dcs937 guide to newbs - intermediate yoyoers
If you dont know anything and want to start yoyoing buy a velocity. Dont buy a journey or a whip unless you want shorter spin times. This yoyo will allow you to make it responsive or unresponsive. There is no right answer but you should start responsive then go to unresponsive.
Beginner: Watch the videos on this website, maintenance and beginner. DO IT. TRUST ME.
-You can skip UFO, but learn how to fix your tension soon if you can on your own (you tube etc). The actual move of UFO is not important.
If you can bind and have no problem doing it… Buy a yoyo that doesnt need to be screwed like the velocity. Buy a cheap metal that fits your liking… Here are my suggestions:
If you are just past binding buy the METALS: dv888 or yuuksta
If you can bind but your on a budget:
You can also get cheap/good PLASTICS: from YYF: Starlite, Protostar, Northstar, GrindMachine.
Now stick to this website and finish out most of the tricks (forget the ones that you cant finish or dont like, but do your best first.
If budget is not an issue: learn if you like metal small or large. Go through the high end yoyos and pick a small metal and a big metal. See what you like better than go see what the hype is about(probably CLYW). Follow the trends (to see what you like) or just go big/large and H shaped/ more rounded visa versa.
Bearings: Dont listen to anyone else: they make a difference… see what you like best out off ALL companies you come around. You also use C bearings. yea they make yoyos out of other letters too but honestly dont worry about those yet. If you bought a yoyo with a different size I would suggest buying a C sized.
String: Try kitty string or regular YYE string. Its fine but if you want to ventrue out then do it once you finish a lot of tricks.
