Genesis or catalyst?


#1

So, without price being an issue, which is the better yoyo? Also, the Genesis has a few pinpricks, but it still plays good so I don’t care. My order of yoyo preference:

Beat capped Raptor

Beat DV888

Beat uncapped Raptor

Alpha Crash

Token

I’m currently leaning towards the Fenesis… Hmm…


#2

I haven’t tried the genesis, but really want to. I actually didn’t like it that much… The genesis has more rim weight, as you can see in pics, its like “beefy” or something. But the catalyst’s shapes seems lke a shape many people would like. I might go with the genesis, only because soooo many people loved it. But the catalyst js probably a better deal…


#3

The Genesis gets my vote, unless you are concerned about getting a Catalyst, seeing as they’re discontinuing them. The Genesis has massive rims for long spin times, and is extremely stable. It’s a 5A beast as well, and is, in my opinion, on of the best yoyo YYF has ever made.


#4

Genesis = More stable and slower

Catalyst = Lighter, faster, floatier.


#5

Doesn’t the Catalyst’s finish allow for better grinds?


#6

Yes, the new Genesis have glossy finishes.


#7

I have both the catalyst is a grinding machine and great for horizontal play while the genesis has a great catch zone you can put a ton of wraps in it and it won’t die


#8

If you like technical play, Genesis.
If you like smoother, slack and whip type play, Catalyst. My vote goes to the Catalyst, I have tried both (and own a genesis if you want to buy…)


#9

It’s a Genesis+, actually. I forget what Catalyst it so.
