Yo-Be's... A new style of yoyoing?


#1

I saw this commercial about yo-be’s, and it struck me that it was practically a ginormous responsive yo-yo… I would like to purchase one of these. What do you guys think of this?

Definately worth looking into, I think.

i don’t think its a yoyo at all it just a frisbee on a string


#3

Honestly, I’m no where to even close to interested in this.

I bought a Diabolo this summer which is a lot more technical than waving a disk around… ::slight_smile:


#4

I was gonna post about this… It looks like something I’d try out. Not the coolest thing though.


#5

It isn’t as cut and dry as it looks. I saw a video of some people doing pretty technical stuff on it. I would definately try it if I could.

I have one, it is fun! ;D But yeah, nothing like a yoyo. It is a good work out on your arms. It is a good toy to take to the beach or just play with when you you have nothing to do. It is basically a fizbee for lowners. A frizbee that you don’t need a friend to play with, and I use it a lot and I don’t have many friends so I guess I’m a lowner. :smiley: :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ve seen the commercial and the point is that you can play a Frisbee by yourself.

#10

No it’s a Frisbee with a bungie.

Some of it looks pretty cool what they do, it can definately be more than come out and back.

Heh, they got yoyoers to do the commercial.

I still think Icthus nailed it. It’s a frisbee with a bungee.

I had something like that when I was a kid. I got it because my sisters would never play Frisbee with me.
