Just a little thing I was twiddling around with today.
Song is “These Old Hurts” by Army of Ponch. They appear courtesy of No Idea Records.
Yo-yo used is the XX by XXXX XXXXXXX.
I know it looks silly, but damn is this fun to do…
Song is “Do The Metal” by Electric Eel Shock.
Yo-yo is the G5 by YoYo Factory.
Twiddling with hubstacks…I love being able to turn the yo-yo over and have it spinning in the opposite direction. Figured it would be worthwhile to come up with a trick that actually used that. 🙂

In 2004, Takeshi sent me a Bootleg Monkey with free-spinning sidecaps. I broke it almost immediately. But before I broke it, I came up with this combo, a few more that I’ll get around to filming eventually, and some counterweight tricks that were the infant beginning of my 2007 Worlds routine. The burst of creativity I had with that yo-yo was absolutely insane, and I was pretty jealous (but excited) that YoYo Factory got a reliable yo-yo with spinning caps to market with a design that was infinitely better than the one I left at Duncan when I quit. (I still have no idea what they did with that design, since it’s never been released. Although they fired the engineer who was working on it shortly after I left, so it’s probably in the bottom of a desk drawer some where…or it just got thrown away.)
The day I first held a YoYo Factory G5 in my hands with T-Stacks was the day I realized I could never out-engineer Hans and Ben. It was also the day I realized I didn’t want to, and I was pretty content to just be the guy playing with yo-yos instead of trying to design them. That was a big day for me, personally, and I felt a tremendous weight lift off my shoulders.

I love hubstacks. I love Planes Mistaken For Stars. Two great tastes that taste great together.
Today’s trick is brought to you by YoYo Factory and the G5 yo-yo.
