Good yoyo under $60


#1

Hi. I am a beginner yoyoer and this is my first ever topic. I am currently looking for a yoyo under $60. I am new to yoyoing so I just want a good yoyo overall. So far I have looked at the Di Base, X Con Pro, the Halo, the V, and the G Funk. Any suggestions are appreciated.


#2

From those I would go with the dibase. I haven’t played one but I’ve heard very great things. Also I would strongly consider the Werd hour, as long as they are still in stock.

If you’re a beginner go with the Yoyofactory One, yoyojam journey, yoyojam lyn fury, or yoyojam kickside

When you get better and want go into unresponsive play get a Yoyofactory Whip, Northstar or Protostar, or a yoyojam trigger for good cheap plastics.

The yoyojam Dark magic II is also a good choice

Avoid the Grind machine if you just want it for hubstacks.

When you want your first metal look into a Yoyofactory DV888, werrd hour, crucial a.y.c.e, etc.

There are so many yoyos out there and so many companies. I listed Yoyofactory and yoyojam mainly because those are the companies i know more about.

My friend has a hour and i didnt really like it. I honestly dont know why maybe it was the feel of it. Also i should’ve mentioned that im looking for an unresponsive yoyo.


#5

So you’re not a beginner? Like I said before, the Northstar, protostar, or trigger would be good choices and they are only 35$ and lower.


#6

I started with the DM2 and it was great, but I grew out of it quickly. Now I have been throwing the dv888 for months.


#7

Man, disliking the hour. Haven’t heard that yet.

If you didn’t like the hour you must like organic shapes. Get yourself a ta1s.


#8

Protostar!


#9

I consider myself a beginner because i only started yoyoing a month back but in terms of skill I can do everything up to advance part 2 except for 3 tricks. Also I should say that Im only getting a metal/bimetal/delrin yoyo so im not interested in a regular plastic yoyo


#10

Don’t make the mistake of assuming a yo-yo is superior simply because it metal. To call throws like the Northstar and Protostar “regular plastic” is to do them a huge disservice. The Northstar, Protostar and even the Trigger out perform many aluminum yo-yos on the market.

I am going to throw my two cents in for some Duncan yo-yos. The Echo, Metropolis and even Duncan’s Raptor are very fine yo-yos that come in well under your $60 benchmark price tag. (Contrary to rumors spread about, the Raptor is a completely unresponsive throw.) If you were to spend just a few dollars more YYF’s Genesis and C3 Design Capless are also great at just over $60.


#11

This man knows what he’s talking about. By the way the 2010 world yoyo contest was won with a Northstar. Just because you wear Jordans doesn’t mean you’ll be able to dunk. Remember it’s the player not the yoyo.


#12

Well the Protostar/ Northstar are very good. My friend also has the protostar and it’s great but i want to be more unique because It feels like that everybody has a protostar/northstar ( ill probably get the northstar someday but not now). After careful consideration, i have decided that i should get a full metal yoyo and narrowed my list down to the c3yoyo di base, c3yoyo capless, and hspin icon. Can anybody tell me how they perform?


#13

Of those three the Capless is the only one I own. It is a great throw! The truth is my skills don’t even begin to put this yo-yo through it’s capable paces. And by gum rosie, it looks gorgeous just sitting on my desk…it’s so pretty.

I have heard nothing but kudos about the di base as well. I am confident you would be happy with either one of those. (Although I should be careful because you didn’t care for the Werrd HOUR, so perhaps your yo-yo palette is different than mine.)

…but I love my Capless
