I’m completely torn between the spyy punchine repeater and the new solaris. I know this all comes down to personal preference but I was just curious to see what you guys would pick if you had the means to pick either of these up.
personally, i find the punchline to be very fun to throw. i tend to play more slowly with it and spend more time ‘exploring elements’ rather than practicing execution. in terms of ‘mainstream performance’, the solaris blows it out of the water. i find i have more spin (and more importantly, greater control near the end of spin), better regen control, and more stability with the solaris. if you like a chunkier, more bulbous profile, i’d go with the punchline. otherwise, the solaris is pretty tough to argue against.
First off I would move this to the Looking for help/reccomendation section.
There is a move tab in the upper right corner of your post.
As far as the yoyos go. I would go with the Solaris which IMO looks like the nicest SPYY yet.
I’ve also heard the Repeaters eat strings, but I’ve never had any experience with one.
Never mind moving it haha its already there
If I were looking for a competition yoyo I would buy Solaris. Its shape makes it good for horizontal tricks and more extreme play.
If I were picking a yoyo for my collection/for fun/for relaxed play I would probably get Punchline.
The Solarus is way better looking so there for it is better. Get that one.
(because looks are all anyone needs, right?)
