so, not many have talked about the cascade. It is smaller, but also very wide. it is not as long spinning as your code 2, but just as stable and much smoother and more grind friendly. I must say that I am a little biased, cause i love onedrop and side effects. I have all three of the yoyos in question, so I guess i should address all of them.
I have already talked about the cascade, so…
Addiction: fast and smooth in my opinion, not super fast, but fast. classic, easy to recognize shape. It can matador and grind very well. It can also take a serious beating. It is an all around good, solid yoyo, and one that i often grab when i can’t decide what i want to take. I got mine for $40 from a friend.
Chief: Pretty much the super hyped up monster. The hype is almost as big as the performance, and trust me, the performance is top notch. Stable, long spinning, smooth. A floaty enough for hops (it is amazing for this) and whips, fast enough for tech tricks. It handles everything from hops to horizontals. It is sort of big, so if you don’t like that, I guess you should consider something else. This can really grind well.
oh whatever, Guess i’ll talk about the cascade, too!
Cascade: SMOOTH. Probably the smoothest yoyo in both feel and grinds ever. on an even mediocre throw, it is just dead on the string. One of my favorite throws. The weight is more central, and so the spin feels a little less strong than the other 2 in my opinion. It still spins more than long enough for any combo or trick that i know.
I would sa that you should choose between the chief and the cascade.
