I haven’t done any yoyoing for about 15 years, and I want to get back into it. Problem is, I’ve been so out of the loop, I don’t even know where to start.
Back in 1998 my friends and I yoyo-d all the time and we got pretty good, even did some inter-school competitions in SoCal. Then I moved to Oklahoma in 1999 and couldn’t find anyone who was interested, so I just stopped doing it, as much as I hate to say it.
My main yoyo then was a Saber Raider, which I still have. I also used a Fireball, which I still have. But I imagine yoyos have gotten better since I was 13 years old, so I’m here for thoughts.
Now that I’m an adult I can say money isn’t an issue with buying a new yoyo, but I want to progress naturally like I did when I was a kid, so I’m not looking for anything outrageous just yet. I just want a general well-rounded yoyo.
From what I’ve read, I’ve narrowed it down to these: One, KickSide, Lyn Fury, Speed Maker, Journey, Legacy II, Raptor, Metropolis, Echo.
So, what would you recommend?
