Hey thanks for the reply. I dont take your coment to be mean or undermining. I know i'm inexperienced but seriously at 33 how else do i learn about yoyo'ing but trying simpler ones first?! We dont seem to have yoyo lessons in 3rd grade over in England? The yoyojam comes in the (sorry to upset you yoyo experts) the crappest of packaging, even though the laser engraving is the muts...!? I'm simply trying to learn this "skill" but from a chep axle spinner I thought this was progression! If I knew what a Journey or a Lyn Fry even was then maybe I would try them but I don't. Nowhere on a Axiom packet (and thats all you get for your hard earned pound, euro, buck or baht) does it state to perform a bind..! it does say however that the yoyo is suitable for 3+ years quite boldly which I do believe is absolute kin cod5h!t as i'm 10 times that and can't get the mother back into my hand even with the hardest of flicks from my well versed and exercised wrist! As soon as I manage to "simply" perform a bind (which the definition of is neither written or understood nowhere in the world but on this website) then I will write back, or even post a picture with the greatest of satisfaction. Here's to the bind, may she come soon!
