What throws that cost $50 bucks or less win for being the best bang for your buck? Feel free to include throws that didn’t come out this year, but are still available for purchase.
I figure this may also be helpful for people that got some Christmas cash and are wanting to make their dollar stretch.
And for the throws mentioned not still available, it’ll give you something to shoot for on the BST.
I have three.
The yoyo factory lowerKase. It is a steel undersized throw, they made 200 of them I believe and sold them this past summer for $30 as they had a very minor vibe. Never did I think I’d see a steel of a deal like that.
The next was not made this year, but had a price drop to $19.99 recently, and it is the yoyofactory Skyline. These things were about $120 back when the OG came out. Extremely fast play without the stacks, and so much fun with them.
Duncan Freehand 1 - Speaks for itself. Before the recent rerelease, there is no telling what you’d have paid on the BST.
Nominating throws from previous years feels a little weird seeing how many great budget releases did release this year. May as well put the spotlight on the awesome stuff that’s doesn’t get discussed as much post release.
C3 put out some really great stuff with the Laevateinn, Windoundary, and Bastet II. There’s something for everybody within this price range. Yoyofactory also did great in a similar way with the Spotlight, Uppercut, Essence, and even managed to get a well regarded bi-metal into the <50 USD budget range with the KO. Duncan’s output this year was also great but much more narrow, the Freehand One AL is my favorite yoyo of the year in this range, but as a highwall organic it’s a lot more of an acquired taste. The plastic Freehand One though feels like an especially good release, with a price point low enough that people can easily recommend it as a very first yoyo. The YoyoPalace Code was also great but feels like it was overshadowed in the west at least by nature of being from a less popular company in a market flooded with great options at this price point.
True, but the deep state (49.99) I believe meets the ability to be budget and flex worthy. Can’t remember what the deeper state retailed at, but I assume something similar and would fit the bill here.
@mable I agree with you on just keeping it to 2021 would have been ideal, but with so many awesome throws from the past being put on deep discount along with many of the newer users here being kids on a limited budget, it would potentially help put some amazing throws in their arsenal.
exact and many customers and also many producers should understand what these objects really are, for quality, materials, colors … and at what prices they are offered.
Here you buy the substance, not the hype or the fairy tales.
I am loving how they are putting side effects on throws and selling them for a budget price. They really are something special and I’m glad they are around. I have had many of their throws in the past. Cc urgently only have a deep state and have a deeper state on the way in a trade. I have a little holiday cash and was secretly trying to find a nice way of spending 50 bucks on a throw for myself, lol. You might have just helped me pull the trigger.
