New to (modern) YoYoing
« on: July 26, 2012, 01:58:01 PM »

Hey guys, new here.  Sling the obligatory Duncan as a kid, then in later years, learned about the advancements (through Tommy Smothers, no less).  Been shopping around for a YoYo.  Any suggestions for a beginner?
Thanks

Any Yoyo jam or yyf plastics to get things starting is your best bet ! Maybe a darkmagic or northstar or plasticsgrind machine . If you don't know how to bind I'm guessing you dont then somthing like speed dial is great as it allows you to change the response setting.

Good luck and welcome

Both of those require a bind. Do you know how to bind? :].

In other words when you tug to make the yoyo come back, it won't because they are designed to be "unresponsive" to a tug. The Dark Magic II by YoYo Jam that is suggested above comes with two different bearings so you can start out with "responsive" play first and then move on to "unresponsive" play when you can bind.  Starting out with responsive play has the advantages of having fun right out of the box, less frustration and winding every throw, plus it teaches good technique.

Binding is a way to put enough loose string into the gap to get it to catch on the yoyo's reponse system to wind up. Check out this instructional video available through this website:
