Hey there, I’ve been out of the “convertible beginner plastics” game for a while, and was wondering what the community’s thoughts on these newer models are.
What I need
- tug responsive with
- option to convert to unresponsive (bearing and/or axel included)
- good size/ shape for little hands
- preferably ballpark of $20 or less, but more is fine too
- in stock [lol]
I’ve heard nothing but greatness about the Recess First Base, but I cannot find them in stock anywhere
I’ve also considered the Replay/ Replay pro, but I just don’t like the way those come directly from the factory. (pads that sit proud of the response walls, and kind of loud…).
I like the Sage pro pack (YYF Onestar iirc), that was my first “nice” beginner yoyo back in the day. But YYE doesn’t stock them and I’d like to support you guys if at all possible.
These will be for some of my acquaintance’s kiddos who have already gotten up to speed with the “basics” (sleeper, gravity pull) on Butterfly XTs. They’re just ready for an upgrade to something a little more powerful and capable. I’d really like to hear @YoYoExpertGarrett’s input on this, as well as anyone else who would like to chime in.
I wish the YYF Protostars were able to be set up with slim bearings…
