Check out some solid 2A play from Korean player Yoo Won Jun! (We don’t get enough 2A videos. More of y’all should learn 2A. When is Patrick Mitchell coming back?)
YoYoFactory has spent years in search of the perfect 2A looping yoyos. From the original Loop 720 to the 1080 and now the 2020, it’s been a remarkably patient game of testing and iteration until finally they’ve built what is probably the greatest looping yoyos ever made to date, by any company. In this video, they break down how the Loop 2020 works, how and why you should adjust it, and how to handle the equipment end of 2A. Once you’ve got that sorted, you can move on to the 10,000 hours of practice. You know…the fun part. 😉
(And as a bonus, here’s a video where multiple World Champion Shu Takada shows you how he sets up his Loop 2020s!)
