Hello, my name is Ray and I am rather old for a Yoyoer at 39 but hey why stop. I first started at 23 with a free yoyo. From there my favorite company became yoyojam, and my favorite yo was the x-con but much love to André. I took 7 years off from the hobby but got back into it a year ago. Sad to see yoyojam go but one drop is my new favorite company and the Markmont Classic is my regular yo.

Hello, looking to get a yoyo for my son and looks like I'm gonna get one also..looking at the DV888 and Yeti 2.0..he's 14..he's familiar with responsive yoyo so want to get him a unresponsive one now to challenge him (and me).  I like the DV888 for him and the Yeti 2.0 for me (and that it shares the same name as a MTB brand..I like to MTB.)  Anyway, look forward to talking to you guys/gals soon.

Hi everyone! My name is Steve, I've been out of throwing for a while and caught the bug when I was cleaning my room and found all my old collection. I did some maintenance because they had been sitting for a while and just picked it right back up. I bought a big Dipper to see what the newer stuff felt like and have bought a few more throws since.

I look forward to chatting with everyone. I've been browsing the forum for a while (during downtime at work lol) and it looks like a good unity you have here.

Greeting all

My name (at least here and on thrower reddit) is SirMoYo. I have only been throwing now for a few months and absolutely love it. I am terrible but it is a lot of fun.  My favorite trick? Anything that does not end in a horrific knot (cause I can knot it up with the best of them).

Anyway, I am really glad to have found this forum and look forward to learning from all you folks who actually know what you are doing  Smiley

Hey all! My name is Paul, I used to post on Dave's Skill Toys and then YoyoNation once that closed down. I posted under "Paul Z". I was huge into trading, and had over 100 trades on YYN Tongue

Since YYN Closed, ive been out of the loop, and finished college/had adult stuff to do.

I recently bought a house and moved all my stuff over from storage and found my yoyo case. Ive always kept one or two floating around but never really was "into it" as I have lots of other hobbies and way less time now.

Anyway, in case anyone remembers me (I had a bit of a collection going, ill post some pics and maybe some for sale threads soon to wittle it down a bit)

anyway, Its great to be back in and Id love to meet some new people, especially in my area. I used to throw w ppl at college and kind of lost the mojo when they all moved away.

Im sure ill recognize a few of you down the line!

In case anyone remembers, I was the crazy guy that had Frank do this to a zzzip-fly and a hitman XD

Hello everyone I'm brand new to the yoyo scene with the equipment to grow 1,2,3,4 and 5A
I bought an "echo 2" unresponsive as my first and immediately fell in love.
Now a week later I just got my "aeronaut"
And within the week I should be getting 2  "Ex Machina"
2 "clash 44"
And an "origami"

I'm just starting out and excited to do cool things

Just picking things back up at age 30. I played quite a bit when I was 14-15, always into string tricks for sure. I used a lot of Yomega products then because I didn't know a ton about all types of yoyos. Not that Yomega is a bad product or anything, after reading up I am just learning there are a ton of different ones out there. I got myself a Raider to get back into stuff. That was my precious favorite and I used to be able to pull off some decent string tricks with it, although I'm learning I'll need something a little less responsive and to learn to bind to get longer tricks in. I also have a Maverick on the way as well as a YYF Velocity. I got myself some Toxic Dragon strings and thick lube as well. Just wondering ab anymore tips or tricks for starting back up? I appreciate it!
