Hi, I’m sitting here with 2 throws in the shopping cart (Orca & Nightmare) and know I will get in trouble with my better half if I buy both. I can’t decide. im leaning towards the CLYW because I only have one, and it’s the plastic Big Dipper. And I have many YYF throws, which I love dearly.
If you have yet to try a bi-metal yoyo, I’m sure you’ll love the Nightmare.
The Orca is heavy, smooth, and very stable. It is also made in Canada. The Orcas in the new color ways also comes with concave bearings (licensed from Dif-E-Yo).
Both are great choices. I was in your position awhile ago, I had too many YYF and wanted to try other brands out. So I decided to get the Big Dipper and fell in love with it. Since then, I’ve bought more CLYW throws and I can tell you that each are very unique and special in their own ways. I love all of my CLYW, a great brand that makes high quality return tops that plays super well.
You could always get the Orca now, and save up for a Blizzard or Igloo
They’re both great throws. You can’t go wrong whichever you choose. I myself would go for an Orca, because I like the wider snowpad response a lot better than the thin sticker response of the nightmare, and also Clyw’s tend to have a better resale value than yyfs (in general)
