2. Perform a Chopsticks Mount (Land the yoyo between the string btwn. your thumb and index finger)
3. Let go of your counterweight
4. Pull the CW btwn. your thumb and index finger
5. Swing your hand around the yoyo
6. Re-insert the CW

    That is an alternate name for it. But in "yoyo terms" and in competitions, it is referred as 5A.

    so i've got a question. does the video need to be an instructional video on how to do a trick, or can it be a music video with a bunch of tricks?

    The requirements: - 30 second video - sign at the beginning - yoyo tricks - have a tip for at least one trick in the text - make it clear which trick the tip is for So you can go either way.

    Nice. Unfortunately, I think I might be doing split the atom for the contest.... I just need to find my yo-yo string and buy a better yo-yo. All I have is the AXLE elite ($39.99), The CrossFire ($19.99), and the very crappy Fire Ball ($8.00.) However that titanium yo-yo looks cool... I hope I win, but compared to you, I'm not sure if I have a very good chance.

    You are very good, my friend, and I also hope YOU win, if I don't.
