Hello everyone! I am looking for a recommendation, and I enjoy everyone’s input. I recieved $100 as a present and was told that I had to buy a yo-yo with it (I love my grandma!). What should I get? To give you an idea of my tastes – I have a YYF DV888, Protostar, and Northstar, and HSpin Beysick, and a YYJ DMII. I really like the DV888 and the Protostar. The HSpin has a great size and play, but the silicon wears out too quick, and the yoyo does not play “dead” enough. The DV888 is a tad small, but it is useful in the technical manuvears. The Protostar is my all-around favorite, besides the fact that it cannot do any grinds; however, it plays amazing. The DV888 and Northstar play a little heavy, but the Protostar and Beysick play amazing.
There you have it. I am looking for something smooth, dead on the string, all-metal, and preferably something that does not have the tendency to play like a rock. I prefer normal to under-sized yo-yos, but I am open to any suggestions.
