My friend needs help with picking a yoyo, but he doesn’t know what to get. He also wants to get a YYF to take advantage of the Protostar deal so I’m making this thread to help him pick a high end YYF.
His preferences are stability, long spin time to handle string hits, and a diameter of 55-58mm. He doesn’t like undersized throws or wide throws(like the Cascade’s proportions). He doesn’t grind so “glossiness” isn’t a factor. His current throw is the Avalanche(loves it) and he wants a Chief(played it before and has wanted it ever since) but he can’t afford one. I recommended the Proton and the Genesis, but he still has some doubt so I will call upon the yoyo community to aid him in his quest.
Thanks for your help! I will link this to him so he can read all of your feedback!
EDIT: Feel free to mention any other throws besides the ones I listed!
