My personal pick is the a-rt Garrett
I’ve only tried 4 throws that were released this year:
Gway Saboteur and Daredevil
Out of those four…I don’t know if I’d be able to pick one.They’re all really nice in their own way.
Panorama for me, hands down. With the FH1- AL SB, FH1-AL in a solid second. And the End II Prelude as one of my most exciting yoyos.
These 3-4 yoyos were pretty much all I used last year.
Gravity and 44Mod(not sure if this was a 2021 release?) were the most innovative to me.
Valhalla was my first G2. I really didn’t expect it to live up to the hype, but it did. Excellent yoyo.
Loving the Aitch and RBC. Haven’t tried everything though, impossible to say
Honestly have been throwing the tiramisu (1 or 2) and panorama for most in 2021, so probably those two.
I have to put my vote in for the Panorama as well. I got several special yo-yos this year, but the pano just really strikes me as something special. I can’t even define why, but it feels great to throw.
I actually worry about this a lot. The bar is so high going in for someone’s first G2, I feel like it’s almost impossible to beat that expectation for them
Yeah that is completely fair. I have no idea how you would mitigate that. I’m satisfied, at least, and I’m a G2 fan now.
G2 Mongoose… yoyo is SLEPT on… is the proto version the final version or will there be changes @G2_Jake
There was changes. Hard to be slept on when the production model hasn’t dropped lol. Looks like feb release though
RBC. I can’t put it down.
Not much talk of it on Facebook compared to other recent models… def feel it will continue to go under the radar… interested to see what you changed
I got my first G2 this year and while I didnt love the throw, the experience of getting my first G2 lived up to the hype and then some.
The finish of the anodizing, the quality of the engraved artwork, the absolutely impeccable smoothness of the yoyo, even the small details in the packaging and artwork all amounts to an experience that is more than deserving of the hype.
Yeah. Since the production version hasn’t been released. I think once get released it’s gonna get the love it deserves.
Are you thinking early or late February for this?
With the year wrapped up, and only picking one, it’s gotta be the mod44. Personal favorite, nah, but my vote for the best? Absolutely. It’s still getting even better into 2022 with the Freehand cap rims that @wayne927 designed, and other people like @TheThrowingGnome continuing to tinker with it. Seems like this yoyo is going to be exciting and fresh for as long as people with some CAD skills or any other crafty people continue to mess with it.
