Some may be older yoyos that were still being sold then; others may be wooden yoyos new back then that are still being made.
There are some very good, newer model (began production in the last 5 years) wood throws, but I would prefer to leave them out of this particular discussion, thanks.
For me it was a Newton yoyo. I really liked it, performed well. I got another Newton recently and it doesn’t measure up, unfortunately.
What’s your favorite wood from those times?
