Hey everyone, this is my first post so please bear with me.
First, some background. I’m relatively new to yoyoing, I started yoyoing at the age of 30 about 5 months ago with a (previous generation) YYF Velocity, then I upgraded to a Shutter 1.5 months ago. This upgrade was a big success as now I made a lot of progress with side mount trick basics which were almost impossible to master on my Velocity. The smoothness and stability of the Shutter was much more forgiving when practicing new tricks. I was able to make progress with the Shutter at least by an order of magnitude or more compared to the Velocity. Now I’m at the level of practicing cold fusion and gerbil. My goal is to make steady progress on the 1A competition trick ladder and learning new tricks.
I’m just wondering how much would a high-end metal like YYF Genesis, Superstar, yoyotricks Civility or similar throws increase the speed of my learning compared to the Shutter at my current level.
Thanks for your input!
