Sorry I don’t think I’ll be able to get a yo-yo like velocity or classic or reply because of the outrageously high shipping, as I live in Asia. I recently met a person who’s selling me his yoyos, and he offered the LF, Zannavi, Duncan Throw Monkey, FHZ, Zero,and YYJ Matrixx. I don’t think I’ll get any Duncan as they require high maintenance, and I won’t be able to buy more friction pads (unless they are vastly better for me, I won’t buy a Duncan). Right now, I’m down to the zannavi and LF, as I heard they are good for beginners to intermediate and even higher up.
I read that the zannavi had an adjustable spacer which could change it from tug responsive to bind, but LF being the overall better yo-yo, so is there an actual comparison? I just wanna know which one is more suited for me.
I would get the duncan freehand and yoyojams if you have the money, you would like to, and you feel that they are at a reasonable price. Duncans can be run with worn out friction stickers, and if you want to keep any yoyo running, you need string, lube, and pads or silicone no matter what you have. You might also check to see if their are any yoyo stores you could get to. Maybe this one? Wanchai shop:

Hope I helped.
