I love hearing about all the great new throws and sharing the excitement of someone getting a new yoyo but what do you play, on a regular basis, that’s not mentioned by others and is no longer or never was that hyped?
I’ll share a bit of the yoyos I play that fall into this category:
Luchador: This thing looks and is mean. I’ve cut my hands with it a few times lol but for some reason I still find myself drawn to it.
Josey Ann: This is one large diameter yo that even I would say “floats,” and I really dislike that term when describing a yoyo, but it does, it does “float.” The finish is just amazing to look at and it grinds so so well.
I have several old wooden hummingbirds that I throw regularly. Just an awesome feeling yoyo that I connect with for some reason.
DMI: The whine of that silly hybrid response can drown out so much! I know, I know, but it sure does make one appreciate the evolution of responses.
Difeo Crossbones, Wide load, and Juggernaut: All dif-ferent, all dif! Just really enjoy them.
Eric Wolfe: Tulip wood yoyo with a bearing, beautiful, vibes a bit but makes me smile every time.
Pyro: Yeah I throw the old “coke can” for a bit every week. When I saw LinksLegionaire’s bst thread, with two beauties in it, I was floored. Nobody even commented! Big yo, small diameter axle, and so smooth. One of the first amazing anno jobs for it’s time as well.
I have others that I play regularly as well but I’ll save those for another time. (I don’t want to bore ya)
So…what do you find to be golden yet not the flavor of the month?
Don’t be shy, nothing wrong with throwing something different than everyone else. Share!
