How to Do the Sleeper Yo-Yo Trick

Learn how to do the Sleeper yo-yo trick from four-time US National Yo-Yo champion and 2006 World Yo-Yo champion Paul Yath in this Howcast video.


The next trick I'm going to teach you is the follow up to the Throw Down, it is called the Sleeper. The Sleeper is a trick you use for other tricks. Basically, you start with a Throw Down, and the yo-yo stays spinning. And that is called a Sleeper. With the Sleeper, the stronger you throw, the longer it will stay spinning, or sleeping. With a good, strong throw, the yo-yo can sleep for minutes, up to ten minutes, depending on how strong you throw it. And that's the Sleeper.
