As you know YYF and CLYW have done a collab and come up with Basecamp Yoyo, 3 yo-yo set. You can buy Jackknife and Expedition separately, but you have to buy both to buy Moonshine. If you were one of the first 40 to buy the set, you got a free Basecamp mug. I bought mine from YoyoExpert for a chance to win in the wristband giveaway, but no luck this time. :’(
So, I’m curious:
- Those of you who chose to buy a Basecamp yoyo, which one did you choose?
- On what basis did you choose which one to buy, and what sold it for you?
- If you tried all three, which one is your favorite of the bunch, and why?
I threw all of mine, and Jackknife is my favorite of the bunch. It plays fast, and has that concave cool looking cup design. That’s the one that suits me best. But, I think it has some of the same feel as Expedition. I think Expedition has just a tad bit more float to it, but it’s not like one of them is heavy and the other light, so they are not drastically different that way. Expedition has that A+ blast finish, and the blue color I got looks amazing. So, if you want the faster throw with the concave cup design, go Jackknife, and if you want that blast and a tad bit of float mixed in, go with Expedition. Moonshine was super fun, and unlike anything else I have in my collection. It came with extras, because it came with a small bearing in it. So, you get a longer axle and large bearing for it too. I prefer to play it with the large bearing, and when I want it more responsive, I just do that double loop around the bearing and presto! So, I doubt I’ll be using the small bearing in it.
I’ll be bumping this with some photos of my set. But, find me on Instagram where I’ll be posting them there first. Great job on the collab! I’m hoping they add more yo-yos to the Basecamp lineup in the future. I’m not sure if that’s the goal, but I sure hope so.
First, the packaging (more photos to come):
