The 0A Thread (Fixed Axle & Modern Responsive)

Oh that’s not me, that’s the man behind TMBR Colin Leland playing a Purple Heart Irving back in 2011. I just figured out how to only do a couple in a row. Neutral tension keep it smooth, roll completely over the TH before release, stay confident and catch, repeat. I’ve also have landed into a stall, but not under constant control yet. Having fun with this element.

going through this ooooold fixed axle youtube playlist and came across this one from 6 years ago which I still dig, all on the early TMBR stuff. (The end is worth it lol) :slight_smile:

I compiled this a while back:

Unfortunately a lot of the videos are no longer available, but it’s still a good resource.

I was going to try to get through it, but it got real hard, real fast for me!

BTW, @Logi, who was the runner up, has posted some amazing whip/laceration tricks on a fixed axles. Haven’t seen him around…

That is awesome! Lol that contest was STRESSFUL. It was tough to think of sequentially more difficult tricks to hit. I kinda hated to finish it on loops, but those guys were deadlocked and I was leaving the country lol. Would be interesting to try it again now that the 0a scene has evolved a bit. It definitely pulled some folks into it at least for a while.

Loved that contest! I’m busier than I’d like to be usually, so that contest helped me to try things that would’ve probably taken me longer to try.

Nice! I haven’t gotten what I’d call “consistent” yet with varials, but they are so satisfying when you land them.

Prob my favorite trick I’ve come up with. Feels like such a cool exclamation point after a combo too. Oa equivalent of a jumping stick or earth turn on kendama.

So many great, but really difficult tricks in this thread!

I have a couple of original tricks that should be more in reach for many of us. I have got to post them for the rest of us to have fun with!

Plus, I’d like to see what @edhaponik et al could do with one of them called “Chalk Line”.

Does anybody else have some less difficult tricks to share?

Yeah! Learn them backside and not frontside like the one i posted here! That would make it way easier to land. For some reason my brain thought this would be the natural and most easier way to do it but it is not (Maybe that’s why i had to grind a lot to land it).

The toughest thing to figure out is how to make the yoyo spin on it’s vertical axis cleanly. The hand twist you have to do is a very refined movement. Practice that a lot. Please learn it the way Ed teaches it here lol.
