I have a grind machine and a protostar. I have mastered all of the tricks up to boingyboing. When should i get my first metal?
When you’re ready, willing, and able. There are kids who start off with high-end metals, and others who have gone a long time before getting their hands on metal.
When you find something you really like and can afford. There’s nothing a metal can do that a Protostar can’t do.
Get a metal yoyo when you feel ready too.
I got my first metal around the level your at, unless you count my maverick that I started out with.
I don’t know about that. I didn’t get that sick feeling in the pit of my stomach when I dinged my Northstar. Only a metal can make you feel that way.
You should get whatever yoyo you want whenever you want! Well, as long as it doesn’t cripple you financially. lol. As long as you can bind, a high-end (most likely expensive) metal yoyo is a work of art that you can admire and play with.
