I’ve been playing my Pulsefire for about a month now, maybe a little longer. I know not may do yoyo reviews anymore since everyone has their own tastes. I’ve posted a lot on here about how I’m currently playing my Pulsefire and such but thought I’d actually do kind of an impressions/mini review on it.
First off my interest in the Pulsefire came shortly after I bought a YYF Space Cowboy, began following this company on Instagram known as Axis Yoyos. Wanting a V-shape throw at around $100, I kept this yoyo under my radar.
Fast forward to 2 weeks later at my local yoyo club, I had obtained one after playing it. In the hand it felt solid, similarly to holding my Space Cowboy. After my first throw and trying not to mark it up yet as I was testing it out before buying it, I fell in love. It was easier to move around than the Cowboy and eventually my friend who had brought it along had made me an offer that I couldn’t pass up.
A month later I’m still constantly grabbing this throw and let’s look at why.
It has a very solid feeling in the hand and even on the throw but it doesn’t have that hard thunk one would expect with something solid feeling. It felt pretty nimble to move around and can feel that it is willing to accept some fast play. Afterall it is under 65 grams. It doesn’t feel like a lightweight or a heavyweight though but somewhere in between. I’m guessing it’s because it’s made of 7075 Aluminum with the SS rings.
The yoyo has a significant amount of power and will return to your hand with authority after a combo or in my case, slowly working through a trick and experimenting with different elements. It’s quite stable.
Should you get it? I honestly would recommend this to just about anyone really. It’s not floaty but it’s not a brick. It plays solid but it likes to move quick as well. I feel like you get the best of both worlds from this so if you’re one who likes a real solid throw or one who likes something quick, you’re in for a treat.
I know there will be a restock on YYE momentarily.
Until then, here’s a few pix if you haven’t looked at a Pulsefire yet.
