Hi everyone! I just recently got a yoyo as a part of a raffle, and upon seeing all the kinds of things that can be done with what I used to think was a toy, I decided to really start getting into the world of yo. However, I currently am at a dilemma; I need a new yoyo. Most of the yoyos at my current disposal belong to a friend, and the ones that are mine are fairly cheap, made for beginners and have a very quick response time.
My current yoyo list:
-Duncan Wheels (slightly damaged in a bad attempt to mod)
-Auldey Phantom Wheel S
(All of the Auldey ones belong to my friend)
While all of these were very helpful in learning many basic tricks (trapeze, atomic bomb, zipper, etc.), I am looking for a new, preferably known brand yoyo that I can do more advanced tricks with. I am able to do most of the tricks in the up through the intermediate section and have dabbled in several of the advanced 1 tricks. I have fairly solid bind and throw (I think), but my breakaway moves aren’t that hot, so I was wondering if there were any yoyos that would be particularly good for an aspiring player like myself, leaning torwards 1A and 5A play
-Duncan Metal Drifter
-YoYoFactory Grind Machine
-YoYoJam Dark Magic II
Probably gonna go for the Drifter, not that much of a budget as a highschooler, but I’ll take any other suggestions! Thanks for reading!
