Christmas day left a smile on my face, and a new yoyo in my hand. No just another fundametal, or something cheesy. But what was left in my hand was a General-Yo 5Star v2 (USA edition,green on light green). Now its name is a 5Star, but is it 5Stars?
This yoyo is atonishing. It has a two tone look. What I personaly like is the two different greens. I find that most two-tone yoyos are two different colors, while this is two differents shades of the same color. Though the other thing what I really like was the logo. I really like the 5 with the star in it. I though it is deffinetly cooler than a simple 5 stars.
The feel of the 5Star in ground breaking, and so hard to expain. When i first helded the yoyo in my hand, it was SO smooth. Its nothing like the annodize on my Hectic or Dv888, which are a little sticky, in a sense, compared to my 5Star.
This yoyo has a very comfortable round butterfly shape. I find it rest in my hand perfectly, yet not to small nor big. Another great thing is if is comes in fast it wouldn’t hurt as much as my hectic.
Bearing and Response:
The bearing on my 5Star is dazzling. I have had no problems with this bearing. It out spins my SPECs and KKs. Plus i have not had to clean, or lube it. The respone was another positive thing to add to the 5Star. The One-Drop silicone Pads probably fit this yoyo the best. It provide tight binds, while keeping it unresponsive.
This yoyo play like no other. The grinds are phenomanel. It feels like your arm is lubed while grinding. I have gotten almost 6 second before it spun out on my arm! Its that good. Another up to ts play is its weight. Heavy yoyos are my personel favorite, though i find the cluck at the bottom a little annoying. Where as this yoyo is a light one, it doesn’t clunk when you throw it. But the wierd thing is although its light, it plays like a heavy yoyo on the string. Also since its on the light side and plays heavy, it also excedes at fast play too. Thiss yoyo also can take many string layers, and provide astonishing spin times, even on an OK throw. I also have had no vibe or wobble problems at all.
Well is it five stars?.. Deffinetly! Christmas probably wouldn’t have been as awesome if i hadn’t got this yoyo. This yoyo execedes at anything you throw at and will deffinetly be a favorite of mine. Congratz to Ernie on this yoyo.
