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

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.

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.
