5A: PGM or DM? Or other?

:wink:


#2

Neither!


#3

Why?
I am using my DM at the moment, but I prefer the PGM over it.


#4

I like undersized or small bearing yoyos.

IE: Hectic, 888, Skyline, M1, Trainwreck, Trainwreck 2.0

DM is huge and PGM is a little too big. And I hate hubstacks.

I want to say PGM. Plastic is always a good feel for 5a, and hubstacks were invented focusing on 5a, so they’re certainly a plus.

…gasp!

(never tried dm but i like my pgm)


#7

Silicone a Lyn Fury and it makes one heck of a 5a player, Just the right weight and size I think.

Plus, I do think it was used to the 5A freestyles last year at worlds, if I remember right.

i say the PGM because they are cheaper and smooth, But its my preference because i dont like doing 5a with metals(scared to ding it)


(Connor) #9

I had one…then it hit a tree…didnt end well

I have heard Kicksides work well. Some people prefer to buy two to get double silicone response.

small bearing is a good thing to take into account but you also want tight binds and something easier to catch


(Connor) #12

Thats something that always confused me. Why Small bearing for 5A?


#13

Well, 5A players generally have their yoyo sleep longer and the yoyo is slowing down lot by the time they bind. Small bearings are a lot easier to bind, so most people like 'em for 5A.

I prefer a Lyn Fury.
good, cheap plastic yo-yo for 5A.
