Super sick post, dude. The vids were kickass. Was it just me, or was there someone holding up a syringe 20 seconds into the last vid? That ------- tripped me out when I first saw it, man.

started yesterday and loving it, I'm unable to do any real 5A tricks but I played a little 1A with the occasional "let go" of the CW, the sensation is awesome

and for some reason, throw and catch 5A feels way more natural to me than 1A  :idiot2: I can't wait to get to know some tricks ^^

getting more and more of the "5A feel" now, all my throws have CWs attached, some also have double CW as I'll head towards this style in particular

I find it for DD5A, it makes things easier when the sliding/middle CW is a bit heavier than the end CW

It comes with the new Light Up FHZ and can be bought separately as well. Many online shops now have them in stock.

5A rules

I'd really recommend to get 5A specific throws, usually, from my little experience, I find that the little extra center weight will help with some of the momentum generation needed to swing the CW around in 5A specific tricks such as beesting.

here's a small, non exhaustive list of my "5A approved" throws (keep in mind that I'm still a baby in the style, feel free to correct me if you think I'm wrong)

YYJ Destiny
SPYY Trainwreck (either version, but the V2 is a bit better IMO)
YYF Severe
Xcube Steamroller (if you like it wide)
OneDrop 54 (with heavy side effects)
OneDrop Code 1 (same, with heavy side effects)
SPYY Addiction
Duncan Freehand Zero (for the budget minded or the modders)

Although regarded as crap by some I liked the YYF One for 5a. It had some good center mass IMO and it only $10 with a spec bearing. Good to stick in your backpack or car or something with a CW for whenever you forget your main throw

the one is very nice indeed, I used to have one for 5A, but the overall performance is pretty much like the FHZ, cool for learning the basis or play here and there, not the best for "advanced" practice

but yes, definitely a good throw for the price and very decent for 5A

I was just explaining to my girl how much I enjoy watching hadoq's 5a/dd5a videos on youtube, have been for a while now. Its awesome to see how much you have progressed in the last year and some change. Much like you I now play 5a/dd5a as my main style (though i also delve into every A style as well as experimental styles). My list of preferred yoyos for 5a seems to vary quite a bit from yours, as i prefer TONS of rimweight., For example. heres a few.
CLYW Avalanche
C3 H5
SPYY Solaris
RecRev Mangaroo
YYF Genesis
c3 Halo
Crucial Confection
Crucial Tres Leches

And other various H-profile throws, Though I must say, other than my Avas, My fave 5a throw, and fastest, is my nickel YYJ PHENOM. (capless) Just an amazing throw period.

Anyway Hadoq, Keep up the amazing work!
