This post is mainly directed at yoyofactoryben, but a little debate about the matter won’t do harm.
So I was looking at all the YoYoFactory metals in production. And what I see is the Frantic, Hectic, Dv888 and 888 which are all small yoyos. And then I see the G5, DNA and SuperStar which are all big yoyos. So Now I am hoping for a medium-sized YoYofactory metal, even better, a fundaMETAL. I think it would be great to have a reasonable price yoyo hitting that 53-54 mm mark.
It might be a lot to request here, but I would really like to see a medium-sized yoyo with original design combined with YoYoFactory’s precise machining and a reasonable price-tag. You have the 50mm yoyos out there and you have the 55+ mm yoyos out there. So why hesitate on a 53 mm yoyo?
You know, now that I think of it, there are not a whole lot of 52-54mm Diameter yo-yos out there.
Off the top of my head,
RecRev Bad Rep
I don’t think YYF makes one in this size. In the back of my head, I want to say that they do but I can’t remember 100%. Anyone remember what the specs on the Grind Mutant 2 were? I seem to remember then being slightly shorter than the g5. I am probably way off though
I was kinda hoping for something new. And just like dryoyo said, there are not too many mediums out there (You can add Bully and CUT to the list). And seeing how people LOVE the 5-star and Cream, I don’t see how putting a yoyo in this size on the market can be risky. If made well (YoYoFactory will probably make it well IF they even make it) people might just jump it.
Addment: The Grind Mutant 2 is really hard to get your hands on though. Only 15 out there.
I don’t want to say that YYF has bad customer service, but they are not the only one with good customer service. If you’ve taken a look at the ano defect P2s that went for 75 at the One Drop store, you will see that the only defect is a tiny circular spot in the IRG. My first M1 had this defect, and somehow, I managed to end up with two M1s.
But yeah, YoYoFactory customer service is said to be top class (never been in contact with them)
And Ben is open to suggestions from the community. He is frequently posting in his own thread at YYN where people are coming with suggestions all the time. And he has been cooperative on several of the ideas in that particular thread.
Addment: He did turn down stuff like dice stacks and white anodizing (Dice stacks don’t give any profit and white ano=super-expensive yoyo.
I am liking Medium sized and larger yos now, why I love Black Knight (Wat oversized and heavy) and Cream.
When my PGM broke I contacted YoYoGuy, and I must say it wasn’t the best service. We called them and no reply for 2 days. We had to send it in which took 4 days, it took them about two weeks to look at it and then just sent it back and said “Ok, It’s broken!” in which we called (No answer) and asked for a refund. Took a day or so for them to get back to us. I know they are very busy but…
