I’m new to the forum and yoyoing too. I saw some awesome videos and wondered if I was too old for this. Anyway I went into a local yo-yo shop about a week ago and told them I wanted to start yoyoing and left with a green yoyofactory onestar. I never even held a yoyo before and they recommended an unresponsive yoyo as I found out when I got home.
Well basicly I spent the last week watching videos, learning to how bind and a few simple tricks like brain twister and plastic whip/laceration, but I really got into to it, my middle finger is even bruised as hell.
I checked out the classifieds on our local forum and found a Duncan Metropolis and a Hspin Good and Evil 2: Poison both for about 35$ and both in pretty good condition. I know both are way better yoyos than what I need, but I just got a feverish craving for a new yoyo now and these seem like good deals.
Which one would be better for A1 overall? I know the Hspin one is a bit of a collectors item, so that’s pretty cool, but I’m kind of afraid I’d ruin them fast, even though I only play on my carpet. Otherwise as far as aesthetics go both are fine with me and I don’t really have any preferences yet.
Thanks in advance for the advice!
