Better than the Protostar


#1

So back when the Protostar came out it was pretty much the best playing Plastic yoyo you could possibly get for the price.

But now-a-days, you can get some phenomenal throws for the price.

-YYJ Trigger
-YYJ Legacy 2
-YYJ Chaser

-YYF Onestar

-Duncan Raptor

-Yomega Maverick or Dash with C bearing

Anyone feel the same way I do?

The protostar is great, but I feel there are many better options.

Feel free to disagree!

I still think that the protostar is very very good. But the classic is evennbetter(for the value).


#3

Yeah.

I had the classic. It wasn’t my favorite but it played great


#4

the classic is good (one of my favorite throws) but I think it lacks that solid that the Surge has


#5

Hmmmm, I’ll have to try the surge.


#6

To be honest, I’m not too fond of my protostar. It’s extremely loud, it vibes, and grinds are hard on it. Other than that it handles anout anything. The onestar is a lot more fun to me, only downside is the weight. The spin times on it aren’t the best.

Better than the protostar?
Northstar :slight_smile:
My all time favorite plastic. Period


#8

yeah I like the northstar better too because of the Midwall :slight_smile: that’s what it basically is Jensen wanted a Proto with a Midwall (my thoughts)


#9

I’ve really been enjoying the alpha crash more

And Thats why I also adore the Summit :slight_smile:

Or ya know… You can like… Get a delrin.


#12

I really enjoyed the Classic, excited to try the Surge.


#13

I don’t disagree completely.

I agree the Protostar is great. What’s even better now is that there are now so many more affordable yoyos that are also great.


#14

finally someone else that likes midwalled yoyos!


#15

The alpha crash, yoyoofficer fit, magic yoyo n12 and some others come to mind.


#16

I still think the ProtoStar is worthy at that price-point, unlike say the DMII and DV888 which I feel are inferior. But it’s great that are now so many reasonably priced great playing yoyos to choose from.

I’m waiting for someone to mention a unanimous victor to wear the crown.

Protostar is 4 years old this August. It has certainly stood the test of time. It wasn’t made to be mistreated, beaten on or abused. It is a precision performer and still holds its own in any discussion. Real players recognized. For that, we thank you.

That being said, 4 years is a long time in yoyos. Few other performance yoyos stay at the top for that long and we don’t see this reign being broken. Look for a refresh coming to the protostar this fall.


#18

Lol, and I thought I was THE only one… It feels great to never be a lonely thrower… :slight_smile:


#19

Yeah, I am still a Protostar fan. The only other plastic yo-yo that I own that beats it is my V.

That sounds wrong, but yeah…


#20

What do you mean by unanimous victor?

Anyways I’m looking forward to this “refresh”
