Draupnir or Sleipnir


#1

So… which should I save my money for


#2

Both are great yoyos. Draupnir plays a bit lighter and quicker than the sleipnir I find. Of course there is a pretty decent price difference between the two, so if you an justify spending a bit more for the draup, it could be worth it. I would say that the Draupnir would not be a yoyo I would have around as a daily carry where as a sleipnir would be more so, while alternatively if you are a player who wants to delve into sharper competition practice, the draup could be useful (not saying one is that much different over the other in terms of doing well in a competition though).

Either way you go, you are bound to be satisfied however.


#3

Both are great, but the Draupnir definitely feels faster, and really on a different level. I was eyeing the new Sleipnirs for a while but I want a new mountain bike so I’m holding off. In short, the answer is the same as you will get for any of the other “what yoyo should I buy” threads- both are good, get whatever you want and/ or can afford. Both will go down in the books as top notch throws.


#4

I imagine it would be like a better IronyJPX


#5

^The sleipnir?

Honestly, Draupnir is probably “better”

It being Bi-metal makes it like an “upgraded sleipnir” in my eyes (haven’t played a sleipnir but have heard alot about it)

But with its price tag, a sleipnir at almost half price might be more appealing.

So, do you want good for $100
or better for another $100


#6

Sleipnir will be different from the irony but not really better

Draupnir will have some obvious performance increases and differences though besides just the shape


#7

Would anyone recommend a Palpitation?


#8

There’s a segment of the yoyo world for whom competition-oriented feel and performance is everything. A large majority of those people will recommend the Palpitation. :wink: It’s regarded by many as the best yoyo in its category right now.

Me, I’d rather a Leviathan 5, but I’m quirky that way.


#9

So the Palpitation is a better buy than the Draupnir? If so i’m a fan of Takeshi anyway


#10

Can you give is a desc of how you play/ what style you are trying to achieve?

Are you more of a takeshi/zach or a hiroyuki/iori


#11

Some say palpitation and some say draupnir. At that point it comes down to whether you want something lighter or heavier.


#12

Palpitation being heavier of lighter


#13

Palp heavier Draup light

Palp more stable(I think) and maybe a little more spin time

Draup is faster and lighter. More horizontally capable.


#14

I don’t know which I like better though :confused:


#15

AHH those are my 4 favorite players! I guess ill go with Draupir


#16

I don’t think the sleipnir or the draupnir are in stock anywhere anymore.


#17

I would be waiting for a new run


#18

Lol :slight_smile:
Maybe using players was bad; was meaning to point out speed/style of yoyoing associated w/ the yoyo

Also, i hope the term of “heavy” didn’t sway you away from the palp.
It’s like comparing a classic to a shutter, the shutter is “expensive” compared to it, but in hindsight, it isn’t.
