Got mine yesterday and it is a nice collection!

I don’t want to spoil things too much for those who will be receiving their package in the coming days, but I have a question about the plastic yo-yo (specifics withheld to keep it a mystery :)). It does not sleep at all. Even if I drop it instead of throwing it, it bounces right back up with no tug on my part. The string seems to be very tightly held between the spacers. I am new to this style but my understanding was that this is not how it’s supposed to work.

Is this expected, is there something wrong with my hardware, or am I doing it wrong personally?

Thanks!

They’re looping yoyos. They have an adjustable response system: the tighter you screw it, the smaller the gap, and the less it sleeps. Trust me, I got a mystery box too. :wink:

(also, for curiosity’s sake, the “metal yoyo”, what color did you get? Mine was grey body with black caps)

Thanks for the reply (and also thanks to Raysion05 who sent me a PM). I imagine everyone should have received their packages by now so I’m not worried about spoilers any more…

Yeah, I know they’re looping yo-yos and that they should be responsive, but my understanding was they should be able to sleep a bit to do tricks like Around the World and these didn’t sleep at all. What I was missing was that it’s normal/expected to leave them not-fully-tightened. Would a typical thrower customize the gap width to a specific routine, or do folks pick a specific width for their personal preference and stick with it forever? Do folks write down the gap that they like to make sure they can dial it back in and keep it consistent between the two yo-yos?

Anyway, it’s fun learning a new style ;D

I got a beautiful blue color, the same as this poster from reddit: https://i.imgur.com/Lv7BzVg.jpg. I’m glad I didn’t get the your color because I got a black and grey Basecamp Navigator from box #2: https://yoyoexpert.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Ibasecamp-navigator-5.png.

They have a pretty narrow gap, maybe try a different string with them. They are definitely not designed for use with a fatter string.
