Hey everyone, I bought this yoyo a couple of weeks ago, Haven’t seen any reviews on the usual websites that I frequent and really do feel that this model deserves one. I have thrown this yoyo and only this yoyo for the passed week to fully test what it’s capable of, I’ve tested with various strings and bearings. I understand that MYY isn’t everyone’s favorite yoyo company, a few of you probably haven’t used or seen one of their yoyo’s but this is a company that I personally think deserves more recognition. Without further a-do let’s crack on with this review.
Material: 6061 alluminium
Gap width: 4.62mm (approx)
Response: Recessed MYY Silicone Pads.
Bearing: Size C stainless steel 10-ball concave bearing.
Finish: Bead blasted colour anodised and laser engraved.
The First Throw
Before I even threw it, I was impressed, the finish on the yoyo is just spectacular I bought the blue with silver splash which was shining at me through it’s packaging, when the sun hits it in the right way the silver has small speckles in it which just look great, the string that came with the yoyo isn’t great so I threw that aside and put a normal kitty string on it. When I got to throw it, happiness ensued, no vibe, no wobble, silent as a mouse. After 20 minutes of play the bearing started to become loud, this may have just been a lubing issue as after cleaning and re-lubing it’s now on par with my OD 10 ball.
So, What’s it feel like?
After throwing it and several others I can safely say that this yoyo almost out plays most of my ‘high end’ yoyo’s and also keeps me from worrying about losing one of them whilst I’m out and about. I found that using YYSL type X strings work very well with the yoyo, Kitty normal also have a very nice feel with it. Comparing this to others that I have, I would say it feels like the love child of a code 2 and a Gnarwhal. The shape is very similar to that of the Gnarhwal and the weight and size feels alot like the code 2, there is probably a better comparison to be made, those two are ones that I own and have a lot of play time on.
How’s it play then?
It plays like any of the high end contestants. The finish on it is so smooth that during grinds you hardly even notice that it’s on your skin, Not wearing a glove I can grind it on my finger for around 7-8 seconds (longest has been 15seconds) and still get a great responsive bind (Take that with a pinch of salt, I don’t grind well). It’s great for thumb grinds aswell as it has quite an open IRG area. It plays a bit floatier that I expected but after 5 minutes it felt as fast as I usually play, It’s stable and steady even during low momentum after a grind it’s still fairly steady. I can’t state how good it is for horizontal as I haven’t given it enough of a chance or practiced it enough.
So, what’s the verdict?
At the end of the day, it’s less than $30 (I paid £20 for mine), for a yoyo that I actually prefer to use rather than any of my OD or CLYW throws it’s absolutely fantastic. Don’t let the Chinese company or low prices behind it strike fear into your heart, they did a great job on this yoyo and I would recommend to anyone to pick up one if you get the chance.
Thank you for reading this review, Hope you have found it informative, as this is my first review of a yoyo feel free to provide feedback or criticize me.
