What is the first trick you do with a new yoyo?


#1

As strange as it sounds, I spend the days before my yoyo arrives deciding what the first trick I will attempt when I get it, only to freak out and check if it really is unresponsive when I get it. What’s the first trick you do?


#2

I don’t freak out when I get a yoyo like you… Lol but I always do a combo, it consists of :kamikaze, branding,Eli hops, and cross-armed GT


#3

I don’t know why but I usually do the matrix.


#4

Never thought about it. Not sure what I do, but probably boingy-boing or zipper.


#5

Skin the gerbil… Its just too much fun, and I get to see how fast theyoyo is, cant wait to d it with a phenom coming my way 8)


#6

Trapeze. Then a kwijibo


#7

I bind to see if the response is snappy or slippy.


#8

Three wraps from a trapeze to see how grabby the response is, and to see the integrity of the spin


#9

Usually just play it like I normally would.

But I always like to see if it can handle Ladder Escape so I do that.


#10

Sleeper


#11

I do the same thing. As fast as I can I throw a skin the gerbil, and then do it horizontal too to see how it handles it.


#12

OMG i do horizontal skin the gerbil too :smiley: its great at testing the speed of a yoyo and horizontal!


#13

The bind. Exciting, I know :stuck_out_tongue:


#14

You have to do the sleeper befor you bind silly :stuck_out_tongue:


#15

Not entirely true.

You have to do a throw, though.


#16

I find that my current trick is always changing… mostly whatever I’m working on, or generally happy to throw in the moment.


#17

Depends, I’ll usually throw hashbrowns first, but it depends on my mood. Then I’ll go into whatever trick or combo I’m working on.


#18

I always throw down a sleeper and bind it no tricks. Then I just start throwing to see how it plays. No tricks in particular.

I do a double or triple laceration hook depending on my mood, then that flows into a double neck wrap/unwrap, and then a between the legs wrap/unwrap. I have a video of it in slow mo somewhere…


#20

The very first trick I do with it was a breakaway and a bind, just to see how the response is. This habit started when I got my MYY N5 and the response was way to slippery.

But when I get new throws I usually learn a few new tricks with each one. Chief? Learned Kwhatjibo and the Sky Bind. Got my classic? Landed a Brent Stole. And kept doing them consistently. ;D
