I have two already and my informal review is this: It is a terrific entry in the plastic yoyo category. IMO, it belongs in the same conversation as the Recess First Base, the Speedaholic, and the YYF Replay Pro.
Honestly I’m not the biggest fan of video reviews. There’s usually a lot of info I don’t really need to know so I prefer more of the highspeed yoyo review style because I can skip to the parts I’m interested in. Here’s a quick review I did for the caveman go.
Here’s my review of the Shutter Wide Angle on YYE:
I originally got this yoyo as a b-grade for an anodization flaw, but it has still become a daily player, if not my #1 throw. This yoyo manages to be good at finger-spins (probably good at horizontal if I could haha) and technical tricks despite the extra width. The colors it comes in are some of the best anno combos I have seen for a yoyo at this price point, and it is solid throw. Shutter Wide Angle would also be a very good yoyo to get multiple of for competing, if you do that sort of thing. The only negative I can think of is that if you already have the Shutter that this might feel a little repetitive. I don’t personally have a shutter but that it what I might think would happen. Also, if you aren’t a fan of wide yoyos, check out the Shutter.
TL;DR/Summary: If you’re new to unresponsive, or just are craving a new throw, this is where it’s at.
Here’s my review on the Taurus…
I basically do reviews on my YouTube channel in HINDI but I’m comfortable in doing them in English too…!
This is one of my older videos and definitely I’ve improved in making reviews … (as I’ve upgraded my setup recently) hoping for the best ig : @indian.yoyoer
