Hey guys, sorry to post another “which yo should i get” thread.
I currently have a Duncan Bumble Bee that I got not knowing anything about yoyoing (I had one when I was a kid and I recently had an itch to pick one up again). I have been going through the string trick videos on here, but it is nearly impossible to land the yoyo on the string, and it dies out pretty quick after. I can do quite of a few of the tricks in the beginner/intermediate section, but it is just time to upgrade to a yoyo designed for that kind of thing.
I have been looking at the Dark Magic because everybody seems to love it. $40 is at the top of my price range. Since it is on backstock right now, I’ve had a chance to look at other yoyos before diving in. I want something that will grow with me as I play. I don’t want to spend $15 on a yoyo that will only take me through the first few weeks of playing until I need to upgrade, but I also don’t love the idea of spending $40 right off the bat on a yoyo.
How comparible is something like the kickside to the dark magic? I would rather spend $40 once than $20 now and $30 on an upgrade later, and then $40 after that on another upgrade if I don’t have to.
Would something like the kickside keep me satisfied and not require an upgrade? or should I just cut my losses and spend the $40 upfront on the Dark Magic?
I am looking mostly at doing on string, off string, and possibly some counterweight in the future.
