Mini yo-yo - Help me choose

Got rid of my zipppfly and now it’s left a big void in my yo-yo life. I need a new mini, not because they play great but because they it the pocket better than a full size and I like to keep a yo on me at all times because I have this crazy notion that I’m going to stop a robbery or abduction with a forward pass to the face one day.
I need help picking a new mini. I’m feeling the Loonie. The executive has gotten some good praise, and the 66% stuff looks interesting (Edge beyond especially)
Can I get some input to help me decide. Even if you don’t own I’d like to hear what you think on any mini’s out there. Thanks in advance.

I am not sure how good b grades are for Popstar but I love mine.

I like my popstar too…but if I ever decide to pick a nice mini up…think it’s going to be an executive. I like how it’s not insanely tiny like the loonie/fly/flea…plus it came in green! lol

–edit–
Just looked the zzzip-fly up on google. I guess it’s not as tiny as I thought!

Only 10 wing wangs for a popstar B. 80 for the executive. I’d spend that much but I need to be convinced.

How small do you want to go?

The Deep State fits really nicely in the pocket, because it’s slim. It’s best responsive though.

The Loonie is a good bit smaller than the Zipfly. I played one at a yoyo meetup, and I was really impressed with it! It was the previous version.

The Popstar is fun, and cheap. Fingerspins are a blast on it!

Input for the Loonie, plays wells. It’s wide for its diameter so holding it for a comfortable throw took me a few tosses to get right. Honestly getting a holder to carry a full size yoyo on your belt loop is the route I go. Why sacrifice play ability. The only thing the mini yoyos are fun for is doing tricks on the toilet.

Someone gave me this and I don’t even know who makes it, but it’s pretty cool.

Anyone happen to know?

Monistat 2 is the best performance wise if you can find one:)

I like my genxs and my dingo is the bees knees if you can find one. Really kicking myself over selling my Hashtag as well.

Secretly crying that 50mm yoyos are considered mini to people now.

No 66% owners out there? Or are they not that good. They look dope. I like the novelty of a super tiny throw but also just something completely different sometimes is refreshing. My current everyday carry is a Lyn Fury. I love the shape, hate the o-ring response feel. Would like to go smaller than Lyn.

Good feedback so far really appreciated

That Old School Throws Medalion looks awesome but I intend to make this my everyday carry so I do t want to invest that much on something I may lose or that will be getting scratched up in my pocket.

Depending on your budget the 66% edge beyond can really pull it off. I mean, have you seen Evan push it to its limits? Its insane!

I have an idea. You send ME a 66% Edge Beyond. That way, I will be an owner of it. Then I can tell you that it can perform the rudimentary tricks that I can also perform, thereby allowing you to purchase it based on a recommendation from an owner. Win/win/win.
