I have been really enjoying the Alleycat 650b! Overall the Deep State is my favorite, but not by much at all.

I think it Depends on what you like.
I like the DS, because I think the slightly larger gap is more conducive to string tricks. It seems like it would be a little too unresponsive for Loops and Moons, but the response is so predictable, that once you get used to it, it’s pretty good for that!
I’m still getting to know the new AC, and I really like it. Maybe even over time it’ll be my fav.
I think the OG AC might be better at Kick Flips, but I’m terrible at those. I had a real hard time doing Moons and Loops with it, so that was a bit of a turn off for me. Still it’s a great yoyo, and a lot of fun.
The Moon Shine is a blast too, and probably the best at a lot of the fixie stuff. The gap is just a bit too small for a lot of other stuff IMO.
I’ve got them all, and I’m keeping them all! I’ve got 2 DS, as I had to have the Copper one…
Don’t have a Flying V.
