This is my first review so bear with me. Feedback is greatly appreciated.
Let’s start off with specs
Diameter: 55.0 mm / 2.16 inches
Width: 46.0 mm / 1.81 inches
Gap width: 4.20 mm / .17 inches
Weight: 64.3 g
background info (but you probably don’t care): One day I stumbled upon $35. I decided to get some plastics so my Superstar didn’t have to be dented so many times from 5a accidents and misplaced glass lamps. So anyways long story short, I now have two PSG’s.
Feel in hand: 7/10 Some may find the shape of the PSG a little awkward to hold but it didn’t really bother me.
Feel on the string: 8/10 I have only noticed a slight vibe but it is really easy to tune out, especially when you are focusing on intense string tricks. However, for the price, it is really not so bad.
Playability: 9/10 When I first got this yoyo i thought, “Eh, it might sleep for a minute,” but this thing sleeps amazingly. I did notice that it does seem to want to go a tad slower, but can be pushed to go faster. I was also a little concerned about the stability due to the light weight and plastic. I have to admit, it is not the most stable throw out there but it can get you where you need to go.
Comparison to high end metals: 9/10 Although there is slight vibe, this thing is pretty amazing. I usually practice my freestyles on my Superstar or CODE 2 and I have one I have been working on right now. With the freestyle, there is usually barely enough spin to get it to return (in other words, push the yoyo to its full potential in sleep time). When I tried it on the PSG, I could do the exact same freestyle without adjustments. Stability and sleep time were not a problem.
Binds: 7/10 Binds can be a little slippy. Sometimes with a sloppy bind the yoyo snags then drops down and sleeps again. However, with a strong throw and a strong bind this is not usually a problem.
I also got this yoyo so I could learn some 5a without risking my metals. It still works AMAZINGLY and the peace of mind is nice.
Overall, if you are considering getting a yoyo to bring around or do some 5a with, this would be an excellent choice. I am so impressed I am thinking about getting more in the future. Overall, I would say 8/10.
Also, many people say that you should change the bearing and response, but I find it to be pointless and a waste of money. The bearing and response fork FINE.
