I am thinking about buying a plastic yoyo and am not looking for something in particular other than I want something different than my Hectic and not very expensive. Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated.
Might check out the plastics from YYJ, YYF, and Duncan. All of them are great and one might fit your preferences (or lack of).
I haven’t formed a preference yet so I am trying to try something new.
If you’re in the market for plastic yo-yos then I recommend looking at some of the YYJ plastics. Since you’re looking for something different compared to your Hectic, try these:
Lyn Fury - This is a more intermediate to advanced yo-yo. The gap is relatively wide compared to other YYJ plastics, and the shape is very rounded.
Kickside - This is yo-yo feels very bulky in your hand because it has flat rims and a rounded body. The response setting is more for less experienced players because it is more responsive than double yo-ring.
Legacy - This plastic is a heavy weight. Add in a wide gap and silicone pad response, and you’ve got an amazing unresponsive yo-yo.
Out of the YYF plastics the only one I’d recommend is the Plastic Grind Machine. Like the Kickside, the shape feels large in your hand. This yo-yo is also smooth and unresponsive on the string and grinds. The hubstacks are also a plus.
i think a protostar or a grind maching is a really good choice
duncam 2010 freehand. You can find it on this site, or if you prefer to get it from a store instead of online, Toys R Us.
You could try the yoyojams that have solid spin axle:
Revolution, DMII, Atmosphere, and New Breed. If you can wait you could buy some of the new yoyojams: SFX, Hitman Pro and SR-71.
There is the Protostar, Legacy, Lyn Fury, Modded FHZ, and New Freehand 2, etc. Also, if you would consider the YYJ Hybrids as “plastics”, then there is the Mini Mo-Tu, Hitman, DM v1 and v2, X-Convict, etc.
Its a safe choice to get a legacy because of it’s great play for 1a and 5a
To add to this:
Legacy + (insert yoyo-made-for-1a name here); 3a.
