Mods: This question has a little bit of YoYo Exhibition, a bit of Looking for Help/Recommendations, but mostly intended as general question about collecting. Feel free to move as necessary…but this was my best guess. Love ya!
Ok…so is a modest CLYW collection complete without a Peak? Chief is my consistent favorite, and the Puffin is my current number 2. I only like mint/darn near throws with the box…so the Peak would blow out my budget quite a bit. Having never thrown one…I’m not sure how much of the love is sentimental, and how much it holds up as a modern comp throw. Puffin is so comfortable…I can’t see blowing that much coin on another comfort throw.
I’ll happily go to war defending CLYWs as worthy of the attention they get…but I worry that the Peak has been blown up a bit more as a status symbol, or nostalgia piece.
If this thread turns into a CLYW flame war, I’ll ask the mods to delete it. If it’s overly gushy…I won’t get any value out of it. So…be kind. Your favorite brand is awesome too. ;D
Thanks for reading,
