lowest quality for price vs highest quality for price.


What do yoyo’s do you guys think fits in each?

Like for me- Highest price for lowest quality IMO would be the AG2 or 888x.

Lowest price for highest quality would be like Capless, or Protostar.

Highest Price for Lowest Quality- YYF Avant Garde 2.

Lowest Price for Highest Quality- YYF , RecRev TA-1


Low price - High quality: Protostar/Northstar
High price - Low quality: A pair of Yomega Raider ['cause of all the modding and hitting on other things. ] Not saying it’s crap, but just saying it breaks pretty easy.


high-price to low performance: i wouldnt know acually.

low price to high performance: protostar


High price, low performance - Anti-Yo Bapezilla 2
Low price, high performance - Classic



I don’t think that’s a fair assessment of the product. The accepted way to mod a raider is what breaks them. You’re right on the edge when you get to the cranking phase of the mod. A stock raider holds up very well.

For me the lowest price/highest quality is the YYJ journey. Good quality throw at a very good price. One of my all time favorites.


I ultimately agree on both. The Bape.2 didn’t do it for me. More of a luxury throw than performer, if that makes sense.



For highest quality for price I would say Di Base it could literally be twice the price!


Horrible misuse of the word ‘quality’

This whole thread is poisoned by it.

Lowest quality for the price? Wow, what a question.

I wouldn’t say exactly “lowest quality” for the price. For me, in my opinion, I feel the YYF Skyline plays more like it should be priced around $80. I didn’t really care for this yoyo too much but it did play pretty good. I jut felt the price didn’t match the performance for me in my opinion.

Highest quality for the price? Also loaded, but at least it’s not negative. I take this one you want an answer of “lowest price for highest quality”. Magic T5? YYJ Classic? If we’re willing to look up the line QUITE a bit, I’d like to say the YYF Equilateral. I’m not trying to undo any damage I may have caused. Seriously. This yoyo really clicked with me immediately. For the price, I feel it plays MUCH in a much higher price bracket. Of course, we’re talking about a $110 yoyo, so you expect it to be really good. This really surprised me in some ways. First, I am a big fan of the Mickey-signature yoyos, so I figured this would be a good, safe bet. What I received was much better than I was expecting. Good job on this one, now make a LOT more!!!

Others would be the DiBase, Freq. Wave, and yes, the Classic and Magic YoYo T5.


Lowest Quality for price: Definitely an Anti-Yo, probably YWET or Vis/BP2, but I really don’t hold it against them. I think Anti-Yo’s mission includes taking a yoyo and making it interesting in some other way, and at that, they often succeed. There’s something about their products that still feel “worth it” even if I don’t think they’re the best players

Highest quality, lowest price-…Probably the Whip. I think it’s great fun, and actually pretty capable. Plus, the Ann Connolly version includes a Center Trac and the whole yoyo sells for less than the Center Trac alone. So, they’re paying you a dollar to own a pretty good plastic. Can’t beat that.


I personally believe that the Eternal Throw “Victory” is a Fantastic YoYo !!
For $90.00 you have a super stable throw with side effects and a great looking ano job as well.
I’m a bit cynical about sub $100.00 YoYo’s, but I had to speak up about the Victory.

I’m not comfortable bagging on a YoYo being a high price, low quality.
I’ll leave that for others to decide…

Wait, are we talking about quality or value?
