Good and Bad
*Good :
-Long Spin (Enough to do 2 Rotations Gyroscopic Flop comfortably with a normal throw ; spins like a truck)
-Thumb Grinding (The shape of the Rims makes it easy to place your Thumb there and the Aluminium is very Smooth)
-Grinding (The Aluminium causes low Friction between your arm and the Equilateral, allowing Long and Smooth Arm Grinds, but your Grind must be done well)
-Strong Response (Even when its spin is low at the end of a trick/combo, it still binds back well ; comes back to your hand with a thud even after your longest combos)

*Bad :
-Too much Response (Sometimes the yo-yo might grab the string and come back fast and hard ; during times when more string is on the gap)

Author’s Comments (Based on my Experience with my 1 Equilateral)
*Mirror Caps on the Inside come with a Protective Cover ; To keep it mint, don’t peel them off. And to Show Off, let it Shine!
*It may be difficult to open the Equilateral when you first get it. Don’t worry, just play around with it for sometime (1-2 hours) and it will probably be fine.
*Tricks like Eli Hops and Jade Whip become a lot easier to land, especially Eli Hops.
*An Incredible Yo-Yo, if you are looking to progress from Plastic to Full Metal, it is Excellent Choice.

That’s is it for my Review! I hope that it benefits you A LOT. :slight_smile:

Great review!

About the response, maybe you can change the pads. You can try the red ones for example. 8)
