How to Choose a Yo-Yo Shape Part 2 of 2
The following is a quick guide to primary yoyo shapes. The three yoyos that we’ll take to look at are the traditional shape, slimline or midline yoyos and the butterfly.
The traditional shape is good for beginners interested in performing basic tricks. These yoyos tend to throw a little slower than other shapes.
Slimline or midline yoyos have a low profile causing them to throw down faster and are greet for looping.
The butterfly shape has the widest gap and is perfect for tricks where you catch the yoyo on the string such as the trapeze. A butterfly yoyo with a ball bearing is great for accomplishing more advanced tricks and a butterfly with a fixed axle is the best shape for shoot the moon.
The story behind the butterfly yoyo is that somebody messed up while trying to make a traditional yoyo at one of the yoyo factories and accidentally put the sides on wrong and the shape has been with us ever since.
Your skill level and style of play will help you decide the best yoyo to use and it’s always good to experiment with other shapes. Until next time.
