thumb grinds???


(the_hitman) #1

is it possible to thumb grind with a lyn??? ???


#2

For me, yes.

Some people say you can’t though


(JM) #3

Can it happen? Yes.

Is it easy? No.

Does it take away from the fun because it’s hard? For me, just a little.


#4

Mabe if u take caps out.


(JM) #5

I don’t think the Lyn Fury has caps. Even if there are, it would help any because of how far back they are.


#6

Try tilting your yoyo towards your thumb grinding thumb. So it’ll be easier to land.


#7

Lyn’s do have caps. Removing them makes thumb grinding a lot easier, because you can stick your thumb much deeper.

Just make sure you throw at a slight angle, you can see thats what Andre did in a dogbite video to grind on a legacy. Just a slight angle and stick your thumb as far in as possible. It’s as easy as doing it on a hitman, but harder than a new breed.

ok…ive taken the caps out and throw it at a slight angle but when i pop it up onto my thumb it automatically bounces off! is there some unexplained reason for this O.o, or does this happen to a lot of people?


(POLLO YOYO) #9

you have to stic kyou thumb pointing up into the lip and try to follow the yoyo so it doesnt fall


#10

Just practice, this happens on almost everyone’s first try. Also, the more of an angle, the easier it gets. Just practice.


#11

Don’t stick your thumb into the yoyo, let it land there.

hey, it’s kinda off topic, but is the lyn fury any good (i assume thats what ur using?) I’m using a kickside atm, if lyn better or the same as that?

SOrry if this is off topic to thread, I’m new to fourms and don’t know where I’d post a Q like that, so seeing this, I jumped at the chance… =p


(the_hitman) #14

like everyone here says,“its all about prefrence…”
but in my opinion i think the lyn is a little bit better then the kickside


#15

It is preference.

You said it yourself. In YOUR opinion.


(Alceste) #16
