“Found this while playing around with fixed axle concepts on unresponsive yo-yo’s for my Fixed Friday column. Similar in effect to 3D Drewicide, but also totally different. If you watch the slow-mo carefully, you’ll notice a late rejection right before the catch which gets rid of the initial mutation.” – Ed
Yoyo used is the EightySix400 by Werrd.
Song is “Lodestone” by Waylon Thornton.
“This came RIGHT out of Drew’s trick, Shuvit Suicide, in which he used a twisted up Trapeze to swing a Suicide loop around laterally. I’ve never seen anyone do something like that, so I tried to apply it to a Kickflip and change the catching hand at the same time. On a good day, you can really get the yo-yo spinning with that diagonal tre-flip kind of motion, but it’s not easy. Regardless, it’s neat to go from a Trapeze Stall to a Man-Bro Stall through a suicide.” – Ed
