As I said in my “introduce yourself” post, I never imagined the yoyo world could be so big and man! what a lot of yoyo models
I now know I can’t just get to an online store and pick any yoyo that “looks pretty”
Of course appereance is something to have into account hehe but TBH all the yoyos I’ve seen look pretty (in the worst case) and amazing (in the best case).
The thing is, I know I can’t ask for a yoyo out of the blue. It’s like going to the doctor and say “Doctor, I’m sick so give me medication!” How if he didn’t even told him the symptoms or what he does or where he has been… or for that matter what’s his sickness.
So, taking that approach I’ll write my profile:
I haven’t had a yoyo in all my life… at least none that I can remember. Prolly I had a couple of really cheap yoyos in my youth but nothing worth mentioning (made in china generic 0.5$ yoyo at best)
I want to take it seriously… not to the competition level but I want to have a yoyo with wich I can perform a wide range of tricks, mostly beginner-intermediate tricks (for now hehe)
I know nothing about yoyo mod and I don’t want to get a yoyo that you have to mod right out of the box (not yet at least)
I am thinking a metal yoyo is best for me 'cause being the n00b I am, there is a high chance I’ll hit the floor/walls/bed/car/spaceship/people/dog/parrot/sister/anyting_else
I live outside the US and you can’t find quality yoyos here, hence I have to buy one online and well gettin it to my country is going to cost some money so my budget can’t go beyond the 30$ (I might push it to 45$ but I would need a good reason to do it)
I want a trusty beginner-intermediate metal yoyo ;D with long sleep time and a insurance in case I hit someone in the head (that someone could be me).
