looking for good plastic


#1

i’m a fairly skilled player, i’m just looking for something that i can use outside that i won’t be afraid to damage

now, I like something light or heavy but not in between (64 grams feels like a soft marshmellow to me). full size preferably, something in the 62g or 67g range and somewhere between 53-55ish milimeters and nothing under 40mm in width
category. i’m a fan of YYJ’s but only their plastic cause some of them are mostly metal so what would be a good fit for me?


#2

Get the YYJ Kickside. It will make you happy. What you just said screams “I want a Kickside.” It is a little fat and over wieght but still fast on a throw and it does’nt matter that much if you drop it or ding it. It’s like cream cheese; very rich and smooth.


#3

what is your price range?


#4

Northstar is really nice. It is heavy, stable, and plays really well


#5

protostar is good if you can get used to the shape. I think it’s in your weight range, but don’t be fooled, it feels very floaty on the string.


#6

I second the Protostar. But I have to say, though that it’s light, it doesn’t play that fast in sidestyle.


#7

duncan freebird- 80$ but its a good throw. made our of delrin
northstar is a good choice (i recommend over the protostar)
pgm might be good cause it has hubstacks and your name is hubstacker haha
counterattack is like a pgm but without hubstacks

my yyj dark magic 2 has taking a huge beating. ive smashed it into everything and it has dings all over it. but it still spins! however its part metal


#8

Same, I prefer the northstar over the protostar. They play very differently for yoyos that share ths exact same shape


#9

If you want something cheap, get a Yoyojam Lyn Fury or a Yoyofactory Die-Nasty. but if you have a little extra cash go for the northstar by yoyofactory.


#10

If you like playing fast and light yoyo buy protostar, if you want something heavy buy the northstar


#11

Its like he said. I’ve had the kickside, and its been good to me. I’ve hit the ground with it maybe 10-20, hit myself maybe 5 times. No ding no scratches. ;D


#12

If your budget is pretty up there, you may want to look at the crucials and 3yo3
For something cheaper, look into the “stars”


#13

I look @ the stars every night and never see any yoyo’s? ;D

Ok, now back to the topic at hand…I would say FHZ/FH2, Kickside, or Glow Nasty. They all can take a beating and still play smooth.


#14

Really? cuz last night I looked up and saaw Orion playing with the Northstar 8)


#15

badpunftw!


#16

the only kinds of puns i know!


#17

I think you should get the plastic from Shen Zhou it is 42mm wide, 56mm diameter, 5mm gap, and 64 grams.


#18

hey all, right now, i’m thinking about buying a pair of northstars for 3a, or 5a or 1a, i’ve tried the kickside and it doesn’t realy suit me well, i had to add some weight rings for it, cause it seemed to light, and the gap is piuny. i had to make some special string just to play it, and i cuts into my hand. so my choices now are either a phenomizm(which i think is overpriced but hey, i’m open to suggestions) or a northstar, and price doesn’t matter with me[over plastics i mean]

p.s. when i say i want a plastic, i’m talking nothing over $69 I consider delrin yoyos equal to metals because they are machined and cost just like a yoyo made from aluminum even though delrin is self lubricating, i wouldn’t treat it like a regular plastic


#19

Darn, if you are open to metal, I would choose the Yuuksta over Phenomizm. But Phenomizm is great too, despite the fact that you might hate the shape.
