My girlfriend has recently shown some interest in learning to yoyo (probably so she can spend more quality time with me since lately ive been addicted to the throw!) So anyway I have a YYF pocket change that i bought for my first yoyo and now that i have my Yuuksta i have no interest in throwing the pocket change. so my question is whether or not there is anyway to make the pocket change responsive? I know my gf needs a yoyo that will come back without binding since she has never thrown a yoyo. If there is a way to make it responsive it will make the yoyo have a specific use and then maybe it will actually get some use again.
My second question is what is a good beginner yoyo that has an adjustable string gap for under $20? the cheaper the better. I was looking at both the YYJ Journey and the duncan throw monkey. I would like something that can start responsive for her to learn basics on and then eventually be tuned to unresponsive so once she starts learning she can still use it. Plus i have quite a few friends who are interested in throwing with me sometimes and it would be nice to have a cheap yoyo that im not to protective over that can be tuned for any skill level from never thrown at all to intermediate.
