I know, there are a hundred of these postings. I’ve read them all, so hear me out…
I bought a lyn fury and started throwing about 8 years ago, easy stuff - brain twister, double or nothing, mach 5… but never progressed much past that. The resources for learning weren’t as great as they are today…
So, a few weeks ago, I picked it back up and got “re-obsessed”. I can throw all the “intermediate” tricks and many of the advanced tricks - even with a fully plastic yo. I haven’t done any maintenance to the LF and it is very unresponsive - I bind every throw - which is fine, I’m used to it.
Are all my tricks ‘smooth’ - ha! by no means. But every once in a while I throw a nice smooth combo. (IE - Mcbride Roller coaster and finishes with a few matrix’s… or something like that)
So, now that you know my background, here’s the question:
Dark Magic 2 or DV888?
I think the DM2 would be a bit slower and heavier - maybe make those 1.5 mounts smoother and give some weight to tricks like wormhole. Also a little easier to hit the strings consecutively.
But eventually, I’ll want a full metal throw and I’ll want to play faster. I’m nervous it might be oppressively hard to land on the string while learning advanced/expert tricks.
Is it that much easier to learn advanced tricks on a DM2 than a DV888? Please help!
