I´m fairly new to yoyoing, started this year, but found collecting yoyos a great hobby, somehow, even more than throwing them.
My level is intermediate at best, I heard many times that learning with cheap yoyos is better, since expensive ones are a waste in an inexperienced hands, I would disagree with that, learning with a good stable yoyo, makes things easier, as a not so good thrower, I can find huge differences between yoyos, in example, I can do a 30-50 seconds combo with my Draupnir, or 20-40 with my Benchmarks, while I´m unable to keep my shutter straight and spinning for more than 10 seconds (lol, I even tried to put a ceramic bearing on it, but is too unstable for my noob hands).
That being said, as an old guy with his own business, I can have the luxury to buy yoyos for collection, and I´m sure few will argue that the YYJ H3X is one of the most beautiful yoyos (if not the most) out there. But I was expecting a non impressive performance, (I always wondered why the titanium ring was almost in the center and not closer to the edge).
Certainly I can´t make an in-depth review since I´m not an expert, but I can say that I became impressed with the stability and everything else (besides the bearing that I replaced immediately), is smooth and forgives my bad technique.
But for some reason, I don´t see it has much popularity as other yoyos of similar price.
Can it be that at high levels is not that good? perhaps because his availability? (It was a pain in the butt to find a blue one), or what could be the reason is not mentioned as much as other yoyos of similar price?
