So I just got back from a road trip out West and I tried to get my picture in front of some nice scenery whenever I got the chance.
I also stopped at YYF’s HQ and had a great time, spent way longer than I anticipated and got some lessons on fingerspinning and how to Tornado Bind from a very friendly (and patient) Keith Conklin!
Keith also let me try out the YYF throws that I’ve seen everyone use but never had a chance to try myself. I ended up buying a Shutter Wide Angle and I think it might actually replace the Speedaholic XX as my go-to throw! I actually can land and recover a fingerspin better on the SHWA than on the Speed’ which surprised me.
Anyway I thought I’d post the pics up here, it was a great trip. I was gonna put them on Instagram but I was instabanned as soon as I created an account so not real pleased with their anti-bot algorithm. Waiting for a reply to the appeal.
This was at a lake near Amarillo I think, had to sleep in the van the night before so I’m not looking my best, LOL:
