Seriously, is there a better yo-yo out there?
I have a '09 Aqua 888 that I find myself throwing more than most, because it’s almost like cheating. Smooth as silk, sleeps forever, hubstacks, and the really weird effect of correcting a bad throw within a few seconds. Leave it to Yo-Hans to come through with the goods.
This Aqua has seen better days, and I’ve only had it a few months now. It’s got some scuffs and dents from some ridiculous hits. Still spins completely smooth. No wobble, no vibe. Haven’t changed the axle or bearing, and still on the original pads.
I’m looking up at the weird “top shelf” on my computer desk, and there’s all sorts of nonsense up there. I can visibly see three yo-yos sitting up there, though. In order, a Spyder, a dark blue '09 888, and my Ghost Pyro.
I’m amazed with myself about which one I’d rather throw at any given time. There is no amount of money I wouldn’t pay to have my Ghost Pyro play like my 888, and I love it more than words.
Ok, I’ll stop jocking YYF now. Just had to get that off my chest.
