Most of us understand our preferences will change, or at least they do for many of us. Often, we don’t know what we really like until we try a bunch of stuff. Eventually, we get lucky enough to find what works better or best for us. Sometimes our preferences aren’t what we thought they were until we try something far outside what we think our preferences are.
In this case, we’re talking about an undersized yoyo compared to a mid sized yoyo, coupled with the fact that the new one was played constantly for 2 weeks before getting “bored” with it. I think what has happened is you got used to the smaller size and shape, and now moving back to something larger feels very clumsy. Whenever you play any yoyo a lot almost exclusively, then go to something else, there’s doing to be an adjustment, or in this case, a readjustment period. I think that’s just all it is: re-adjustment period.
I pretty much know what my preferences are. Of course, this doesn’t prevent me from trying, buying and enjoy things NOT in that category.
I agree with some of the other statements. When I leave in the AM to walk my kids to school, I have my YYE medium back on me, which contains at the moment a Destiny set for 5A, an SFX, a Phenom, an Anglam and a couple of Classics in the large pocket. I also have a Fiesta XX and Go Big hanging off it.
In my pockets will be more yoyos, which randomly rotates. This week it’s been a Freq. Wav, Avalanche and a Gnarwal, plus an XLR8 and something else random since I have been wearing a sweater with pockets since the temperature dropped this week. I will also have at least 2 Unleashed on me.
I will also have a DM2 on a holder.
Why? I never know what I might want or what I will be in the mood for. Some days, I just stick with the Unleashed pair. Sometimes I just don’t feel like using anything. When I go to meets,I bring my YYE 8-hole competition bag with 2 more off-strings hanging off it(ZRO and Jet Set), and often my 72-star “Case of Wonders”. Of course, meets are more about sharing than playing, and I’ll gladly stick to a DM2 or Classic while others go through the case.
I really mix things up. Some days I just stick with the same yoyo. Sometimes that ay turns into weeks or months(usually not). Some days I just can’t find something that moves me. Other times I can’t get started. Other days, I change it up a lot.
Whenever you are exclusive to something, going to something else requires an adjustment period. What is happening to you is normal.
