(Chase Baxter) #1

I know theres alot of post about “what to get for 5a” but I was wondering, what do you like? Right now I use a Genesis or Project 2 but mostly Genesis, I was wondering what a good yoyofactory 5a yoyo is, second, what do you like in a counterweight? Be sure to post, and your thoughts count!!!

I love my BOSS for 5a and I use a Spintop Button


eraser cw. just put a hole through it and cut off some till you get the weight you like. everyone should try it out :wink:

Its discontinued, but the catch 13 is awesome!
As for counter weights, anything fun looking and somewhat heavy (like 11 or 12 grams) is what I like

I’m not one to throw 5A but I like to use my Kickside, FHZ, and before I got rid of it my Lyn Fury (I had a love/hate relationship with that throw)


i use my pgm with a bouncy ball, my freehand 2 and freehand 2010 with dice or head, and maverick with bouncy ball
