I’ve played my buddy’s shutter and I own a '13 supernova I like both for slight different reasons, but if I had to pick and buy either over again and I could just have one, I think idlesn toward the shutter it just feels slick in the hand and plays like a champ. But that supernova is no slouch and I like it a great deal then I into all thought I started a thread and really was apprehensive to buy the supernova but I got some solid advice and my friend TotalArtist really helped push me over and buy it I’m glad for all the advice and at the time I got it with a severe the I sadly don’t play a lot but even if the severe wasn’t part I ge package deal I’d still buy it again.
To me the shutter plays like a more expensive yoyo and fits my hands nearly perfectly and feels like a smaller yoyo (I believe it is slightly smaller then the supernova don’t quote me but that’s how I remember it feeling) and it’s width was a really nice compliment to the overall diameter the weight was perfect to get it to do what I really wanted it to do. Granted both of these yoyos play better then I do so there is no choice that wierd you to a wrong yoyo, I just think for the money the shutter is the best bang for the buck and the supernova is a close second.
Again each are different animals and each will make you happy in different ways with the shutter you can get accessories and stay at or under the cost if the supernova. Again just depends on which you are drawn to more; I’d say get one and save for the other at a future purchase date.
Hope I wasn’t to long winded and hard to understand.
Happy hunting and enjoy which ever you choose!
