Looking to buy a real Yo Yo... Opinions?


#1

I’m looking for a yo yo under 30 bucks since I’m just a beginner. I want a yo yo that will help me learn intermediate to more advanced crazy string tricks. This is a yo yo I want to get good with string tricks on, but at the same time I want the option of that responsiveness to practice some looping tricks since I love to loop and it’s pretty much all I’ve got to practice because I have cheap yo yos that pretty much are only good for coming back at you and not for crazy sleeps. I feel like the Velocity could be the yo yo I can really learn things on. Anybody else have any better options before I spring for it?

what’s your budget? if you have a little more money you could get a DM, but i’m assuming your budget’s around $20, so a lyn fury or a one would be excellent.


#3

I recommend the yyf ONE or the yyj lyn fury. I think you should get a seperate yoyo for looping, though.


#4

agreed.serious 1a yoyo’s will not work for looping.try some unleashed’s or loop 900s for looping.


#5

the lyn fury will take you from rock the baby to winning the world yoyo contest…

… and it’s only 14 dollars.


#6

the ONE its awesome it plays AMAZING and its only 10$


#7

You can also get good deals on the B/S/T on this site.


#8

if you want a cheap looper look into the shinwoo loop or bumble bee. Ive heard good things about them


#9

go to the b/s/t on here, people sell some throws for great prices. got a $70 lunatic for $35, and an 888 for $36.
Or if you want to buy new, go for either a lyn fury, or a yyf One.
personally I’d go with the lyn fury. Someone who’s name I’m blanking on right now won worlds with a lyn fury.


#10

dude why are you talking about the 888 stuff


#11

Can you give a reason why can’t he?


#12

Alright, so I’m convinced that I should get a loop 900, but still on the fence about a Lyn Fury or a One. I like the way Lyn looks, but also appreciate that the One comes with interchangeable bearings/instructional video… Any votes and reasoning for one or the other?


#13

the one is kind of a begginer–>advanced “all-in-one(no pun intended)-kit” and the lyn fury is pretty much the same thing, but without all those things in the box.you couldn’t go wrong either way


#14

I was just saying how they have some great deals on the b/s/t forum.

Good choice for looping. got a pair of loops, and they’re amazing. :slight_smile:
And personally I’d go for a lyn fury over a one. It’s responsive when you want it to be. and when you get better and move up to unresponsive play, a simple mod (all it requires is a sharp knife) makes it completely unresponsive.
plus I think it feels better in the hand than a one.


#15

The Loop 900 is very expensive. The Unleashed plays same if not better than the Loop 900; I suggest Unleashed.


#16

I have the Loop 900 and it,s a great looper! Just tried the Unleashed and it was just as good.

For 1A, the Fury’s great. Out of the box it’s beginner friendly. With a few tweaks (I siliconed mine and added weight rings), it’s advanced player friendly. I got mine for $13, probably the best $13 spent, along with my FH2010s.
