Offtring or 1a yoyo?


#1

Should i get a new yoyo for 1a or should i get an offstring yoyo and 2 10 ball bearings? My budget is $65. Don’t forget to post which yoyo i should get for either option.


#2

Why not do both? haha, there both really fun.

If you want a 1a yoyo get:
Yoyofactory Northstar.
If you want a metal yoyo get a:
Yoyofactory Lunatic or Yuuksta.
I have those yoyo’s and there awesome.

For off-string good yoyo’s are:
If you want a oversized one get:
Yoyojam Bigyo
If you want a smaller one get:
Yoyojam Fiesta.

For 4A, the Big Yo is great. It’s very big for easy catching therefore easier to learn with.
The Fiesta is a great player although it’s a tad smaller than Big Yo. But either is fine.

For 1A, I would suggest the Yuuksta, probably one of the best you can get for 65$ unless you go to second-hand products. It’s smooth, grindable, great playing all metal, just good.

I would suggest going for 1A, as if you’re not too good in 1A, you can learn and progress a bit more till you hit a point where you think you are pretty decent with 1A, you can start to fool around with 4A. Don’t get me wrong, you can start 4A even if you’re a begginer but I think progessing some 1A skills would get you into a better position to start 4A.

Actually i could. Well i guess i could get the fiesta and the blitzfire, too bad they’re from two different sites.


#5

For 4A the Duncan Flying Panda is nice. So are the Shinwoo Griffen and YYJ Fiesta, though I like the first two a little better. They are all well under $20 if I’m not mistaken.

For 1A there really are almost too many options haha. It depends on what you want really. YYJ has many great throws in the $40 and under range and for about the same price the Duncan Raptor is great too. There are plenty of throws at great prices. So just do a little research and buy one you think you will like. :slight_smile:


#6

Ok so i will get the blitzfire and a offstring it will either be the Fiesta, griffin Wing, or hayabusa. Which one do you think is best or should i not get an offstring and get a popstar with the blitzfire.


#7

Id say 1a yyf dv888. but then, i hate 4a ;D


#8

I think a Hayabusa or a Flying Panda would work good for 4A. I am using a FHZ right now, and it actually works good for 4A, and those two throws are basically modified FHZ’s. And, that leaves you enough money to buy a $40-45 throw, like a Raptor or a DM2.


#9

if u think you really wanna get good at 4a then get a offstring yoyo if u are just strictly 1a like me i would get 2 1a yoyos.


#10

You can do 4A and 1A on the same yoyo. You just need skill. Like 4A on a 888x.


#11

Never mind the blitzfire is out of the options because now they won’t be shipped till the 23rd :(. I will be getting the griffin wing still but now i will buy the raptor.


#12

well I say that is a good choice and clean the raptor’s bearing because it is semi responsive or another bearing


#13

I got another question. Which is smoother the Raptor or the Dingo.


#14

Well, both are very smooth, but the Dingo has a 10 ball bearing which makes it silent and smoother. 10 ball bearings also take longer to break in (not a good thing).

But really, the Raptor is smooth enough, it’s a great player, same with Dingo. Dingo has a thinner profile and a larger bearing wall.


#15

I think i will buy the raptor because it is cheaper so i can save up for an off-string yoyo later.


#16

Yeah, between Raptor and Dingo, definitely go for the Raptor.

Make sure you have a new bearing for it, or way to clean it’s bearing!


#17

Ok i was going to buy a new bearing anyways. now if only my mom will order it tonight.


#18

Raptor + 10 Ball brg + Griffin Wing = $62

If it’s not too late, you can still get it all.


#19

It is now. Just ordered it. I ordered two so i can have one for my other yoyos. if i can I will get the Griffin wing in about 4 weeks if i can.
