If you want the regular ones, then get the regular ones. As silly as some people may think it to be, I also feel that if you don’t like the look of something, why spend your money on it? If you like the colors of the regular ones, then by all means, I completely feel that is sufficient enough reason to go that route.
What you might give up by going that route is a bit of spin time and a bit of forgiveness on bad throws or landings. These are trivial issues. If you’re not playing clean anyways, no amount of extra weight can compensate.
Also, not to name drop, but before Josh Yee got picked up by MadHouse, he was using PSG’s for 3A anyways. I don’t feel he was simply doing this as part of his “use a cheap yoyo, it’s the thrower not the yo” thing, but because I think he felt that for how he played, this was an ideal solution for him. Now that he’s on his own again, odds are he might be dropping back to more affordable yoyos.
I have both a regular and GEM PSG. I do intend to get a second of each. What I ultimately decided to use when I get into 3A is yet to be determined. I have a pair of Shinwoo Techno 2’s, YYJ Classics and soon a couple of pairs of PSGs that will around for learning 3A.
