I recieved the yoyo that got me started (the yoyojam Journey) as a gift, so I didn’t have to put that much thought into which yoyo I wanted to start with. A little while later, I decided to upgrade to a better yoyo since I wasn’t able to preform the trick combos I wanted on the Journey. Since I was still pretty new to yoyoing, it took me forever to figure out which yoyo to buy next. To make this process simpler, I had a few ideas:
. make a “level of play” chart (on a scale of 1-10, 10 being expert). Rate each yoyo with one of these numbers and give a brief description of what tricks should be easy at each number
. give yoyo classifacations. On the “yoyo stats” part of the info screen, tell what style(s) of play the yoyo is meant/best for (1a, 2a, etc)
. Have a recomended “next yoyo” chart. Instead of having to dig though forum posts, it would be helpful to have a list that basically has different yoyos in bold with yoyos that would be the next step up listed beneath it.
I think you are doing a wonderful job for people who have been yoyoing for a little while, but I think more could be done to help out begginners. Don’t take this the wrong way-I think this is the best yoyo site, but just like with any trick, theres always room for improvement ;D
Thanks for providing so much to all the yoyo players of the world!!
