Just curious if anybody is still throwing wood? I have taken a break from making yoyos since last summer (teaching full time and being dad to a one year old takes a lot out of a person).
I haven't read much about wood on the forums lately and I wasn't sure if currently there isn't much of a demand Undecided

I am sure a lot of people who don't chime in still throw wood everyday.  The only real problem I see in Wooden Yo-Yo's is that not enough company's back it and the technology for what would be Wooden 1A is not up to spec.

Basically.., ONE OF THE COMPANY'S NEEDS TO MAKE A 55mmx44mm/65G (or so) C-SIZE BEARING YO-YO WITH BRAKE PADS...Then there might be more attention to it.  And it IS possible, my theory is that it is possible to make an equal performing Yo-Yo out of all the basic materials of Titanium, Aluminum, Delrin/Plastic, or Wood, too.

Doesn't have brake pads, but Jensen has made several wooden yoyos that have a large C bearing and silicone, they are really really good.

And I play fixed axle at least 50% of the time, and split the other time between responsive and unresponsive bearing yoyos.

One thing I like about my Moxon is that it's different than my metal throws, fixed axle and all wood. Makes me approach things from another angle

I don't always ding my expensive yo-yos, but when I do, I just throw them again!   ;-)

For me, wood means fixed axle. If someone wants to put the effort into a modern wood bearing yoyo, then more power to them. But that's not what I look for when I hold a wood yoyo in my hands.

Nope! It's been awhile since I threw a wooden yoyo.

I enjoy wooden yoyos. I don't use them tons however. They are so simplistic which I really enjoy when I'm stressed.
I feel that there is a demand for them, just not as much as unresponsive yoyos.

Your theory is incorrect.

Well it would be nice to see some more Wood Yo-Yo's with Bearings that I can do more than Kamikaze with.

You can do more than Kamikaze, with a fixed axle wooden yo-yo, it just might be different stuff.

Most yoers view wood as a different "animal". However, I have thought it "wood" be cool to see someone push the envelope with an unresponsive wooden yoyo. I would love to try one of Jensen's creations along those lines.

I'm sure I'll own an OUT one day.
