No-Jive 3-in-1

Or my favorite unresponsive yoyo lubed to responsiveness.

KickSides are relatevery responsive, I’m not sure if that counts though.

If not, stock FH0.

I really want a Flying V. Yum, Flying V.

are flying v’s even that good?

Well that was a very stupid question, lol. Of course they are good, silly.


well, yyn and yye spoke veeery highly of it and i heard it wasn’t all that absolutely great

i’m obviously completely biased, but of course i’ll say the flying v. it was designed to be a played responsively, and it was just a pleasant accident that it plays amazingly unresponsive also. it does everything i want it to, and the way i set most of mine up (k-pads and a heavily lubed slim bearing), i can’t get away with any sloppiness. i realize that setup isn’t meant for everyone, but it’s perfect for me.

i’ve also got 35 no jives, which are easily my favorite wood yo-yo’s (and the profile of which obviously inspired the v). i also really dig renegades, as well as stock freehand zeros and the older rubber-weighted freehand 2’s.

Thx guys for your inputs – i’ve been wanting to get good at responsive play once more, and i think ill get a V
