Medium size is hard to get out of those yoyos you listed.
Have you considered a CUT? It’s one of the few medium sized metals out there. If you want one of the yoyos on the list, find out which you like more: undersized or regular sized?

If you like undersized, get the 888 or Skyline. A good way to choose between those is the shape,
H-shape or butterfly shape? If you like the H-shape, go with the Skyline, if you like the butterfly shape, go with the 888.

Now, if you like large yoyos, get the DNA or SuperStar. And the exact same things go for those too: H-shape or butterfly shape. If you like H-shape go with the SuperStar, if you like the butterfly shape, go with the DNA.

If you don’t know which shape is which look at these photos:

That’s the SuperStar with the H-shape, notice how on the rims there is a part where it goes higher, that’s the H-shape.
Here is the butterfly shape:

Notice how it doesn’t look like the H-shape, it doesn’t go up like the H-shape.

The difference between the two is how they feel. The H-shape also makes more of the wheight towards the rim, making it spin a bit longer.
So which one do you like?

Out of those yo-yos, I would probably recommend the SuperStar for you.

Fixed.

If you feel the need to fix that, you should fix the rest of it too, while you’re at it. :slight_smile:

A Superstar is a great choice. It is medium sized, and because of the crazy weight distribution, it has amazing sleep times.

You can see it used here…

Pwnage.

Those are good choices- but remember, you don’t have to have the best to be the best. Look around on YYN. They have tons.
