Alright to start out this is my first review so any constructive tips would be helpful thanks.
G-Squared Albatross I’ll start with the specs
Diameter: 56mm/ 2.20 inches
Width: 43.55mm/ 1.71 inches
Gap Width: 4.25mm/.17 inches
Weight: 64.4 grams
Bearing Size: Size C comes with onedrop 10ball bearing
Response: Flowable Silicone. Brett has posted that it will take onedrop flow groove pads but there
will be a small gap that will not effect play.
This yoyo has been in the works for a little while and is the design of Brett Grimes and Jacob Gross from highspeed yoyo. Last names both starting with G thus the G-Squared for the company name. I have been looking forward to this yoyo since in saw the designs up online. When I saw the colors that were coming out I was even more blown away they all look super cool. I got the cool water edition which is sliver and light blue with blue splash. Pictures are at the end of the review.
When I opened the box the color was even better then the pictures. The finish is super smooth and great for grinds.
Smooth as silk is all I can say. No vibe and nice long spins. The Flowable silicone was not snaggy at all out of the box.
-Feels great in your hand
-Smooth finish for grinds
-Smooth on the string and grinds
This part is always tough for me but it was a little lighter then I usually like but I’m getting accustom to the weight.
Okay just to let you know what level I’m on. I started throwing in July of 2011 and can do most of the tricks on YYE and some other ones as well.
So I throw it for about 6 hours. Played it straight out of the box. Did not change the bearing or string. I usually like Center trac bearing but left in the 10ball. All I can say is it handled everything and I was even able to learn a few new tricks with it today. Plays a little floaty compared to the Code1 I have been playing lately but not super fast. It was easy to control on every trick. This yoyo is on par with anything from onedrop or YYF. A real player.
I would not hesitate to recommend this yoyo to anyone looking for a full sized yoyo that is smooth on the string and fun to play. I might have to get another.
Thanks for reading and keep throwing everyone
