Why?

I happen to adore my Cliff, H5xChief,
Cerberus, And I missed my old Dreadnought, and Overdrive.
Hopefully soon ill get both of those back in my hands!

And you guys?

Not “obsessed”, but every time I play the H5xChief, it’s an absolute delight. What a fun yoyo.

Dreadnaught is a very good yoyo, but the kickback was too much.

Its why we designed the Quantum at 60mm actually, its my favorite oversized without being uncomfortable. Hard to sound honest without coming off as bias though :stuck_out_tongue:

I love large yoyos. They just have a feeling to em, nothing can compare with!

I can understand that! Haha.
And I really want a quantum.
Been saving up for that, the Dread and an overdrive!

Hopefully soon haha :slight_smile:

The easiest way to see what is good with an oversized yoyo is to play with an undersized one and see the comparison.

The main concept with having a large yoyo is stability. Having so much weight further away from the axle (Oversized) vs closer to the axle (Undersized) makes the yoyo lean less during tricks (Stability!).

That is why oversized yoyos perform so well with sideways tricks, and undersized yoyos although can perform sideways stuff, is much less forgiving.

Well… I just so happen to have a dreadnoughtG for sale… ;D

But yeah… I love oversized stuff


#7

is the H3X over-sized if it is then I love that size.

Exactly that!
I love the way an Oversized yoyo, with the weight of an average yoyo, like 66g or so
they just FLY on the string. they Glide fly, float whatever.
They Just have this lovely feel.

Nope, The h3x is midsized. Very average
add 5mm to it and you have oversized :slight_smile:


#9

I don’t have an oversize then I will look into getting one to add to the collection

You defiantly should! a YYJ Cerberus. thats a cheap and AWESOME yoyo.
and it’s 59mm Oversized, and a Sweet yoyo


#11

Yeah I feel like 59-60mm is such a good size. Anything above 68 Id consider an “Oversized yoyo”

Heres a comparison with sizes!

63mm - 60mm - 56mm - 50mm


(UmeNagisa) #12

Above 68? Geez. thats a bit high eh? xD

Well in any case. My favorite Oversized would defiantly be the Cliff or the h5Chief
with the Overdrive or Clash 2012 right after!

C3 H5 will always be my go to competition yoyo. I own 3 H5’s and 3 Cerberuses so I guess you couls say I have a thing for oversized yoyos :wink:

=^-^=


#14

Well Ive always thought 56 was a normal sized yoyo.


(UmeNagisa) #15

That is! like 54-56 is normal.
In your post, you said anything about 68 is an over sized. did you mean over 58?


#16

You can’t go wrong with a Cliff. Actually my 3 most thrown throws are oversized. Classic, Surge and Cliff :slight_smile:


(UmeNagisa) #17

Heck yess!
I those those quite a bit too! :slight_smile:


#18

I love my cliff. I have pretty small hands so they fit right in the gap! If anyone has a clash for sale, pm me!


#19

I prefer full sized. But I do have some over-sized:

Cliff
Bossman
Bounty Hunter
Trap XL

I haven’t played the Trap XL yet, been too busy. I do enjoy the other three.
