@Skyline on winning the grand prize in our Colin Beckford Forum Chat W/ The Pros Giveaway! You won a new UNPRLD FLASHBACK!
A few questions for you!
1.) Something I see discussed often is tricks that click (meta tricks) vs. tricks that innovate, and how the competitive sphere has influenced the kinds of routines that players perform. As both a competitor and a judge, do you feel that the scoring system as it currently exists stands to hinder the long term development of yoyoing as it penalizes players for taking creative risks (and instead rewards them for established tricks that are known to click)? Why…
And congrats to these 5 random winners, you’ll be getting a $10 YoYoExpert Gift Card!
Don’t know if this was answered before, but what is the origin of scales? I.e. what was the inspiration behind the name “scales” and what was the motivation behind the founding of it.
Since I started yo-yoing again earlier this year, I’ve seen a lot of pretty good starter yo-yos recommended, like the First Base, Sage, or Arrow. However, there’s a big gap between these price-wise and something like the Butterfly XT, which are cheap and very widely available. What do you think might eventually fill that gap? What would your ideal yo-yo for little kids look like?
and would you make a yoyo in the shape of it?
or at least inspired by it. lmao.
What do you look for in your competition throws vs. your EDC? Without going into brand specifics, what specs do find cover most if your needs? And lastly, how come I never see you smile in competition? Lol
Hey man. How would you like the yoyo scene to develop over time and where do you see it going in terms of broad popularity in the next 10 years or so?
Winners will receive a message shortly. Thanks to everyone who participated!
