I actually agree, I think the SK is kinda meh. But it is a great value and the machining quality + pedigree is fantastic, so I don’t really see a need to complain about it. That made me think… what popular yo-yo have you tried that you “just couldn’t get into?”
For me it is these two:
SF Bliss, plays like a bog-standard, unremarkable bimetal V to me. But some people worship this thing.
Offset Outlier, I think it’s way too narrow and it reminds me of the Horizon in being large in diameter but fairly narrow. I have tried for days and this one just doesn’t fit my play style at all for whatever reason. I literally… can’t get into it
Note that you don’t have to list any yo-yo you have ever tried and did not like, just the ones that are perceived as somewhat popular, and other people seem to like it?
(For the record I’d say 80% of the yo-yos I get, I pretty much like! Truly bad yoyos are exceedingly rare, there are indeed some which after using for a while I find don’t jibe with my personal preferences, but aren’t “bad” by any means.)
