No doubt, we all have reasons to identify certain yoyos that just ‘click with us’. They may not be the same reasons. Even if there were only 10 amazing good metal yoyos, we would not necessarily have identical reasons for putting them in our top 10.
Thumb grinds, finger grinds, regen strengths, sleep time, horizontal play, stability, feel on the string, flawless binds, shape and/ or feel in the hand, slick finish, ideal weight or weight distribution, and a dozen other traits that help put a yoyo on our Win list.
Obviously some of our performance conclusions about various yoyos are directly related to our Skill levels and our individual abilities to identify if a yoyo gets high marks for this or that.
For example, you may love the way a certain yoyo plays. It is your top player. But your 3 friends at yoyo club, are all advanced at Horizontal tricks and none of them like ‘your favorite yoyo’ because they agree it sucks at Horizontal. < But you don’t do Horizontal. So your review of the yoyo is based on its’ strong points for you and nothing else is important.
So, now to the Wrath. The Wrath made an Excellent first impression to me. I have thrown dozens of yoyos over the years, that did not make good first impressions, but I grew to like them over time for one reason or another. The Wrath fell into a more rare category. I really liked it when I first rolled it down the string and I still really like it. Without hesitation, I would say it is easily in the top 10 of the hundreds of yoyos I have accumulated in the past 15 years.
Most often, when I evaluate a yoyo, I don’t just look at from a ‘strengths’ view but from a ‘where does it come short’ view. < Tendency to tilt, poor at regents, kickback, deadly shape, bogs down on long combos because of poor weight distribution, etc.
All that being said leads to my question.
For the qualities I personally look for in a yoyo, the Wrath fits me like a glove. I like pretty much everything about it and just as importantly, I can’t really find anything ‘I’ don’t like about it.
Why(my actual question, finally) do you guys think the Deadly Spins Wrath just kinda went nowhere?
I’m the only one that thinks its good?
Deadly Spins didnt really promote it?
It’s not really from a major Company, so it just kinda fizzled?
It has some performance shortcomings I am just not aware of, because my skill level might not be high enough to realize them?
Deadly Spins just didnt make enough of them, so not enough in Yoers hands to generate continued interest?
Some other reasons I never thought of?
I’m just puzzled how it fell off the Radar screen, since it is such a nice playing yoyo?
Thanks for any opinions.
