Anyone happen to know what pads the YYF G.5 uses? Please note that I’m talking about the mini yoyo, not the regular G5. They are fairly uncommon since I think they maybe only did one run of them. I unearthed one out of my yoyo pile and have had it in my pocket as a bit of a fun novelty for the past week. It’s playable, but I cannot get a nice tight bind with it.
They did more than 1 run of them. I have a few of them myself. It’s hard to get good consistent binds with them because they were made a little too light for the design. I always wished Ben would have made some g.5’s out of steel instead of aluminum to correct the weight issue.
Ahhh, that makes a lot of sense. Ah well, perhaps I’ll put it away and dig out a popstar instead. Doesn’t have the pullstart hubstack fun, but throws better.
