Floaty yoyos?


#1

I got a big pile of cash for my (early) birthday, so I’m wondering what yoyo I should get. I would prefer spmething floaty. Also should I get something now, or wait for the next run of yetis. Please make suggestions below $80 shipped
Edit: screw the $80 and under thing. I’ll make it $120 and under because it’s about time I need a high end throw


#2

I had a Yeti. Honestly, it’s not worth the hype. If you want floaty just get a Code 2 from the BST.


#3

I have 2 code 2s and although the shape looks like it would be floaty imo its not floaty at all. in my opinion float yoyos would be…

Summit
Avant Garde 2
Chief
Cascade esp w ul ses
Bonfire

have heard but haven’t played myself:

Wrath
Code 1
HOT

the thing is words like floaty and solid are very subjective. where one person thinks the code 2 is floaty
I find it almost the complete opposite, some people would say throws i listed they don’t find floaty but no one is wrong, so really its up to you and your definition of floaty ya know? I think my list is a good place to start. good luck


#4

Cliff is floaty.


#5

I would like an avant garde 2 (which I have played and loved) but I can’t find one anywhere but is the yeti floaty? I’ve been wanting a clyw but they’re all too expensive for me


#6

Code 2 is solid, not floaty; I think you’re the first person I’ve heard say a Code 2 is floaty :smiley:

With that said I suggest a Cascade or Summit


#7

The only thing is I need it to be $80 or under, cascade and summit are both a little too expensive


#8

Not a lot of floaty yoyos under $80, but check out the Kilter and Protostar, their about as floaty a yoyo as I’ve played under $80

The TOO Hot might be floaty as well, getting one next week so we’ll see


#9

I own a too HOT, it’s a great yoyo, floaty and it outplays my shutter, the reason I don’t use it is because it’s too big for my hands.


#10

Then try a YYO Kilter, it’s a little smaller and slimmer


#11

Try the Duncan Raptor. It has a very floaty, responsive feel. Not responsive like grippines, responsive like it does what you say. It’s my second favorite yoyo. And it’s it’s only, what, $40?


#12

The original 3YO3 Basslines were very floaty. I haven’t played the Bassline 2, but the specs are pretty much the same.


#13

Code 1 is floaty


#14

Code 1, OG Avalanche, Acrophobia, PerfectStar, Yeti, WM2, Bassline 2, Summit, Trancer, Bonfire, Seed, 2SickYoyos King looks like it is incredibly floaty, but haven’t played it yet.


#15

It sounds great, but I would like something that has a more odd shape, is there a place where I can find an avant garde 2?


#16

Diamondback is soo floaty that it feels light like it’s hollow. This may sound bad but with th light hollow feel makes it’s maneuverability and manipulation seemless


#17

I emailed yyf and they said they have a bunch of b-grade avant garde 2’s, I’ll probably get one


#18

Code 2 is not floaty. Code 1 is very floaty.

Under $80? I can’t think of any in particular. :frowning: The Yoyofficer Nifty seems like it’d be floaty for that price, but I’ve not played one.


#19

Wrath is kind of odd, and very, very floaty


#20

What company makes the wrath?
