Hi guys, I’ve recently got back into yoyoing. Ive been learning everything on my Duncan Metal Drifter and I feel that it’s time to try a better yoyo. While I like the undersized characteristics of the drifter, being light, rounded shape is comfortable in the hand, and fairly easy to learn on, I think its time for a more unresponsive throw that doesn’t tend to snag on binds and is more stable on longer tricks without slowing down or “waking up” lol.(not sleeping long enough) I am not sure what limits a yoyos size to undersize, but I have owned a Yomega Xodus ll in the past and that thing was too big and awkward for me(Diameter: 67.22). I’ve been considering OD or YYF because I’ve heard great things about both brands(also a lot of hate towards YYF haha) . I initially looked at YYF because of the rave reviews and the brand name is all over the place, but I started to look more into the OD line after hearing more about them, and let’s face it, I usually am an “underground/ against the big hype” type of guy.
I am looking for a good 1a yoyo. I’m leaning towards a roundish shape and (smaller than a dang xodus ll)size because that’s what i liked about my drifter. My price range is $50-100.
side note not related to performance: I love the color purple, not a necessity, but a plus!
What have you guys tried? Do any of your fav. throws fit? What would you recommend for me?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!
