Yo-yo Abbreviations


#1

So I’m still fairly new to yoyoing and thought this would be a good thread for the newbies ;D. Just post abbreviations for anything yoyo related, like OD= One Drop and so forth(not just brands though, anything :smiley: )


#2

OG - original run
FG - fools gold (or b-grade, which has slight vibe or an ano flaw)


#3

Yo for
yoyo lol


#4

Well just a few off the top of my head

MIB - mint in box
NMIB - non-mint in box
MIP - mint in pouch (if applicable)
OG - original run of something (like OG avalanche vs comeback)
CLYW - caribou lodge yoyo works
YYF - yoyo factory
YYJ - yoyo jam

As to what is mint or non-mint, see the BST


#5

Yyf=yoyofactory
Yyj=Yoyojam
C3=c3yoyodesign
IGR=inner grind ring (where you do thumb grinds)

^he said og that applies for orginal runs but if it is an OG Peak that means that it is Levi Painted.

This is incorrect, it actually stands for original gangster.


#7

Lol
correct


#8

Gen-Yo=General Yo
Ft= for trade
Fs= for sale


#9

Wasn’t there something like this before on a forum called yoyo terminology I can’t find it right now but can someone find it for me?


#10

Mucho correcto. I believe there was more than one run of the OG Ava. (I know “correcto” is not proper Spanish but it sounded cool)

I think NMIB means ‘near’ mint in box and not ‘non’ mint in box


(major_seventh) #13

NMIB means the yoyo is near a mint that is inside a box.
MIB means there is a mint in a box.

JK ;D
