I am currently trying to master finger spins (my only non-responsive yoyo is a Horizon). I have gotten spin part down and am able to do the laceration bind successfully about 10% of the time. I know with more practice I will get it down.
My question is about what makes a yoyo good for finger spins? Is the concave cup of the Horizon better than a flat surface? Does writing on the flat surface affect things?
I am thinking of getting a higher end, bi-metal. I have heard that the Horizon plays very well (which I agree with, but have nothing to compare it to), but want to see the difference for myself. And the Bi-Metals look really cool ;D
The iYoyo Steel looks like it is made for finger spins, and people seem to say good things about it. But I am also looking at the iYoyo FiRROX and the Sengoku yoyos - but they have the flat surfaces with writing/engraving on them - so i don’t know how that affects things.
Is there another model I should be looking at?
