Horizon and shutter or protostar and northstar


#1

I’m leaning towards the protostar and northstar; can they keep up with these newer designs? Although I may not be the best at it, I like to experiment with horizontal play. Can the plastics that I’ve selected handle horizontal as well as the metals?


#2

I feel the shutter alone is better than most yo-yos under $100. I’d say the shutter plays better than both the north star and protostar. If i was you I’d just get the shutter.

Why not one of each so you have both plastic and metal


#4

Yyr diffusion

Lol

If you were just looking and platics, then yes, the diffusion would probably be a better voice than both the superstar and North Star.

But since we have 2 other great yoyos, I don’t think suggeting the diffusion would be very relevant.

Again, all preferences. The shutter was my first metal, and competition yoyo. I loved it ever since the order throw and it will remain as one of my everyday throws.
But the horizon , I haven’t played. It looks sick for horizontal and finger spins, but I kinda hate oversized yoyos(except the Equilateral) and is pretty heavy.

So really it’s all preference. To answer your questions about the playability o the plastics compared to the metals, its mostly skill of your horizontal, but it will definitely be easier on a horizon/shutter, IMO.

With the horizon now being out of stock, how is the czm8 for horizontal and finger spins?


#7

It would be pretty good, but if you are gonna choose another yoyo, i would HIGHLY
reccomend the PulseFire, signature throw of Tyler Hsieh(aznyuan)
Plays Fast, Stable, Light, and can finger spin really well


#8

Where would one fine a PulseFire?

Maybe you should get a shutter and a protostar.

Ill send you the link for it via message, as im nto sure if im allowed to directly put the link in the forums.

IMO, i would say you should rather get a Diffusion(v.2).
About same cost, but the diffusion probably outplay the protostar in every way
