Question - horizontal yoyo


#1

Question: What makes a good horizontal yoyo?


#2

if a yoyo is shaped like a V or H or has a wide gap.
that means the strings wont touch the yoyo walls as much, thus making it spin longer.


#3

low walls which means there isn’t that much space between the response and the taper. I think low walls are good for horizontal I am just starting horizontal alot easier on my gnarhwhal or asteroid than my high walled rollmodel. But you can do it on almost any 1a yoyo.

1.Low Walls
2.V or H shaped
3.On the wider side 43mm+

Also something thats not to heavy would help to because you want to be a tad faster when doing horizontal but its not a big deal how much it weighs.

Yoyos that dont fit this criteria will stick work good just it will be easier with something like I listed.

Heres some examples of yoyos that excel in horizontal.

Learn on a yoyo with high walls, that will smooth it out then look at how smooth you are on a low walled yoyo thats how I learned. Best yoyo for horizontal look superstar 2013 is a good contender.

Apparently the g funk is really good for horizontal but i can’t do any horizontal anyways.

No,no,no…you’re all doing it wrong! Do it on a Canvas like Jensen.

Agree.
