Your First Throw?


#1

Who remembers their first throw? Post it here.
My first yoyo was the old YoyoFactory One


#2

YYJ Dragon Jam, still have it :slight_smile:


#3

I actually modded my one so it’s unresponsive


#4

Mine was a Duncan Mosquito.


#5

First one I remember was a Duncan Firewheel, then some Coke “Spinners” from the late 80’s promotion (still got those). After that I didn’t play again until 1996 when I picked up a black fireball, then a Team Losi Da Bomb and it’s all downhill from there.


#6

I had two, actually. FAST 201 (red) and plastic Grind Machine (blue). Still have both. 8)


(major_seventh) #7

Butterfly when I was 8.

Still have it.


#8

The first yoyo that made me pursue the hobby was one of those Fast 2.0.1.'s. The Dark Magic was the one I started learning on. Then the DV888 was my first metal.

I had cheap Duncan and Yomegas growing up though.


#9

Duncan Proyo. Still have it, but one of the caps is missing. Wear and tear.


#10

Duncan Butterfly. Got it in my Easter basket at 5 years old.


#11

Duncan Dragonfly


#12

Some sort of Bandai Super Yoyo. I’m pretty sure it looked something along the lines of this http://www.yoyowiki.org/wiki/Bandai_Super_Yo-Yo_Hyper_Warp


#13

#14

an imperial shaped absolutely terrible yoyo


#15

My first YoYo was a Ned glo yo. But my first bearing YoYo was the whip… Still have it to this day… :slight_smile: :slight_smile:


#16

A Duncan imperial duh! ;D


#17

First real throw was a red USA-made Duncan Imperials…spent my hard-earned $5 when I went to the mall. Originally was going to get the Yomega Brain as I had seen that one sleep. I quickly learned that I can also make the Imperial sleep when I was testing it out in the mall.

First decent modern throw that got me back into yoyoing was the Duncan FH2 (2010 revamp).


#18

Duncan Dragon? ;D


#19

My first was a Duncan butterfly, my first bearing yoyo was a dark magic 2 Haha, but I got through the tutorials with that one yoyo


#20

My very first yoyo was a cheap wooden one, no brand. I got it from my parents when I was 5 or so. When the yoyo boom hit in the mid 90’s, I had a Yomega Firestorm Wing.

My first real yoyo though after getting into the hobby properly was a Yomega Maverick, which I used to learn the basics, and I quickly moved on to a Dark Magic 2.
