Looking for some loopers


#1

FYI I suck at 2A, these will be my first real pair I guess and I plan on getting only one pair. A second pair will probably come shortly after though :stuck_out_tongue:
I’ve narrowed it down to three choices based on what I’ve tried/heard.

  1. Raiders
    I really like the weight of Raiders, but I broke my old one cranking it. Not exactly sure what I did wrong, but it definitely feels like the nut is slipping within the plastic. I can’t screw it tighter, but I can unscrew it just fine. It’s that same thing that happened to one of my FH2’s a while back and I had to open that sucker up and super glue it. The Raider’s caps are an obstacle to that.
    These would probably be my #1 choice if I could get an answer to my problem and successfully mod them :slight_smile:

  2. Hornets
    I’ve tried these at Spinworkx. I didn’t particularly like them because they weren’t quite responsive enough for me, but I saw someone using a pair and they were great, so naturally, I wanna like them ::slight_smile:
    Oh yeah and full white Hornets would be cool :slight_smile: I’d be taking off the decals(?) anyways if I got all white.

  3. Loop 360
    Cheap, nice colors. Grooved response is interesting since I kinda liked the feel of the ol’ Sunset Trajectories. Dunno about this one but what could go wrong for $8 right?

I’d still love to use Raiders, but after the first failed mod attempt, I’m a little worried about dropping more money. It didn’t even break the yoyo really, but it’s just impossible to crank it past like 1/8 of a turn. Then I feel the nut slip and rotate that 1/6 of a turn or whatever into the next position. Anyways, that sounds more like an inconsistency issue with different Raiders because they’ve obviously been successfully modded before.


#2

Have you considered the Raider Ex? Comes w/multiple spacers for setting the gap. Eliminates the need to crank them. Feels the same as the original Raider as far as weight etc.


#3

A pair of sunsets


#4

Have you considered the loop 1080 or vortex?


#5

I have considered both and I should actually add the Loop 1080’s in because they’re two for the price of one right now. I know of the Vortex but I haven’t heard anything about them or tried them yet.
