Prefer vanguard or gauntlet?


#1

Gonna probably buy one. I’m getting a top deck as well. Opinions on the 2?


#2

I only own YYF yoyos, very tempted to try OD Vanguard and Gauntlet :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#3

I own both. I personally like the Vanguard better. The Gauntlet is fun, but honestly nothing special compared to OD’s other organic-shaped throws. You’ll absolutely love the Topdeck though.


#4

What colors are they in? Mind sharing a pic? :stuck_out_tongue:


#5

Don’t mind at all. These are mine. My boys each have a Vanguard as their daily throw as well, in Ayame and No Rug.

(Excuse the shameless plug.:wink:)


#6

Both are very different. It really just depends what you’re after. Personally I really like the Gauntlet and prefer it over the Vanguard.


(yoyobro!) #7

I do not own any of them but I tried each last weekend and the Top Deck is my favorite of the three, out of the other two I like the Gauntlet better


#8

I have absolutely nothing against the Gauntlet. It’s an excellent throw. It’s just that when I reach for an organic-shaped yoyo, I tend to go for the Markmont Classic or the Topdeck. Nothing else that OD currently makes is quite like the Vanguard.


#9

Wow!! They look really nice!!! Thank you for sharing.


#10

Just received both of my Vanguard and Gauntlet. Gotta say… I love em both!


#11

Both are great. I prefer the Gauntlet but I like comfortable organic yoyos. That being said, I have been throwing my Vangaurd quite a bit.
