I was looking at maybe buying a G5 or Paul Kerbel Edition Skyline. Here is what I prefer:

  1. I like any size yo-yo.
  2. I prefer an H-Shape yo-yo.
  3. I do like silicone response or anything not real responsive.
  4. I do not like to mod my yo-yos.
  5. I like any weight.
  6. The color does matter.
  7. I like to do fast, smooth, and slack tricks.
  8. My price range is 130$ and below.
  9. My skill level is advanced to expert.
    I used the guide Samad posted: http://yoyoexpert.com/forums/index.php?topic=4423.0
    What do you guys think?

It will mosly depend on wether you like large sized yoyos or small yoyos, what is your current favorite? Do you like its size?


#3

Skyline. The G5 won’t handle fast tricks as easily as the Skyline.


#4

I mainly use a M1 for my regular tricks and my DM to practice Lacerations. I am leaning towards the Skyline anyway.


#5

Well, Augie’s favorite yoyo is the G5+. He goes really fast, and I never see him using the Skyline, yeah, G5+ is a bit different from the G5, but as far as I know it is the same design.
But acoording to this:

You would like smaller yoyos more, so I reccomend the Skyline for you.


#6

Gm user is right, most of the yoyos can be fast.

Happy Throwing! =]


#7

But the Skyline was made for more speed and agility. Any yoyo can be fast, but Augie is a pro, so obviously he can make any yoyo go fast.


#8

I know the Skyline was made for speed, I was just saying that the G5 can go fast as well. Plus, I reccomended the Skyline for him too. Sorry for the confusion.


#9

sigh It was only in my opinion…

Happy Throwing! =]

Going to your original post:

Was your original opinion?

Samad is right. Based on a Yo-Yo’s specs, it can vary different levels.

                                        -BUT-

A Yo-Yo can move fast or slow depending on the player. A fast player can have a really heavy Yo-Yo that is known for being slow, and he/she can beat the snots out of it goind 100 mph on The Matrix.

And, a Yo-Yo can be really light, known for it’s speed, and have a slow player using a fast Yo-Yo.

Everything depends on the player. The throw, the agility, the string landing, speed, etc. :slight_smile:

#14

Nevermind, I got a blue VK for $99.99 from YoYoNation.

Congratulations, hope you like it!


#16

Yeah, you should go with the Skyline.

BTW, what does VK stand for?


#17

Necro! Just kidding. :slight_smile:

VK stands for Vashek Kroutil.
