New yyj Surge


(DarkPirate) #1

I just got my new Surge in the mail this afternoon. So far it seems like a pretty fun throw. Anyone else get one today?


#2

Yes. I agree, it’s a really good plastic. More kudos for YYJ for this model!

I’ve got one coming today, but we don’t get the mail until late afternoon.


#4

I got one in the mail yestarday and its AMAZING. I’m debating on wether to sell a metal to get 2 more…,

I like mine too, but I don’t think it plays a well as my metal yoyo’s. It doesn’t seem to take as much string in the gap and it feels a bit more responsive then I was hoping, however it might just need some break in time or maybe some thin lube on the bearing.


#6

If you think it’s already too responsive, thin lube is going to make it more responsive.


#7

I’m still waiting for mine… :cry:


#8

Mines in the post office just waiting to be delivered straight to my door


(DarkPirate) #9

Of course, but if I clean the bearing first and then use thin lube it should get better.


#10

I’m using thick Metz on it the thickest of all strings and I can still get like 3 layers of string. Try shims if the gap is to small for you.


(DarkPirate) #11

well it seems like it just needed some break in time. Its working just fine now.


(R.C. Sproul) #12

It’s a pretty good player. It makes my SR-71 look like a mistake.


#13

Dang, mine hasn’t come yet.


#14

Just got mine with a yo-life t-shirt. It plays AMAZING, it plays best with a trifecta though. Tight binds, and a more comfortableshape than the classic.


#15

I wanted to get a Surge, until I saw that it weighed 70 grams, so I got a Classic instead. I’m only 23, but for some reason most yoyos over 68 grams make my wrist snap when I throw them, and after about 20-30 throws with my wrist snapping I have to completely quit throwing for a couple of days due to the pain. The only exception has been with YYR’s DreadnoughtG. It’s weighs 79 grams, but for some reason didn’t cause my wrist to snap.


#16

Latnay, that sounds more like a technique problem with your throw. Do you get the same problem throwing straight down in front of you? If not, you may be doing something wrong on your break aways. A difference of a few grams shouldn’t have such a drastic result.


#17

On a side note, did you guys buy a shirt along with your Surge? And what color Surge did you guys get?

I got a red/white Surge with a Slacker t-shirt.


#18

I got the same color yoyo, but no shirt.


(DarkPirate) #19

Slacker T for me too, and Blue and Green for the yoyo


#20

I’m a little skeptical about the gap width. 3.55mm? Hmmm…
