I’ve played my Hitman for a good long time now. I’ve banged it on the ground so many times, the bearing seat’s cracked and it’s once smooth surface is riddled with dents (and love). We have been through sooooo much together, I can’t even begin to describe it. I don’t know if I’m ready to accept another yo-yo into my life just this yet, but lately, as I play with my now super vibe-y Hitman, my thoughts wander. I find myself wondering, “could I do better? Is she really the one?”
I think I’m ready to start looking.
Anyway, my two criteria, in order of importance are:
- An awesome looking yo-yo (this is key)
- Finish that’s good for grinding
Aside from that, I could go with anything. I’ve learned a ton of tricks, but since I’ve only been yo-yoing for a couple months, I haven’t gotten anywhere close to developing a style. I’ve only ever played with two yo-yos before (Hitman and Kickside) and they both played pretty much the same. As such, I’ve got no idea what I’m looking for in terms of size and weight. Therefor, I think the best course of action is play around a bit, and work out what my favorites are when I’m good and ready. I’d like to spend between 50 and 120 bucks. The reason I set a lower bound is because I’m tryna’ make a yo-yo investment. I want something that’s AWESOME.
EDIT: extra criterion: it should play well, too.
