Speed and Flow


#1

Ok guys just a topic starter…what do you like better? Someone with a lot of speed, or someone who is a little slower but has amazing flow to their tricks? I’m personally with flow. To me it just looks better.


#2

Flow fo sho


(YoYoStringLab) #3

For pure enjoyment, flow. Speed if done clean, does get a wow out of me.


#4

anything that flows with the music chosen


(SR) #5

Flow all the way.


#6

Flow, for sure. It shows me more control

I like Mickey’s style, but honestly, all that speed stuff kinda wears me down fast.

I do like it to be mixed up a bit, but more flow than speed.


#7

Speed for me, but i do appreciate a player with good flow.


#8

…both…


#9

Flow definitely if you dont have that first you don’t have speed


#10

Flow is more fun to watch but in the hands of the right yoyoer, speed really impresses me. Speed comes with tons of practice and after flow, though.


#11

Easy, flow is way better, as probably most of you will agree. It’s relaxing, and you can actually see what they’re doing.


(SR) #12

Ah, let me be more precise: Jensen flow.

Bam.


#13

Exactly. Way better than Hiroyuki’s speed.


(SR) #14

Absolutely, I can’t ever really get into that. Jensen’s flow is like… art. It’s just like so beautiful and amazing haha. Hiroyuki’s is impressive but can get old because it get’s tiring after a bit as it all looks pretty much the same.


#15

flow for me.


#16

See that’s how i feel too. Some videos are just amazing because the style and flow of the clip goes so well with the music.


#17

Usually flow. I really like Guy Wright’s slow, smooth style. It just impresses me.

But then there’s the other side of me that enjoys speed. But I think to achieve great speed you have to master flow so your freestyles are not super choppy.


#18

I do appreciate speed. Its something I can never really do and I admire the ones who make it look good. Guy Wright’s my favorite, his flow is art.


(SR) #19

HOW DID I FORGET GUY WRIGHT. Next to Jensen, his flow is absolutely… mmmmmmmm.


#20

Flow = lack of speed.

This thread = Slow players; rationalizing their inability to play fast.

“Yeah, I can’t do half the tricks some guys can do in 3 minutes - but hey it FLOWS man…”

Yeah right. If these “flow” players could play fast; they would in order to win contests. They don’t; therefore, they can’t.

QED.
