So I’m looking at getting back into this stuff after fifteen plus years of being out of it. Some things appear to have changed (friction strips, wtf?), so I’m not sure whats the way to go these days. I have an old collection, but since some of the yoyos are 20 years old, I’d rather not damaged them
I’d like to get one or two basic throws to ease myself back into things. Suggestions?
-Do you know how to bind the yoyo?
Sorta (understand the idea, wasn’t able to do it very well years ago)
-Do you have a yoyo that you own or played with that you have liked very much?
Nothing recent, used to own some wooden Tom Kuhns & a silver Bullet, a few Duncan plastic, some Yomegas. Bullet was nice but a bit thin, yomegas too heavy Never toyed with friction stickers, pads, etc (replaced axels though)
-Do you have a preferred shape of the yoyo?
Probably butterfly, as long as its not huge. Classic alright.
-Do you have a preferred weight or weight distribution?
My old Tom Kuhn Wooden yoyos were a nice weight as was the Silver Bullet. Yomegas were a bit heavy.
-Do you have a price range?
$10-25? I’d like to maybe get 2 different types.
-Do you have a certain amount of yoyos narrowed down?
No, but if it were plastic I’d prefer it to be heavy duty enough to take some dings. Metal look neat but worried about dinging them too.
-What trick are you currently working on?
Convincing the wife to let me start up yet another hobby.
Thank ye all
