Reverse Yo-yo?

Reverse Yo-yo?

Post by Simon Hay » Thu, 07 Jan 1999 04:00:00


Had one of those days today, you know - when you pull off some neat
stuff that previously seemed beyond you. My Fanatic seemed to go
mental and did some way cool tricks (well, I thought so anyway!)
Anyhow, I'm just wondering, is a yo-yo done fade wise (ie toward you)
still a yo-yo or is it called something else?

Hi Simon

My VCR has taken it unto itself to stop being a recorder and now is merely
a player. All I've been able to watch on it recently are old tapes such as
Fawlty Towers, Yes Prime Minister, Black Adder, various skiing tapes, and
of course kite videos.

In the fourth book of Dodd it is said that a yo-yo executed as you
describeth is to be known henceforth as a backwards yo-yo - an oy-oy,
presumably. The great one also sayeth that it's a pig to do and needs a
load of practice and some luck.

Regards
James

PS Simon, I assume you mean: Dive downwards, pancake, flic into fade,
continue "through" fade into yo-yo by giving excess slack. That's what I'm
on about, anyway.
