What is up my dudes!?!?! I got a story for all ya’ll people. So a few weeks ago was MWR (Midwest Regional Yoyo Championships) While I was there I found probably the last retail available YYJ Inspire at the Airtraffic Kites and Games booth. Now back in my young days when I was 13, dang that feels like so long ago. That was the yoyo I wanted the most. John Narum was like my favorite person ever. Anyways, of course I bought that thing, it made me feel like a kid all over again. I mean I’m only 19 but I don’t feel like a kid anymore that much anymore, that Inspire sure brought me way back though. I made a video with it here, if your curious.
Anyways I hopped on the forums to post that video and take a look around once again, and whuuuuuut??? the forums are all different!
I know I’m young but so many things have changed. Just since I started yoyoing many companies and websites have come and gone, styles of yoyo’s have changed, styles of play have changed. I mean don’t get me wrong I love the advancements that the sport of yoyoing has made, it just makes me appreciate the old things a little more as well.
Whats you favorite advancement that yoyoing has made within the past decade? Whats your favorite thing that has died and that you miss?
For me I love the advancements into yoyo stabilization and size. Back in 2008-20010 it felt like everything was undersized and high walled. One thing I miss though is some of the unique companies that we have lost, like Spyy and YYJ. They both had great yoyo’s and cool visions.
BTW yoyoexpert the new forums are great. The new layout is confusing me a little, but but I’m getting the hang of it. The site is certainly a lot more modern and visually appealing.
