I have a Dingo, Yelets, 54, and Summit.
I learned to throw unresponsive with the Dingo. I didn’t know any different. I liked the size and quality of it. It was given to me by a good friend who had owned it and never learned to bind. I told him I was interested in unresponsive yoyo’s and he traded me the throw! Looking back I wish I hadn’t learned on an undersize. LOL
After 3 months of playing with the Dingo I decided I really liked Yoyoing and wanted to try getting a full size yoyo so I ordered the 54 for Christmas and snagged a discounted Yelets.
When they arrived I tried both. Liked the Yelets a little better. It felt better to me. Looking back I am sure it is because I learned on the Dingo.
I picked up a used Summit from the BST and started playing with that. Suddenly my Yelets started to feel very narrow and small. LOL
I like the Summit. It is HUGE to me! I like how easy it is to hit strings. I don’t like how easy it is to hit the wrong string. : It is a fun throw.
Yesterday I picked up my 54 that I have barely played with. I threw it around a little and thought that it felt pretty good. Tried some tricks and nailed every trick in my tiny lexicon. Then I did something I had never done before. I landed 5 eli hops in a row! Usually I struggle to land 1 or 2!
So here is my dilemma… How come the yoyo I initially was underwhelmed with and didn’t throw hardly at all turned out to be the yoyo I throw the best?
Anyone else every throw one yoyo exclusively for a few weeks and then pick up a different yoyo and realize it seemed to fit your play better?
