Actually the yo-yo needs to keep spinning. The gyroscopic stability is necessary to catch the string and not rotate off(perpendicular to) the string.

I really don't care if it is spinning or not, if I tried to do any of those I`d end up hogtied.


Odd fact: Most people know that the Yo-yo was a weapon in the philippines in the 1500`s, but ancient greeks were known to play with them as far back as 500 BC and the Chinese had a similar toys like the diabolo as far back as 1000 BC.

I watched the World Yo-yo Championship at a pub when I was 21. It started off kind of lame, but with each drink it slowly became the most badass thing we had all ever seen. By the finals, every TV in the place was showing the championship, and every dumbass in the building was chanting "USA" as the American brought home first place.

It was great, stupid fun.
