I saw a lot of reviews on here for really, really expensive yoys on the upper end, and I wanted to do a review to show off some yoyos on the cheaper side to some of those high end ones. I don’t think just because you spend a 100 dollars on a yoyo, it means you have some special advantage now. There are plenty of really good yoyos out there that wont make you live off ramen soup for the next week.
First one up: N9 floater.
Now I’m sure a lot of you on here are die hard yoyo expert fans. As I am. my first yoyo off here was the dark magic 2, then the 888 (look at me, with an 888 preaching against high cost yoyos. Hypocrite right?) then shutter, token, and supernova. I’ve had other yoyos on this site (Fast 201 was my first, and another dark magic 2) but I just didn’t PURCHASE them off this store. But there is another site out there that is REALLY good at selling random stuff. Amazon.
I found the floater on amazon just messing around one day and I ordered it, just gambling on maybe it wasn’t that bad. And darn. I love this thing. My first issue with it at first is that it was impossiable to un screw. After a few hours of play, that got fixed. With some lube, the bearing and the z stacks quiet (the z stacks not by much) and it. Was. Awesome. There wasn’t a trick I couldn’t do with it. Skin the gerbil, black hops, and whut, most of the slack tricks, it was awesome.
If I had a choice, I would much rather have the floater than the 888. Yeah, the 888 is ****** and it was worth the money spent on it. I got really good with the 888 as it was my leap up from dark magic 2.
The floater is 14 or so dollars. And you will not be disappointed as it out preforms most, if not all my yoyos. That in itself should make you go out and buy it.
Next one up is magic yoyo n12.
Again, this yoyo was kick ***. It was a little more expensive then it’s brother the n9, but only by double at 28 or so dollars, with shipping. I was so pleased with this yoyo, because it arrived along with the shutter. If I had to be completely honest, as if my life depended on it, between the shutter and n12, the shutter beat it. But not by a lot. The only problem I had with it was the fact skin the gerbil, my go to trick, was almost a little too much for it. Almost. The grinds on both (the n12 and shutter) Were awesome, the gaps, awesome. The paint job, super awesome. I love them both equally. Was I mad that the shutter was almost 40 dollars more than the n12? Not really.
Like I said, the shutter does have some key differences in the way it feels in play, looks and throws. So all in all, if your looking at a shutter quality yoyo but looking to spend a lot less, the n12 is for you. (Also, n12 has a shark on it, and that’s pretty awesome)
Next one is the Magic yoyo T8:
Now unlike the other two in this post, this yoyo I hated. It gap was small, it said unresponsive, but it wasn’t. I mean, it barley was but my fast 201 is less responsive than it. The reason I put it up here was the fact it is nice to play with and do some quick double or nothing, or just something to mess around with if your in a place where you can dent your yoyo or hit things. I mean, it was 8 dollars. That’s not too bad.
Well that’s all I have for this one! I hope you all liked and appreciated this post, if you have any questions, message me. Peace out!
