so, I just got my second metal yoyo - the shu-ta. I kept reading about the shutter and thought the shu-ta would be an upgrade, with better spin and stability and very durable. My other yoyo is the horizon.
I really like the shu-ta - I found, for some reason, i seem to land it on the string a little easier. It is also comfy to hold.
However, I noticed pretty quickly that it is not nearly as stable as the horizon. after doing a long trick (well, long for me) like budda’s revenge, gerbil, or cold fusion, I notice that the shu-ta is tilting quite a bit making for an awkward and difficult bind. The horizon, by contrast, sees to keep it’s nice vertical orientation very well.
While I don’t expect to purchase anything else for a little while, I have learned the importance of high stability. So, my question to the group is what yoyo’s are even more stable than the Horizon? The ones I am most considering for my next purchase are Kuntosh, Kenshin, Steel, and Sleipnir (I want to stick to around $100 but will go up a little if needed). The Kenshin is of particular interest to me because of it’s V shape (my yoyos are H and I want to try something different) and the material it is made of (which sounds like it can be distributed to the rims well for good stability). If anyone is familiar with these throws and the Horizon, I would love to hear your take on the stability question.
