Medium skilled player yoyo


#1

Hi,
I am looking for a yoyo that is good for medium skilled player but will last to the pro level. I have a budget of 30$.
Does anybody have recommendation?

Thanks

Alpha crash(19.99$), magic n12(depends on site but lowest is 16.00$), yyj classic(10$ without upgrades and atleast 20$ with bearing and response), yyf proto or North Star(30$).

Thank you very much!

^ Absolutely said it all. Just wanted to add that the “Northstar” is now called the “Shaqlerstar”. :slight_smile:

The Yoyojam Surge is excellent, and only $16.

Depends… Does medium skilled mean you can bind yet? If so, a protostar is excellent but its $35, great choice if you can go a bit above your budget. If not, an alpha crash is a good choice for $20. If you want a metal, get a magic yoyo. If you can’t bind yet, you should get a Legacy II, $24, it comes with a slim bearing for responsive play and a speed bearing for unresponsive play when you’re ready.

fixed


#8

It looks exactly the same as my original ???

edit: OHHH, wait i got it, my bad :smiley:


#9

Look at the yoyojam trigger $27 plays with the best of my throws


#10

What did he fix??? I read it like 3 times…


#11

Originally i put “it comes with a slim bearing for unresponsive play and a speed bearing for unresponsive play when you’re ready” :smiley: but i changed it haha


#12

Does the Shaqlerstar is a responsive yoyo? And if yes can we change the bearing to turn it unresponsive?


#13

it is just unresponsive just like the trigger is just as good if not a little better but it all depends on preference the trigger play on the floaty side compared to the shaqlerstar but it still has great spin times.


#14

Does the surge is a responsive yoyo? Because I looked on YouTube, yoyo expert blog page and other things like that and I didn’t find the answer on my own, if no does all the ball bearing yoyos are unresponsive?
Sorry to bother you guys with all those small questions.


#15

Not all ball bearing yoyo are unresponsive (though most of the are). Yoyojam uses narrow bearings in some of its lower-end models. It’s just a slim bearing which makes the yoyo responsive.

For the bearing width, look for 0.250". That’s the unresponsive size. 0.125" is responsive.


#16

Speed bearings are unresponsive :stuck_out_tongue: a responsive yyj bearing is called a slim bearing haha
