This is an excellent thread to speak about and I may post it on other forums to get their insight! Anyways, I have seen yoyoers come and go, from being video makers to competitors yoyoing always has a spot for someone.
One of my top choices would definitely be Brent Dellinger. Back in 2002 he was in his prime, especially his nationals freestyle. He had the flash effect, he had some spectacular tech tricks mixed with slack and was famous for the ever insane whips…like three or 4 wrap swings. Then, for some reason he just…stopped. I am not even sure if he still judges or not.
Another person I have to make a mention about is Jordan Cooper, whom was from the 2000-2002 era of throwing. He always came back to make some amazing clip videos and represent MA so very well. There is a lot of yoyoers I never had a chance to meet and he was definitely one of them.
i miss conviction666 (aka bryan) he is still my favorite player but he quit yoying awhile back. Also i miss jueno motzcko he still yoyos but i just haven’t seen him in awhile. im not even sure if hes apart of duncan anymore beacuse he is not on their website
Bryan was absolutely amazing with his technical abilities for 1a. I wish he would of went on to other styles of throwing, would of been amazing. He was doing it on and off but I am not sure if he still does or not.
Juno Motzko still throws every now and then but his heart isn’t into it like he used to be as a kid. He plays a lot of various music now. And no, he is not apart of Duncan Crew USA anymore.
