Thanks for the heads up about the code. Ordered some pads with it
You can buy a $50 gift certificate and give it to yourself at Christmas.
Okay this will be the last suggestion I make for now haha…I’m honestly not trying to be obnoxious!
The Top-Yo Impulse is only $32. You could go with that and a Loop 360 for $40
Lol all great suggestions, I have all yyf loop sets aside from 2020s so no need there nor a sherpa lol but everything else is being looked at like I said this is more to get me looking at different stuff so even if I have it I appreciate interested suggestions
What are code scales??
I started actually trying to learn 2a starting last month. I try to make Tuesdays designated 2a days, but 2a hardddd.
though I can do a couple loops with both hands before completely admitting defeat, which is progress I guess.
Also I second the TopYo throws suggested. They look super clean and high quality, even though the price is so low. Definitely consider the Silenus
alleycat 650b if you’re into responsive… even the deep state.
applied at checkout
it’s a tool used by programmers to judge each other
I have a 650b and love it, deep states seem to get mixed love but it is now on my list of considerations!
Also having never owned a top yo i have their entire catalogue on my list as well to look at
Another vote here for the TopYo Silenus, I was just playing with one of mine today. I have four throws from TopYo and so far the Silenus is my favorite, nothing mind blowing just kind of a fun cheap yoyo, it’s also just one of my favorite looking designs.
You can get yourself high-end bearing removal tool from YYR
Or, just get extra bearings. You definately can`t go wrong with more bearings!
I’m probably no fun, but as Ben Franklin said “A penny saved is a penny earned.” Even if shipping was $10, you still come out $30 ahead if you just buy what you need and pay for shipping.
I should probably cross post this to the unpopular opinion thread as well…
Lol no you aren’t wrong, and this is something I have considered but I wouldn’t mind getting a new yoyo, the getting to free shipping has just become my excuse
Oh my gosh $$55!!
It should massage my feet at that price
I’m just getting a Silenus, it’s on the post but have nothing but good vibes from my topyos.
Silenus and another bearing dude sounds a good plan.
I will chuck the Dove in the ring too, food 4 thought.
My first yoyo was a Topyo Impulse I was gifted by a dude I barely knew, after we’d talked a few times and I mentioned I thought yoyo looked like fun. The yoyo community is the best.
I like the Impulse, but I honestly don’t think it’s anything super special. It’s a good mid-price, mid-performance throw imo. I think part of it is the finish, mine has a polished finish so it’s not very good at grinds or fingerspins. I really like doing grinds, so that’s kind of a big deal to me. And I will admit I’m probably a little biased against it since my bearing seized up and I had a very responsive yoyo for a while until I got that sorted. It was a good introduction to the world of yoyo, as it’s a good throw and good value for the price (Especially for me, free!). If they had a better finish on the newer version, that would go a long way to improve its standing in my eyes. And I’m not trying to say it’s a bad throw, I still use mine sometimes. But if I had an extra $50 to spend, it wouldn’t be my first choice.
I like the suggestion to get something different to try a new style, like 2A or 4A. You could grab a fixed-axle wooden yoyo to try, I’ve recently been considering one and a lot of people suggest the Legend Wing as a good inexpensive starter. Add a pack of cotton string, as I’ve heard YYE has good ones (haven’t tried them myself though). I don’t know what styles of yoyo you’ve tried but if you haven’t tried 5A I’d recommend getting a counterweight to mess around with. I really love my Raindrop, and I’ve heard good things about Porykon.
That’s just kind of my style of shopping, tbh. I like to pick lots of little things to get the most bang for my buck. Not so much now in the yoyo market, but back when I was really into cubing I’d much rather spend my money on several different good cubes and puzzles to mess around with different things, rather than spend it all on one top-of-the-line cube. Yoyos are a bit different, I’m more likely to spend more for a good yoyo but it can still be fun to grab some small things to try out.
Thanks for coming to my TED talk. Sorry this post got so long lol
Haha ty! This post is all about the discussion so glad to have you discuss your opinion. As far as styles I have been around a long long while so there isn’t much I haven’t tried. 4a is my biggest weakness for sure, but I have too many off strings because I think they are cool! I have really considered getting a new looping set. I keep looking at the c3 initiator sets as well as the something Lp sets. That grey in the Lp is so unique! I also am probably the only person who took a deep dive into fixed axle play and never bought a tmbr so I should probably look there as well lol
Silenus is right on your budget
