This is another 5A classic trick, however…
The Electric Fan trick is one of the most over used tricks in 5A yoyo play.
Still though, it is one that you should know as it teaches the player how to keep a yoyo and counterweight moving at the same time, a fundamental skill of the style of play. Learn this one, but don’t rely on it too much.
It’s a different motion that what we’ve learned thus far, this time we are going to summersault the yoyo, but instead of a 360 or 720 were we let the counterweight go, we are going to pinch the string somewhere in the middle and pinwheel the counterweight while somersaulting the yoyo. Because the yoyo and counterweight are drastically different weights getting these two to rotate at the same speed shows you’ve got a good control.
