What do you call a profesional yo-yoer?


#1

Is there a specific name for people who yo-yo professionally?

Saying, “those guys that are really good, that I’m jealous of” is kind of a mouthful.


#2

Pros :wink:


#3

Hmmm… why dont we call them, ProYos. ;D


(Q) #4

There is a difference between yoyoing professionally and being a good yoyoer. If they are with a company, they are considered professional or sponsored. If they are just good yoyoers, they are good players.


#5

I say if you are a good yoyoer but not sponsored you are an expert


#6

Actually, being a professional yoyoer would mean yoyoing is your profession. Your profession is what you get paid to do/how you make a living.

So… Unless you get paid, you’re not a professional.
