Favorite Yoyofactory Throw

(David Romero) #1

As a complete fanboy, I gotta hear all the opinions.

MEtal Replay is a very fun throw, it’s different

  1. OG Northstar
  2. Protostar
  3. Aviator 2
  4. Nightmare
  5. OG Shuta

In terms of total long term industry effect?

Shutter, 888, and Genesis, probably. Honorable mention to Edge since it’s relatively new.

Most of my throws are from yyf. My favorites are:
kEDGE
Delrin wEDGE (while mine worked back in 2017)
Replay (beater) x2
Severe ( nice delrin )
888 ( misplaced it somewhere )
yotricks Sage/ One Star ( my first “good” yoyo that I used to learn a ton of basics and such on )

Ones I own(ed)
Shutter ( gave it away to someone in my yoyo club)
Space Cadet (my string couldn’t handle its power so it gave up. no longer works)
ND ( it’s not for me )
Horizon ( haven’t picked it up in a while )
Protostar ( feels like it belongs in the past )

I had a Shutter which I had mixed feelings about, I have since sold it and don’t miss it. I can’t see myself buying another Yoyofactory any time soon

Dv888 outsold them all and still doesn’t get a mention :thinking:

Too H.O.T. hands down for me. I’ve owned a ton of YYF. Most of them have been great performers, but they lack that extra something that makes them special. The Too H.O.T. has that extra something for me. Feels like it’s got a bit more soul and personality to it. :+1:t2:

OG Northstar also holds a special spot in my collection for nostalgia reasons.

I’d buy one of these instantly.

I might even make my own. I’ll make a low walled DV888 from POM just for fun.

Hands down, the Legend Wing.

I object violently to the Legend Wing being included as a favorite… anything. Most YYF stuff is quite good but… not this. I mean it’s not DV888 level crime against humanity kinda thing, but it is sooo phoned in. :telephone_receiver:

I’d actually love to see a big name yoyo manufacturer do serious woods, like Tom Kuhn level craftsmanship. I don’t know if I’ll ever live to see that happen though.

I’m not sure you’d realky like that if you don’t like the Legend Wing.

The Legend Wing is a very consistent wood yoyo, they are the best Fresh out of the box.
