Responsive Freehand tutorials

Hey y’all, I’ve been working on a new collaboration with the folks at Rain City Skill Toys. It’s a slimline responsive yo-yo called the “Pop Art” and it’s designed specifically for counterweight play. The yo-yo will be available on YoYoExpert this Thursday, July 9th.

To celebrate, I’ve started making a series of tutorials for responsive freehand play. The first two are up now and I’ll keep making them as long as y’all keep watching them.

[edit: the series is finished. Adding the rest here]

Back with another responsive counterweight tutorial. This one is a fun aerial maneuver called the Flirt Flip.

I’ve heard that this responsive 5A style looks very intimidating, but I hope more people give it a try. It’s really not that bad and you don’t need to already be good at 5A or modern responsive to get started.
