Punchline vs Superstar vs G5


#1

I have a punchline which I like, but I thought it was a little heavy and slow. (I’m a fast yoyo type of person) I may be able to trade it for a Superstar or G5, so which do you recomend?


#2

probably the superstar, but none of those are really fast


#3

The Chik probably.

I tried one. They’re pretty good.

Nice and kinda fast


#4

A lot of people recommend the Punch Line as a rather floaty yoyo. :wink: I haven’t tried the Repeater but it’s only 1g heavier.

Not saying either are light (they are not) but that it’s not considered a heavy and slow model! I certainly don’t find it heavier and slower than the majority of my yoyos.

Out of the yoyos you listed, I don’t have a recommendation. But you should consider a Code 1 if you want light and nimble. That probably doesn’t help your trade scenario.

Oh the punchline was solid to me. I already have a code 1 and it’s my favorite yoyo!


#6

Heh, should’ve looked at the sidebar!

Was it an original Punch Line or the Repeater? Just curious at this point. It’s mostly the OG that’s referred to as “floaty”.


#7

Hmmm, it’s the og


#8

That’s odd. I consider the OG Punchline to be a pretty floaty throw, similarly to the Code 1. I guess this just shows how vague the term “floaty” is.


#9

YeaH the, punchline was more flowy to me than floaty.


#10

The superstar is a whole lot faster than the G5 in terms of play


#11

They both can go fast if you take off the stacks and put nubs on though
