...and out of nowhere... unexpected yoyo want!


#1

Ever pass on a yoyo so many times thinking, “nah, not for me” or “that one doesn’t suit me at all” (for whatever reason). Many months later, suddenly you just look on a whim, and realize your tastes have changed and that you’re starting to burn for one after all. :wink:

For me it’s the MonkeyfingeR Gelada. I won’t go as far as to say I disliked it, but I just don’t think it did anything for me, for a while. Today I happened to be on MFD’s Facebook, looked at a few of their photos, which prompted me to come look at the Gelada listing here…

Now I’m all, “WHYYYYYYYYYyyyyyyy???” There are still a few GREAT colours left, too. But add that to my short list, and I can’t get’em all!

(incidentally, short list is now:

MFD Gelada
SD Flow
DS Pride (when it comes out; based on prelim info, I want one already, but we’ll see!)
OD Chik (the new One Drop)
G2 Triton
more SPYY in general…
)

Anybody else get ambushed by a surprise yoyo they thought they didn’t want and then suddenly desired?


#2

This is going to sound strange to most but I felt the same way about the Chief up until a week ago. Now I want one.

I know exactly what you are saying.

Not much longer on the prides.

Dan received them from the machine shop two days ago. Awaiting ano now.


#4

Something Angle for some reason. I have never really considered that yoyo and then it just hit me. To bad I’m broke.


#5

There’s just sOMEThING about it, hmm?

hahaha. Sorry, I had to. ;D


#6

U trade?

As fr me sine // saw


#7

Chik is a great great yoyo. Trust me you want one…
Most of the new one drops out are on my wants. Picked up a triton, should be here soon. But other than that I haven’t wanted too much other than some impulse off looks


#8

Me too. I was looking at the AC and then decided to look at the Chief and then suddenly wanted one.


#9

protostar, dm2, Chief…


#10

Yeah 3! The picture when you see it is the black one, which I don’t like the look of for some reason. Once I actually clicked on it (about a month later) I loved it!


#11

yes I though I was the only one ;D


#12

It may sound odd, but I really want a Walter. I’ve always thrown nice, standard 1A and have enjoyed it. The more I get into regens, though, the more I want a responsive throw made for them!


#13

For the longest time I’ve hated full sized throws. Now I want a Burnside incredibly bad, and a Capless.


#14

I suddenly wanted every newer REC REV Model :o
Like the:
Sine//Saw
Silly Goose
@
f(x)
Frequent Wave(I know this one isnt new)
I also all of a sudden want a Pink Trigger ever since I saw one of Shadowz videos. It looks so cool that I think I’ll order one tonight…


#15

Cool. Just end up getting something you KNOW you’ll love.


#16

No. Sorry


#17

im over here like…

spyy pistolero
yyf new prostar
G2 triton
yyf G5. I miss my g5 so much

I was gunna get a prostar but now they got the new one so I was all like “yo!” hahahaa


#18

I was that way with the crucial a la mode. was it just passed it by. tried it passed it by. then i get a trade offer to own one and Im not looking back and regret waiting till now


#19

What the heck, Greg? I just unexpectedly bought a Revenger. That meets the “more SPYY” part of my shortlist… :wink:


#20

It’s happened, but it’s usually the exact opposite that happens to me
