Lately, I’ve become very interested in Side Effects. The whole concept of being able to change the weight and look of your yoyo, while also making it practically impossible to strip the yoyo, I think is pure yoyo genius.
When I first got my Summit, I played it for a while and realized that it was a bit unstable, floaty etc. I like heavier, more stable yoyos, but the Summit really clicked for me. I didn’t put much thought into changing the Side Effects, but I am very glad I did!
Today I received my order of Green Spikes and Orange Domes. I popped the Domes in and was shocked at how much better the yoyo played for me, and how much better it’s weight fit my preferences. Then I popped in the Spikes. Dang. I haven’t played with then long enough to know for sure, but I think I just found my new perfect setup! The yoyo feels so much more… Right to me, I guess.
Have you guys been experimenting with SE’s? What’s your favorite setup so far?
