I haven’t yet played the Surf, but asked Drew Tetz, and here is what he told me:
“the Surf is pretty close to the Rhythm in basic terms of size/weight/etc., but playwise there’s a pretty wild difference (in my eyes at least!) the Rhythm was more or less Hank’s dream 3A yoyo, so it was a workhorse with an emphasis on stability & a generally slower feeling on the string. with the Surf, Hank & Red wanted to really push in a more futuristic direction, trying to imagine where competitive yoyo design will go next. the multiple profile cuts & generally sharper edges mean that it feels quite a bit faster in motion, & is more “sleek” than “floaty.” to put it in even more abstract terms, it feels to me like the difference between a smooth subdued guitar solo in a jazz standard & a fuzzed-out barreling surf freakout. not sure if that makes any sense, but i am quite fond of both!”

That said, this is a yoyo that is on my short list…

For additional perspective, the Blues is a highwalled beast that will stall & regen with the best of them. Plus, it plays completely different with and without weight rings. Possibly my favorite yoyo and music genre. The Rhythm is stable, I consider it fast, and fun.

Recently, I cannot decide whether to get the Surf or an Unengraved Shutter, I think I am starting to make up my mind and go for the Surf. Thanks for this.

That good! Shutters are like hondas. EVERYONE and their grandma has one. Nothing special about it other than its popularity. Go for the Surf and report back. :slight_smile:
