Good Throws: 2000-2005


#1

I’m trying to remember many of the yoyo’s I had back during this time, ones of decent quality and better, and was hoping some of you could jog my memory.

Some are still made today, just updated versions (such as Spinfaktor).

I’ll start with some of the ones I remember:

Team Losi:

  • Grim Sleeper
  • Cherry Bomb
  • Silver Series (chrome plated versions of the above)
  • Da Bomb

YYJ:

  • Spinfaktor
  • Matrixx
  • Hitman
  • Big Kahuna
  • Dragon Jam
  • Night Moves

Yomega:

  • many of those made then are still with us

Superyo:

  • Typhoon
  • Renegade (black, clear, glow versions)
  • Invader
  • Samurai
  • Sonic Spin

Dif-e-o:

  • Dif-Fly and a number of others from then are still available. I just got a Dif-Fly, and it was
    unresponsive. When I had one back then, it was responsive.

Duncan:

  • many are still with us, but here are some interesting highlights…

  • Avenger

  • Ballistic

  • Orb

  • Trans-AXtion

  • Cold Fusion (Proyo) - would love to get a GT Butterfly CF…

  • Mondial

Please feel free to copy, add, and repaste!

Thanks -

Didn’t remember the Dark Magic back then, but it was there, starting in 2004.


#4

The G&E and Pyro both came out prior to 2006, no?


#5

Duncan Mg
Anti-Yo Fluchs
Underdog?


#6

Oh, one favor, please…

Write out the full name of the yo and the manufacturer. Some will be known to me, but some will either have been forgotten or ones I didn’t know about. Might also be helpful to others.

Just so I can be clear on each make and model.

Thanks again!

I know Proyo/Playmaxx was out of the picture in like 2001 but from 98-01 they put out a ton of popular models that are probably worthy of being part of this list. Same with some of the Spintastics stuff, although I only owned a couple of those.


#8

There was also the plug-in and I believe the roo-yo was around that era

Edit:
After checking these seem to fit the bill
Any Happy Yoyo Quicksilver
Bio Malleus
Most of the Buzz-on line
I believe the Barebones was that era
Metal Hitman
Handquake by hspin as well
Kyo immortalis, immortalis 2, phi, kyotu
Oxy 3 and I believe the Oxy 4 was here in 05 but can’t remember for sure
Double checked and Roo-Yo was that era
There was yoyojoca which was basically a clone of the oxy 3


#9

The Immortalis and Plug-in were BA yoyos.
