Put those silly things away. Precession should be your only obsession.

What a difference 12 years make! 
I suspect that for non-yo-yoers the 2000 style is much easier to follow and understand, what I guess also makes it more enjoyable to watch.
Tyler: you were really into that song!  ;D
Chris: how cool can you be?  ;D ;D

Hey, twelve years ago I had different hair color too.  Then twelve years ago before that I also had different hair color! 

I guess time flies when you are having fun and it looked like you were having fun in the video.  I enjoyed it.  I also enjoyed the big finish with the microphone stand (I assume it was a mike stand or something like it).  Good work!

very good stuff tyler!
as for you chris, i agree with ta0 that your stylings from the last century are easier to follow, as for ease of understanding, my knuckles bleed just watching someone do 5A with a responsive yo-yo. that is some of the coolest stuff ever. that video is like the missing link vid from the old style to the new. it's historic man! you're a pioneer.

I enjoyed both videos.  I guess my fascination with spinning things with string started with yo-yos.  So, what model of yoyos were you spinning in those videos?

I was using a poly carbonate Duncan Wheel modded to take a bearing, basically one of the Freehand 1 prototypes me and Steve Brown used in HTBAP vol 1.  Unresponsive play did not exist yet.  That was my qualification video for the "X" division in the 2000 World Yo-Yo Contest.  Only the top 10 videos qualified, I made it.  I used the same routine but did not hit very many tricks, I got 6th.

Oh and Tyler, I think I only counted one miss in your routine?!  Did you place?
