Pocket Change?


#1

Hey, sorry if this is in the wrong spot, I don’t know where it goes. Anyway, I was wondering if the pocket change was a good yoyo. I want a good yoyo that can just fit in my pocket and has decent spin times. I’ve heard some things about it, but I would just to hear more. Thanks!

As an offstring yoyo it’s pretty good. As a 1A yoyo, there are definitely better options out there.

If you are looking for a pocket yoyo, the Pocket change it is most probably not the one you are looking for. I would recommend the Dingo, Popstar, or the Micromo instead.

No, it’s not a good throw. It vibes like a washing machine, and those plastic parts inside will crack if you hit the pavement. Get something else instead, maybe a lyn fury.

While I can certainly second the comment on fragility, mine didn’t vibrate as badly as many people say it does.

I still won’t recommend the Pocket Change, though. Look at the YoyoJam plastic line, such as the Lyn Fury, Legacy, Kickside, or Speedmaker. If you’re looking for cheaper options, look at the Yoyofactory plastics, such as the One or Whip.

Yes it will crack and may disssapoint but that would be why it is cheap.


#7

Even though it might not be a good throw, it does look pretty cool, and would be good to add to any collection


#8

If you want a beater or just want it for a collection then that is a good yoyo to get but to learn tricks and try to do anything complicated on it is not the best choice.


#9

I meant like something to play around with, not like a main through that you play with a lot that will break in about the first month of you having it

OK. I can see that. I don’t buy and add to my collection just to add to the collection. Everything is gonna get thrown. A lot. To each their own. There’s no real right or wrong. As long as we’re having a good time, it’s all good.

Exactly :slight_smile:


#12

its relatively cheap, performs really well, a yoyo that will satisfy most needs, its the protostar…

but it is about twice as much as the yyj plastics…

I just want a decent, cheap pocket yoyo, does the speed maker do that well? The protostar doesn’t fit in my pocket and is out of my price range,i would get it though, maybe I’ll get a northstar after christmas.
