Returning Recommendations

Hey guys,

I’m returning to throwing and have been looking at some recommendation posts for yoyos. I currently own a CLYW Chief, CLYW Sasquatch, and G2 nessie. I’m looking for a well-rounded yoyo that’s both fun and performs well. I’m going to buy a Markmont Classic, but I’m looking for another throw to add to the purchase, preferably under or around $100. Here are some of the yoyos I was already looking at, so please let me know what you would recommend of these throws, or if you have any other recommendations!

One Drop Rev 1 is a really great throw that does everything well.


Though I haven’t personally played one…I’ve heard nothing but great things about the Grasshopper GTX. A lot of people say it’s one of their faves.

If you like pink (the only color in stock atm) there’s also the 2sickyoyos Endgame which is a performance driven beast.

The One Drop Kuntosh 5000QV is worth consideration too I think. It comes in a ton of cool colors too!

Are you open to getting second hand yos through buy/sell/trade? You could try to hunt down a G2 (G Squared) Banshee. Such an amazing yoyo!


The Grasshopper GTX is an excellent choice. The only other bi-metal that I consider to be its equal in terms of price/performance ratio is the TopYo Dominator (which is about $5 less expensive).

If you’re looking for another monometal to complement the Markmont Classic, I would enthusiastically recommend any of the following One Drops:

  • VTWO
  • Top Deck
  • Rev.1
  • Kuntosh 5000QV

All of those are stellar performers; it really comes down to shape preference.
