its just fascinating to watch.


My family thinks I spend to much time and money on it. They also hate the bearing noise so I can’t play it when everyone’s watching tv or something. :-\


Maybe you guys should learn how to clean and lube bearings properly. No idea why someone would intentionally subject themselves to bearing noise when a drop of lube will silence it with no noticeable performance degradation.


I don’t find a problem with the nose myself and no one around me does either.

Might be a tad off topic but I always laugh when people say they hate hate the noise a hybrid response makes then run dry bearings. ;D


Lol, I like the hybrid noise, actually. I can’t stand total silence.


My family sends me to the streets to make money ;D

My parents and family thinks its pretty awesome. Although they think its really expensive. And their right lol, but its my money haha.


Everyone I know things its cool for like the first 10 seconds then immediately thinks its dumb and a waste of time… Doesn’t slow me down at all… I think its dumb to spend hours on facebook and pinterest so I guess its even lol


Yeah, I like the noise, they don’t.

And I lost my lube…


One must never forget or lose the lube…that is bad.

My kids think its cool, but the older two are getting sick of me showing them new tricks… My younger three like it- the 3 year old tries to copy me, my 1 year old smiles when she sees it and the 13 week old doesn’t seem to care one way or the other yet…

My wife thinks its a huge annoying waste of time but she still loves me lol
