Plastic Showdown


#1

Hey guys, I’m looking for an Upgraded plastic, (maybe Delrin) and I have narrowed it down to these: YYA Crazy-D, YYF Severe, YYA The V, YYJ Inspire, and the OD Rally. Just wanted to know what one of these five throws you guys would recommend. I already have the Diffusion, in case you were going to recommend that :wink:

I don’t know if I would count the inspire, it has metal rims. I’ve heard the Crazy-D is really good.


#3

Do you have a classic with a concave bearing and yyf pads in it? It’s good.


#4

I love my rally, but its CRAZY loud wity anything but a stock 10-ball


#5

Thats what I thought when I added the Inspire, but I guess it’s “close enough.” XD Have you ever played any of these yoyos?


#6

About how fast does the Rally play?


#7

I heard that the classic is REALLY floaty… Is that true? And no I don’t have one.


#8

Uhhh… floaty does not have a fixed definition… but I’ve never heard it called that, and I wouldn’t even say that it’s even close to any definition I’ve heard.


#9

Severe is the best plastic


#10

Personally like a YYF protostar or northstar much more than a rally for whatever reason. Most of those others I haven’t played. I can do any combo I know on a protostar. can’t say the same with a rally. I’m not trying to bash any yoyo, but these are my experiences.


#11

The Dark Magic II is pretty nice as well. It’s got metal rims.


#12

A lot of people say that. Personally? I hate it. Compared to most delrins and some other plastics. It feels just so cheap in my hands. Mine also vibes pretty bad and came with a sub-par bearing.


#13

Oh… well what is your definition of floaty.


#14

Which one do you prefer? The Protostar or the Northstar?


#15

What about the triad?

That said the Crazy D is my favorite and the only one I’ve kept. I owned a severe which felt hollow and the V gets crazy vibe due to the screw in caps whereas the D is press fit. I just sold off my inspire because it feels really heavy on the string and is a bit slower. The OD rally is an amazing plastic though. Id’ say the rally spins longer and is more stable than the crazy d but there’s nothing that makes it stand out. It’s strictly a competition oriented throw that’s nice. The Crazy D however plays more mid speed and I personally have a lot of fun with it.


#16

protostar, but not to bash the northstar. I feel in actual performance and which one is “better”, its a tie. I like the protostar better because it plays a tad faster, but that’s really it. Many argue the northstar is better, but the only real difference is the extra weight on the northstar.


#17

Thanks that really narrowed it down! If you had to choose between the crazy-D and the Rally (just for everyday play) which one would you choose?


#18

I like the Triad, but I don’t like its price :frowning:


#19

What about the counter attack?


#20

I love my Triad, but I kind of agree with you about the price. It’s pretty steep for a hybrid, but boy does it play well.
