Arm Grinds:

Probably one of the easiet of all grinds to do, hardest to master.

Easy way to start?

Grab the yo-yo about 1.5 inches from the yo-yo set it on your pointer finger sticking out, and let it ride to your elbow. Make sure you keep your arm straight as it goes. Use your pointer as the "leading" finger, it will set up the path for the yo-yo.

Then move from grabbin the yo-yo and setting to you arm to popping it up and set it the same way with your "Leading" finger. Let it grind all the way down to your elbow.

FRom here you can swing to different mounts or like Gerard or JD can pop it up to other mounts. It's all practice and dexterity.

Okay people, here's the first 3 questions for the 5A section. Anyone is welcome to contribute. =D



1. I'm thinking of learning the basics of 5A. Which yoyo would you recommend for a beginner 5A player? (try to list 3 or more 5A yoyos and give the pros and cons of each of them before giving your recommendation).

2. Which type of string should I use for 5A?

3. What are counterweights and which type should i use if i'm learning 5A?




CHANGELOG for v5.1
- New 5A Questions section!
- Included the 5A Questions in the index.
- Added Outsidethe9's answers to Q1-3 (5A Questions).
- Added TheOrganizer's answers to Q1 and Q2 (5A Questions).
- Updated Pat_Cuartero's answer for QII (2A Questions).

you are most welcome buddy! just a quick note to let you wonderful fellas know that i have not forgot about updating the guide! I've been caught up with my new hobby - card tricks. So i have not been harrassing and hounding people to contribute to the guide haha... =D But oh well, i'll do what little improvements i can think of! (you can always check the changelog of my newest replies to see what i was up to).

Well, if you want to do so, just take a look at the RED text on the guide. Those are the stuff i would really really appreciate contributions on! Well, if you would like to contribute on non red text, sure go ahead! Drop me a pm or just reply to the topic and i'll see what i can do to integrate your stuff into the guide!



CHANGELOG for v5.3
- Added link and stats for YoYoFactory Fast 201 in Q1 (1A Questions).
- Made the prices of yoyos clearer by changing their font style to bold.

CHANGELOG for v5.4
- Moved The Exhaustive list of YoYoing Links all the up the guide to take a prime location just before the 1A question section starts.

Maybe the New Raider Ex should be added to the 2A recomendations. (Although i haven't played it, but the reviews are very impressive). Btw Great Guide. Helps me a lot in the past.
