LF OD recommendations

Hello there yo-yo enthusiasts,

I’m thinking of purchasing one of the following OD models : Panorama / Diorama / Parlay / Format C.

Which one of these beasts would you advise me to buy and why?

Get any of them. Parlay is pretty good but get what ever you can get your hands on.


Parlays are about to drop and the other 3 are quite easy to find second hand… only issue is that I can only afford to buy one haha.

Never played a format C. Sorry.
I see very little difference between the pano and Dio…i swaped out SE so often that the weight diff between then is meaningless. I like the Dio a bit more because it’s AL7 … or is that the Pano… i don’t recommend both especially if your on a budget.

PARLAY is way more my style then the pano/Dio. Can’t say enough about the parlay.

In the end look at the shape you want to play the most.


I agree with the others. Get whichever shape appeals to you most. Format:C is going to be more light and sporty feeling, Pano/Dio is slimmer and high-walled so will take some finesse to really enjoy, and Parlay will be sort of a middle ground like a higher performing organic compared to the Panorama.

Personally, I’d get a Parlay but I already have a Panorama (which I love) and I’m not really interested in the Format:C.


Honestly, I said get a pano or dio. The parlays that dropped last week sold out in literal seconds. This drop won’t be different. I say go for a pano or dio. Both are stock several different places brand new. You’ll be fine with either one, though they are slimmer, they’re not harder to play with. At least I don’t think so. I say they’re funner to play with if anything.


Parlay 100%, then panorama, then diorama, then format:c 2


You were right the first time. The Diorama is AL7 (7075).


I don’t have a OD that I don’t like. Current favorites are still the Top Deck and recently picked up a Sugar Glider and I like it a lot. Slightly undersized and just enough width. MCMO is also really good. Of all of those the Sugar Glider is in stock now.
