So first off, this was the third yoyo I ever bought. I first purchased a YYJ KickSide, and then a hubstacked YYF PGM. The Protostar was the one yoyo I had always wanted. I must have watched that promo video with Paul Han and John Ando a dozen times
Anywho, I was very impressed when I got this throw. I decided to get a red, like the one John Ando uses, and I have to admit it looks great! Very vibrant especialy when playing in a bright room. It gives off the effect of almost glowing.
So I opened up the box and began to play. I went straight into some split bottom mount stuff, and was very impressed. The yoyo just kept spinning. It was so well balanced, and just kept going. It played very fast on the string. Played kind of floaty, but wasn’t over floaty. This was probably one of YYF best designs. I absolutely loved the feel in my hand.
Next I started doing tricks and the yo-yos shape made it really easy to land. I had used my brothers PSG and Asteroid, as well as my own PGM, and none of them play close to this. In shape comparison, the Protostar seemed like a cross between the PGM and PSG. It had the perfect angle and weight distribution for the ability to do any tricks you want. Anywhere from your first unresponsive yoyo to putting in your collection of $100+'s, this throw belongs in anyones case ;D
