So a little over a month ago I came here for advice because I wanted to get into throwing, and I ended up (thanks to all of you) buying the replay pro and the first base and I love them and am getting my binds down pretty well and moving on to bigger and better things and its all quite exciting.
Now, I’m excited about this yo-yo thing and my birthday is in a few months. I decided I’d start looking for my first metal, stick a picture of it above my desk, and do the whole “spare change and a portion of my work money every week goes into a jar until I can buy this” thing.
But man, there are A LOT of metals out there. The absolute most I can stretch my budget is $70 and even that’s pushing it.
These are what I was looking at:
the C3 Level 6
YoYoOfficer Hatchet 2
YYF Shutter (very popular, I know)
YYF Czech Point
I guess my questions are:
which of these would be good as a first metal and why?
what are the different characteristics of these yoyos?
are there any others I should be looking at?
are any of these a terrible idea?
I know its early to be asking, but I like having a tangible end goal in sight and want to understand yoyos better. I realize it’d be best to try them myself, but being in the middle of rural PA, that’s not really an option.
