Just remember something. If you guys decide to do your own self testing about which of your yoyos is ‘higher in float value’, remember to use the SAME string on every Yoyo.
Let’s say you open up your Yoyo bag and decide to throw 8 different yoyos in a row. Maybe a minute or two each. And then kinda calculate the order of Float for those 8 yoyos.
You can get a lot better ‘handle’ on which is a floater and which is a sinker, if you use the same string.
The string is an integral part of your initial perception/feeling of Float, when the Yoyo hits the bottom of the string on the throw down.
Especially if you take yoyos out of your bag that you play often and constantly change the strings. And compare them to a few yoyos you have in your active bag but seldom throw and even less often change the strings.
The yoyos with the fresher strings will hit softer on the throw down and move from segment to segment smoother because of the softer sensation from the flex of the newer string.
If you go from a Yoyo with a bouncy string to another with a Dead string, it will screw up your actual judgement.
Fresh bouncy string won’t necessarily make a slug of a Yoyo, Floaty. But a Dead string will make a clunkier Yoyo feel even less Floaty on the string.
So if you compare yoyos(in a row) just keep the string on your finger and put it around the next Yoyo in your testing.
Best results in almost any form of testing are achieved from only changing one factor at a time.
Here is a mini test<> get the oldest string you have and put it on a Yoyo and throw it around for 3 minutes. Then get a brand new string… Like a Kitty string for example(plenty of initial stretch in a new kitty string) and put the new string on the Yoyo. Then play the Yoyo again for 3 minutes.
