so there was alot of bickering about this yoyo and how it is bad and things like that, well today i got mine in the mail and would like to tell you the true things about this yoyo.
pics are at the end
first of all there isnt really a name to this yoyo so i call it the shen zhou yoyo which is apparently the brand. so people were turned away from this yoyo because it looked like there was vibe and wobbling in the video about the yoyo. well when i opened my package i found a box with this yoyo in it. inside was the yoyo and on the bottom little box thing was a bag with 2 strings and a extra set of pads…
so when i first opened it i put the string on and threw it down and it was vibeing badly but i took the yoyo apart and just flipped the axle and put it back together and in like 5 throws it was great no wobbling and very little vibe… so it came with some little invisible marks on the yoyo but its black polycarbonate so i couldent see them easy and it doesnt matter cuz its plastic… so now for the guts… it has a C sized concave bearing and im not sure if its difeo but its still a great bearing, i noticed when i flick the bearing it spins for like 11 to 13 seconds and i cant even hear it moving. it also uses spacers like in the protostar and has a long 25 mm axle that can be removed…
it came kinda responsive but i just needed to clean the bearing and break it in. it uses press fit silicone pads. there supposed to be k pads but they are a little wider so idk. the look of this yoyo is very comparable to the legacy it is v shaped and kind of has flat rims… and actually its about the same size of the legacy too. it has 2 gold logo things on each inner rim and a logo on one half in the center ish.
now lets get to the hubstacks. so it has the same kinda hubstack thing as the pgm2 and has a sized bearings. it also comes with clear hubstacks on already which i found hard to get off. but i was able to get them off and i put some yellow rice stacks on mine. i found the hubstacks to be pretty good i cant really compare it to anything but they are good. when using them it does make the yoyo a little noisier and sorta makes it slightly vibe but not noticably. i didnt have any problems with it. also yes ricestacks and yoyofactory hubstacks would fit this.
to sum up i am very happy with this yoyo and i am glad i didnt spend more money on a pgm 2 when this thing is great. trust me for 20 bucks plus 3 bucks shipping and handleing at yoyomamma.com and u can buy it at amazon for 20 plus 4 bucks shipping.at first when i got it it seemed to show its flaws but as i played with it the flaws went away and u will find that to. ( not saying that it has major flaws). so for 23 bucks this yoyo is a steal and a true performer im finding myself using it more than my yuuksta. this thing plays way better than my maverick speedmaker and to me as good as my yuuksta and new breed but what do i no lol… jk ;D
vibe free 9.5/10 this thing has very little vibe sometimes idk its confusing.
price 11/10 great deal
this yoyo is not to be missed…
