Hubtrap – Steve Brown

Counterweight tricks: whereby a small weight is attached to the end of the string which may be released during yo-yo play in order to create a second movement variable, opening up a vast new array of possible movements.
In 1999, I came up with the idea of counterweight yo-yo play and made up a whole slew of really neat shit. In 2007, I added it to someone else’s idea of free-spinning sidecaps on a yo-yo and made a whole slew of really neat shit that looked really easy but was actually really hard.
This is one of those.
Sadly, in order to show you counterweight tricks I have to say goodbye to a sponsor, due to a bunch of legal bullshit that’s almost as boring and irritating to talk about as it is to deal with.
Today’s trick is brought to you by No Idea Records.
Song is “Her Majesty’s Midwestern Islands” by Defiance, Ohio. They appear courtesy of No Idea Records.
Today’s trick was filmed on location at designRoom Creative. They have excellent hard-wood floors. This does not aid in yo-yo play, but it’s worth nothing because they’re ever so lovely.
