Hello, my name is, well you can call me Bones. I joined the forum earlier this year but never formally introduced myself. I am a perpetual novice yoyo player. I follow the activity and know of a few of the bigger names in the scene, as well as have personal met a couple of pretty good yoyo guys which just so happen to live in my remote isolated area. I throw for only fun and relaxation and have no desire to ever compete or take it seriously on any level. I love throwing yoyo make no bones about it. I currently have only one yoyo, a One Drop Burnside and I use either Toxic Strings or Twisted or some of what I call OGYoyo strings made by a guy named Justin in SoCal. I might buy a shiny new One Drop someday, maybe, if a get a big fat bonus at work or something. I live in the remote forests of Northeast Oregon and live as a proper hermit would, ok I don't have a cabin, but that would be pretty great. My play style is fairly simple and straight forward, I just throw traps and double or nothing repeaters mostly. I like watching yoyo videos and following contest news. I don't really follow the latest products, I'm not a yoyo collector. I like to listen to Baroque music and I wear sweaters. I flip burgers for my living. :geek:

Heya, my names Justin, and I've been lurking in the dark for a couple weeks now. I used to throw a lot as a kid, and got pretty good too with my awesome Yomega X-Brain.
So, a couple weeks ago, a student of mine (I'm a youth pastor) brought a butterfly to youth group, so I picked yoyoing back up again. I didn't even know there was such a thing as ball bearing yoyos and such until a couple weeks ago. So, I'm re-learning quickly, and loving every second.
Oh, and I'm definitely a One Drop fan boy.

Hello, my name is Brad. I have been yoyoing for about a year and a half now. My Kitteh Code 2 is one of my prized possessions. By the way, I can be found on some other forums under the same name.

Hey there everyone, my name is Garrett Warner. I'm a yoyoer from Northern Colorado and have been throwing for exactly 1 year, 2 months, and 9 days at the time of this post, and yes, I do keep track ;). I have had the privilege of growing in the yoyo world while learning and throwing with two of my favorite yoyoers, Patrick Canny and Zach Gormley. Perhaps the most important thing about me is that I am a complete and total One Drop fan boy.

I count the US National Yoyo Contest as the single greatest experience of my life. This is mostly because I was able to fulfill my inner most desires and spend an entire day with the One Drop team. Zammy, Paul and Graeme in particular, and also Clifton briefly.

At the moment my favorite jojo is my red Code-2 with red code-1 side effects. Though I may soon be getting a Soda Nickel Code-1 (which might become an apt replacement). My top three favorite yoyoers in order are
1. Petr Kavka
2. Paul Dang
3. Harold Owens III

Hello everyone, my name is Nicholas Herring from Olympia, Washington. I'm new on this forum and to the yoyo world, only been throwing for about three months, but I love it. I look forward to getting better, although I have no intention to compete. Only for fun here. Thanks David for the add.

Hello! Just finally joining after lurking for a while! Just recently got back into throwing after being out of it for quite some time. Last time I was throwing was back when Duncan butterfly's were the shiz. Thank god my 10 year old dragged up from the dungeon my old box of long forgotten treasures. Next thing you know we were waxing up some new strings and the magic was back! Soon we started checking out some new ball bearing throws. And now we're rocking some Onedrop love. Got him his first Code1 for his b-day and he hasn't but it down. I can't put my Summit down!

Nice to meet you all!

I'm member for some time, but never get to introduce myself.

My name is Frantisek, I live in Prague, Czech Republic. I started yoyoing at the end of 2010 and instantly got in love with yo-yoing. I'm active in Czech community and also run my own yoyo blog: http://yoyophile.blogspot.cz/

You can see me competing regularly on Czech contest and sometimes in near countires(Slovakia, Poland).

I get my first One Drop few months after I started and it became clearly my favorite brand. They were my main throws, used them at all contest(matching my One Drop t-shirt from Markmont). For long time(maybe even now) I was biggest and only fan of One Drop Yo-yos in Czech Republic, having to buy them from shops all around Europe. For some reason, local yo-yoers and main shops simply arent big fans of One Drop.

Few months ago I got into Yoyofficer team and my passion for One Drops come little down, but your yo-yos are still my most favorite(Burnside as pure competitive beast and Dang as most fun throw ever) and it's still my dream to be part of OD team.

Hello,

My name is Russ and the yoyo bug bit over a month ago when I saw a guy is new from the local movie theater and was in awe of his skills, so here I am a month later with a yoyo addiction and the same guy from the theater theater told last week about the rally and agreed to pick me up one since he was ordering one or two also and thanks to him I'm the proud owner of a lime ish green and black really!


I'm overjoyed so please forgive the poo grammar.

I look forward to getting to know the regulars and learn more about the mighty yo!

Thanks for having me!

-Russ

Hi all, I'm Rob, 30 from Tamworth, England . I used to throw back in about 2007ish not thrown for a very long time looking to get back into the hobby, amazing to see how things have changed over the past five or so years I have been away from the hobby.
