If we’re talking colorways then the top picks that come to mind are Earth Swirl, Fire Swirl, 2nd Run 28 Stories, Frozen Mammoth, Grizzly Bear Clown Town 2 and Chesterman Beach. Just in case anyone wondered why I love Peaks, it’s because I think they have the best colorways in yoyos, not because of their place in modern yoyoing history and definitely not because of how well they play (they play fine but they’re nothing even remotely special compared to what is out there these days). There are some other fantastic CLYW colorways but those Peaks are definitely the bees knees as far as I’m concerned. I’ll have to wait until I actually have it in hand but the Deep Woods Quake looks insane in pictures.
There’s definitely something to be said for the classy look of a dark solid yoyo like an obsidian Markmont. Next. or even a single solid color like a good old aqua 888.
As far as shape, I can really get on board with anything from a Peak/Canvas/FHZ shape to strange Cascade/Dietz/Battosai shapes, round 888 shapes, undercuts, H shaped. I love them all.
