Hey guys! Today I got my shutter at yoyo-club. This thing is a beast, and a thing of beauty, so I thought I’d do a review of it. Please feel free to critique me in the comments. On to the review.

This thing looks amazing. I love the step in the cup, and I love the step in the catch zone. The designs, colors, and everything looks flawless. Yoyofactory really hit the nail right on the head with the etching on this one!
This yoyo feels good in the hand, although it can feel quite large at times. My middle finger fits perfectly in the little indentation in the catch zone. This finish is not made for grinding, although I’m sure you could finger grind if you really wanted to. I love the shiny-ish color that this finish has.
This yoyo plays amazing. It’s super smooth, and whips around on the string pretty fast. It’s not the fastest yoyo, but it’s not slow either. I’m not good at horizontal, but this yoyo can do it well (Atleast what I can do so far with horizontal.) When I got this yoyo, I expected it to be just like a dv888, well playing but nothing super special. I was wrong. This is 10x better than I expected. You can do some pretty sick inner ring grinds with this as well. I timed myself and got a 10 second inner ring grind.
The shutter is a great yoyo, it’s super smooth, and it has an amazing price tag. In my opinion, they should just stop producing the dv888 and produce this. Its looks are stunning, its play is stunning, and I love it. It has a great inner ring, and the cup looks stunning with the engraving.
