The Trigger is a great, shape and weight balance for 5A, but if it hits the ground or hard surface on the edge of those thin rims, that’s it, CRACK! and you’re done. I have 2 Triggers that I play a lot, but I play them for 1A.
You might have better luck with the Trigger than some, but everyone I’ve known who is complaining about them breaking, it’s been due to playing it for 5a.
So, if you’re gonna do it, my advice: Play over carpet and grass. That should greatly extend the life of your yoyo for 5A drops.
One of my friend tried to do a kick bind on my trigger, and then it hits the floor so hard like there is no tomorrow.
Guess what, it’s nothing.
It’s kinda like an offstring yoyo that bounces when it hit hard surface, can’t even imagine it cracking but if someone does then I don’t know.
