[s]Hey guys, first of all I’d like to apologize for my English. It’s not my native language so please don’t go hard on me
First I’ll give some background, just skip this part if you don’t feel like reading it: I’ve been yoyoing for around 2-3 months. I used to love yoyos back when I was a kid and the last yoyo I had was a Fast 201. I just found it some months ago and decided to go ahead and try getting into yoyoing again. I bought myself an Adegle PSG because it was fairly cheap and it seemed like a good choice due to how hard to break it was… Three months later I feel comfortable with a yoyo again and I can do pretty much any basic unresponsive trick and I feel like getting myself a somewhat delayed Christmas present.
So I’ve been looking up a ton of information about different yoyos and all that stuff and, apparently, the YYF Protostar is a really good choice because it’s almost as good as a metal yoyo(which I’ve never used) but still keeps the upsides of a plastic one.
But for pretty much the same price I could also get a Dv888, which looks like a better investment in the long run. But I am scared of messing up while learning my tricks and breaking it. Because all I’ve heard is bad about metal yoyos is that they break way more easily than plastic ones. I don’t go around throwing my yoyo into walls but I’ve had it hit the floor or whatever in these 3 months. Is it a good idea getting a metal yoyo, then?
And a last question: I haven’t tried doing any fancy maintenance or modding or whatever to my yoyo. I’ve heard I should lube the bearing and change the pads and… other stuff… So… Am I supposed to start doing that with my new yoyo in case I get one?
Thanks for the help in advance And sorry for the wall of text.[/s]
So I’m done with choosing the yoyo. I got myself a Dv888. The only problem I currently have is that it seems to be incredibly responsive while trying any slack tricks… I am not sure whether it’s related to the bearing or the pads but my hand hurts now
