I am playing my SPYY Addict Gen 1 (#036) with one responsive pad in. It is tug responsive while still being able to pull off most unresponsive throws.
Spencer Berry released the Walter as a tug responsive bearing yoyo for the purpose of being a chilled out just for fun throw to “shred” with.
With the Fixed Axle seeing a surge in popularity and an endless supply of new unresponsive throws available do you think there is still a place in the market for the responsive bearing metal throw outside of the beginner market?
The play style of these throws splits the difference between FA and Unresponsive and is a unique, at least for me, throwing experience.
Does anyone around here still rock the tug responsive throw?
An extra axle wrap on a unresponsive yoyo doesn’t count, I know we all play like that sometimes.
If you haven’t spent much time with the tug responsive metal I think you are missing out on a novel yoyo experience. Kind of like reading Encyclopedia’s and looking up words in a dictionary rather then wikipedia or google. Very retro but still fancy and fun.
