These are your titaniums you choose your throw here they are all amazing

Remember these are all my opinion. Many of your choices should be based on preference. I hope this helps.


The Whip doesn’t come with two bearings, just a regular size C. also, i suggest capitalizing the throw names, so they stand out more to someone who doesn’t want to read the whole thing. it also makes it flow better when it’s separated. And the Asteroid and PSG are two great 16 dollar throws you forgot
but anyways, nice guide!


ok ill edit it i thanks for telling about the whip and the adegle stuff i completely forgot about those


lol, the dang is also a great throw. and the burnside. and the dv888. and the Dropbear. and the Evil-yo. and tons of C3 throws are good. like Berserker. and G2’s throws, the nessie and albatross. but it’s your personal opinion, not mine ;D


Yes they are all amazing i was just giving people a baseline of what to look at


This was a great idea! We needed this :p. Organize it by price, but with yoyo subcatagories instead of just a big paragraph that skips around. Like this :
PSG- blahblahblahblah
Lyn Fury -blahblahblahblah
Asteroid- blahblahblahblah


I might change it to that if i get the time

Good. We needed an updated buyers guide. But I was suprised to find no Dv888 in the $40-$60 price range. That should really be there.


hows this

(SR) #10

That’s better. I see you organized it better that it was too which is great. One thing I would do is use your bold, italic, underlining, size and color features to make it even easier to read. But otherwise this is fantastic.


so should i just bold/color the names and price categories or other things

(SR) #12

Hmm… I would say bold and up the size on the price ranges. Also bold and underline the name of the yoyo, and delete the space in between the name of each yoyo, leaving the space in between price ranges. Oh and dont forget to proofread and all that good stuff.

Also, I would change the title and make a little introduction. Then I think you’ll be set.


thanks for all of the help i really want to make this the most helpful it can be


Do you think people may be confused this is an official yye guide because of the title?
