I have T5 and N9. Both are grrrrreat. I highly recommend the T5!
If you’re debating between the T5 and the N12… I would try out the N12. I do not own it, but I will soon. It looks AMAZING, plus from what I’ve heard it’s a pretty great throw. But if you like the looks of the T5, then go for that! I haven’t heard any negative things about MYY other than the immoral business ethics of Chinese manufacturers, but I wouldn’t let it keep you up at night… this company is ROCKIN. Their products, in my opinion, are worth multiple times their value. Sure they might not have the ‘cool’ factor, but if you can throw with the big boys… I gaurentee your Magic YoYo will shut them right up.
Some people talk about the N9 being too loud. Let me say this. Sure it clearly makes a sound upon the throw, but after a couple of seconds it goes quiet as a mouse! I cannot say the same for my Mutant DNA, which CONSTANTLY and CONSISTANTLY noiser with it’s smaller hubstacks. As much as I LOVE my N9, I would not get one over a T5 or a N12. Don’t get me wrong, the shape is great and it is a serious contender, but unless you want hubstacks, I would consider other things first.
Honestly, if you choose to get an expensive throw… I would take $13 of that money and invest in a T5 so you can REALLY see what your money can buy you, then buy another more expensive throw. This is so you can compare the differences in playability between these expensive ‘high end’ yoyo’s and MYY cheap ‘low quality’ yoyo’s. Spoiler alert: there are none. These things RIP.
But if you want to take my advice, and not the cool kids’ advice… I would take your cash and purchase a T5, N12, and N9! That’s $60 for 3 awesome yoyo’s
