Ah, plastics. I mean, metals are fantastic, but we should all have a few plastic yoyos in our collections. It comes down to what you want to spend and what features you want. Really, maxing out is the Protostar and Northstar, which at $35 each, in my opinion, it doesn’t get much better than that. Those are amazing players. YYF has a lot in that area, which includes those models, as well a the PGM, DieNasty, Starbrite, Whip and ONE to name but a few. YYJ has a lot of amazing stuff in there too, which includes the but is not limited to the Chaser, Legacy II, Kickside, Speed Maker, Lyn Fury, Pinnacle(if you want a 5A set) and more. The Adegle PSG and Asteroid are good solid players at $16 each and are must-haves in my opinion. Of course, Duncan and Yomega have offerings too, so don’t ignore them. FH2’'s, Freakhands(scary cap FH2’s) and FHZs give you 5A and 1A play in one package. The ProZ is way fun and adaptable, going from string trick to modified with a simple modification that can be undone and redone with the included parts. I think the Yomega Ooch might be one of the few to consider regarding plastics if you want to go with string trick throws from that brand.
It comes down to what you want to spend. There’s a lot of really decent plastics out there.
