Did you guys like the surge ir classic better?


#1

Hey, which one is better to you? I don’t know anything about the surge… Can you upgrade it like the classic? When you guys buy a classic/surge, so you just upgrade it right away? I dont think ill actually be buying one, I might because there cheap, but I still wanna know :slight_smile:

The Classic is much lighter and faster. The surge is much more solid and heavier. That being said, I think the classic is the superior yoyo, but they’re both excellent plastics.


#3

The Surge is already upgraded to play unresponsive out of the box


#4

I haven’t played the surge but I absolutely love the classic.


#5

So, can I replace the bearing with whatever unresponsive bearing? Like if I like Buddha ripple bearings, can I pop one of those in and its good as new?


#6

The surge comes upgraded the classic doesn’t. To upgrade the classic you just have to replace the bearing and response.


#7

yes you could do this, but it comes stock with a yyj speed bearing. only down side of the surge is the gap width being smaller, but unless you do a ton of string wraps you’ll be just fine for such a power house. and the playstyles of the two were mentioned above. I own both and they are both great and would recommend buying both at the same time with the pads and bearing with the classic, and enjoy two killer throws.
