Fantastic. Only 1 small observation, exposure at @:50, and angle looked best to me.

Damn dude, you are really good!
I loved the one at 00:49. Did you create this trick? Does it have a name?

Also loved the song. lol the original (Marshmello - Alone) was stuck in my dang head for like 2 weeks recently. I couldn’t get enough of it!

Wow that was amazing!!:star_struck:

Seeing videos like these sometimes makes me want to practice and get better and reach these levels!
Sometimes it makes me feel like dang! and want to just give up haha.

Anyone want to share beginner videos? :sweat_smile:

I know what you mean… Some days I’m just like, “that’s it, I give up…”. FWIW, I watched some @Markmont videos yesterday and had the opposite reaction. I felt inspired instead of prematurely defeated lol! I love his style. He plays at a pace that’s fast but not so fast it’s a blur, so you can always see what he’s doing; it’s at the same time more impressive and less intimidating at the same time.

@Legit_yoyostrings Dang dude, that was awesome! Well done man. I wish I knew more of those tricks/elements. I’ve learned the majority of the 1a stuff on YYT, but I’m still missing so much. Thanks for sharing your video, I’m super impressed.

Yes sir! You described the feeling better than I did.

For example when I watch @twitch77’s video I feel motivated.
Lol! Not because he is a beginner. But because I can name most of those elements and it makes me a lot more interested in wanting to learn. I see him nailing a smooth Kwyjibo that at the time I never learnt before and inspired me to learn the trick.
Some videos I watch, as impressive as they are, I might as well be watching a washing machine in motion.
I actually really like watching @Gentry_Stein videos. The way he beats to the music making it look as if he’s not doing yoyo tricks but as if he’s trying to make the yoyo dance! This inspires me to learn.

Amen brother, it was also a @markmont video that inspired me to pick up the hobby again.

This one to be exact.

I can’t quite place my finger on what makes this video so mesmerising.
I think it is @Markmont’s stove that does it maybe.

Seriously digging Cumulus Foam too. Some people are a bit incredulous about the longevity and the utility of washing string. I’ve been using 1 CF on a bunch of throws and it was getting dirty and starting to feel lifeless—finally washed it and it feels almost new. It even rejuvenated the tension a bit where it was looking loose at the end of the string. It had some fraying which made it look less nice, so I used a fabric shaver(depiller) on it and it looks almost new again too. So far so much better than good :+1:

Any chance CF could be made in different colors? :grinning:

Glad you dig man. Unfortunately from color to color, the string performs different even when it’s the same material. For instance, all the formulas that share the DRAGON genome have at times identical makeup to DRAGON, but play entirely different based on the dyes attributes. You may like Copernicus (Copi) though. It has a similar ‘juice’ like feel to it but bouncier and lighter in play. Moves a bit more swift as well.
