Grind Machine or Protostar?


which one is better?




which one would you get?




If you like to grind or are interested in hubstack play, the Grind Machine is the only option. The protostar is a heavier throw that can’t grind at all. Aside from this, both are very capable string trick performers.


Both are good, it’s mainly preference. My preference is the Protostar because I like the shape and the catch zone works for me about as well as any yoyo I have. I’m still a sloppy player so the gap on the Protostar is a plus for me as well.


Protostar, unless you really, really, really need hubstacks for some reason.


I have both. The PGM was bought to have a hubstack example, and for that, it serves it’s purpose quite well. But, it’s also a decent player.

Given a choice between the Protostar and the PGM, I’d take the Protostar. For me it’s a better fit.

No regrets about having both.




everyone says that but you cant find them anywhere except MAYBE the bst


Go for the protostar! There’s a reason behind its hype.
