Now that they’re starting to arrive i figured I’d post a thread to gather everyone’s thoughts.
If you owned a Walker how does it compare?
If you were skeptical of the hype, what are your thoughts after playing it?
If you weren’t skeptical of the hype, is it everything you were expecting?
I’ll do a more in depth review after I’ve had it for a bit, but I fall into the camp of those who were skeptical. I was unsure how well an older design would hold up.
Initially the first few throws I was unsure, as all the hype made me expect some incredible revelation if this was indeed the best yo-yo of all time. That’s not realistic though and once I started evaluating it like any other yo-yo I’m starting to see why people praise it so much.
I’m not sure completely where I stand yet, but it’s without a doubt a great yo-yo. Light and mobile while still having a presence on the string, this thing handles direction change with ease and makes even my zippier yo-yos feel slightly sluggish in comparison.
As I throw it more I’ll let you all know where i stand on the “best yo-yo ever” claim, still too early for me to chime in on that, I’m still in the money moon phase.
