I have always been a fan of the older yoyos, pretty much beyond most of your guy’s era (Doc Pop Bolt, Dark Magic 1, Speeder, FH2, Mini Motu, etc.)…
But surprisingly I haven’t tried the FHZ, so I had to order it.
I honestly love it. It is seriously good. I immediately took out both of the friction stickers and replaced them with one thin Dif-Pad. Mostly unresponsive, but can still come back with a tug, pretty much where I wanted it. (If someone knows where to get Chaz Pads, PM me, because I haven’t been able to find them ever since Yoyonation’s store shut down).
I’m not sure if it’s because I’m “Old Fashioned” and like the Friction Sticker type response, or because I like small bearing throws, but I’m definitely going to get one or two more of these soon.
Don’t take this as a review, but more of a feedback toward the yoyo.
