I’ve just heard for the first time about yo-yo and then after a quick search on the net I ended-up on this website.
The immediately watched all basic tricks (and now started the intermediate tricks), so what I need now is a yo-yo to practice them.
But here is where I got blocked, as I want to buy a yo-yo but I don’t know what yo-yo to buy.
By watching those 5 types (1A, 2A, 3A, 4A and 5A) it appears that imperial shape is used in some tricks and only with 2 yo-yos, the butterfly shape in other tricks with 1 yo-yo, offstring shape with some other tricks.
But to create more confusion in my mind, in all the basic tricks video only a butterfly shaped yo-yo was used.
Should I conclude that with butterfly shaped yo-yos can be done more tricks than with imperial shaped ones? And also that with butterfly shaped yo-yos can be done all the tricks done with imperial shaped yo-yos ? Also what about offstring usage?
First I would be interested in getting a table with all tricks (Basic, Intermediate, Advanced1, Advanced2, Expert1,Expert2, Master ones) and for each trick to be mentioned with what yo-yo shape that trick can be performed and with what easiness (for example: trick X: with imperial not possible, with butterfly possible, with offstring possible but more difficult)
Then a next step would be if I could get for each yo-yos (or at least for the most relevant yo-yos for sale) displayed for sale, those same descriptions (i.e what tricks could be done, with what easiness etc).
A last point is how long does a string last (in terms of hours of usage or else).
Thanks for all your help,
