The best of CLYW

Hey people of the forum, I was just curious to see what people thought of the individual clyw yo-yos. I would like to see people put every CLYW throw they have ever tried in order from best to worst. What do you guys think? I haven’t tried enough of their throws to make an accurate list, so I just have to look at what you guys say.

make a list of all the Caribou lodge yo-yos you’ve thrown from least to greatest.

  1. Arctic Circle
  2. Campfire
    Those are the only two I have thrown and I only own the arctic circle haha.

By the way, your throw looks awesome!

I’ve got one of each model and here is my list. Keep in mind that i really enjoy all of them so this list was hard to put together.

  1. Chief
  2. Avalanche
  3. BvM
  4. Arctic Circle
  5. Marmot
  6. Camp Fire
  7. Gnarwhal
  8. Canvas
  9. Bassalope (small Bearing)
  10. Peak (2nd run)
  11. Sasquatch
