I really like Ed Haponik’s videos, they’re wonderful. And I’ve been following the fixed axle contest and I’ve enjoyed it a lot (great work guys!).
So here I am, now I’m planning to buy a Butterfly Optic Star No Jive and I have a couple of questions:
Is it necessary to do any modifications to the yoyo or do you play stock?
Is it advisable for a new player who is now in the advanced part 1 of this site, and starting with unresponsive yoyoing, to get into fixed axle at the same time? I guess there’s no problem but I would like to read your words.
As I wrote in my introduction, I had a great time with the two first sections and it’s so reassuring when your yoyo comes back to your hand with a simple tug! I think I love old classic responsive yoyoing (or this “modern progressive” fixed axle you play nowadays)
