So after a lot of deep thought, I have to decided to purchase a single yoyo for myself and one for my friend who’s interested in learning rather than just give myself a Genesis and the luxuries of using it all by myself. Huge sacrifice, but I’m fairly confident these three yoyos won’t let me down.
I currently own a Hitman PRO which I’ve had since early September. I had a DMII Black Spade buuuuut it managed to get lost. </3 :’(
So what I personally am looking for is stability and spin times. My Hitman PRO tends to tilt very often, especially during faster, more aggressive combos. I need something that can stay upright unless I want it to do otherwise. I’m not worried about the lack of grindability considering it doesn’t interest me too much. I am also curious about the weight differences between the Northstar and Protostar; just how large is the difference of play in terms of speed and control? As for the Dv888, I just know it has the exact same specifications as my HMP, but it’s all metal and has an H-shape, and it’s very much capable of handling several tricks.
As for my friend, all he knows is how to bind. So I can trust that he can use an unresponsive yoyo. Would you guys recommend the Northstar for its slower play so he can really work with the tricks and see what’s going on, or should I get him a Protostar so he can speed things up a bit when he feels confident?
I’m not at all asking which is better between the Northstar and Protostar, so much as I’m wondering about specific aspects of their play. And whether or not the Dv888 can do any better than the two. Because it’s tempting to buy the SPLASH verison that’s out but I’d like to save the $20 if it isn’t that major of an upgrade.
I’ll take any suggestions within this selection of three yoyos. Feel free to post opinions as well as straight up facts about them.
Thanks in advance everyone.
