Yesterday I was searching through boxes, drawers, and everywhere else for a certain throw I haven’t seen for a while.
Some of the old dusty boxes were a little bit like time capsules. I started remembering how much I had wanted certain models, and thinking how much the selection, quality and even my interests in throwing has changed over the years.
I have been lured into getting the latest and greatest new throw a bunch of times over the years, but the thing that looking through all my old yoyos got me pondering was, which ones really did deliver?
Lately a few of the newer YYF models are really helping me in general, models like the Edge come to mind. Over my long term learning though, there are a few real stand outs that got me past the plateaus everyone experiences. Here are mine, what were yours?
TK No Jive, probably the most helpful at my greatest time of need.
Custom Elite, smoothing out complicated old school string tricks, STM, frog in a bag, etc.
One Drop M1, carried it everywhere, really got my unresponsive game kick started.
YYF Horizon… one word, corkscrew!
