what gives more spin time

a lot of people do spin time vids while holding there hubstacks, some just do it by throwing it down. Are the spin timesusually the same or does one have a larger spin time. I want to know because i may trade one of my yoyos for a 888 and they have hubstacks

Holding the stacks and pull starting gives a longer spin on hubstacks than a throw… less wasted energy.
