Turning Point Palpitation or Isotope 2.


#1

Title pretty much says it all. But I pretty much want to know which one plays better.

I’m just looking for general thoughts on these two yoyos.

Ps. I know I post a lot of topics but its hard to decide XD And I want to make sure I get a good throw.


#2

I dont have an isotope 2, but my Palpitation takes up like 95% of my time throwing since i got it a few weeks back. Its not mega fast but plays fast enough for everything for sure. It feels fun to throw and is performancewise amazing! If you get a Palp, you cant be disappointed, there is a reason why people put it up there with the draupnir.
From all i can tell the Isotope2 is just a little (and i mean a little!) lighter. Everyone says they are very similar but i d go with a palpitation since its much more talked about that the iso.

I’ve never tried the Isotope 2, but I can tell you that the Palpitation is awesome. Some people say that the Palp plays heavy, but I think it feels just right, with a nice precense on the string. It’s super stable, easily maneuverable, quite fast, and has a powerful spin that lasts a long time. I do agree that it’s right up there with the Draupnir. Out of every yoyo I own, it’s the only throw I loved enough to get second one. Although, I would still say that $254 isn’t worth it. I got mine at $207 in Japan. If you can find one below $200, that would be great.

For me 250 are worth it :smiley: but of course getting it cheaper is always better :smiley: really want to get a 2. one too.

I think someone is actually selling one in great condition on the bst? check it out!

Yeah

A 3rd run Orange palpitation with one tiny surface mark

You should consider it :wink:


#6

Yeah I saw that, I wish they had that color somewhere. Sadly my parents wont let me use the BST :confused:


#7

The guy is very credible (as far as i know) and its much cheaper, and if you pay via paypal you d be safe from scamming. maybe you can convince them :wink: good luck!


#8

It kills me to know you’ll pay $250+ for a new run palpitation .
Considering the older runs are a lot better , and the orange one is pretty sought after


#9

I love both, but I was able to buy my Palpitation for $65. So beat up, but soooo good. I’ve been playing with it so much since I got it.


#10

Yeah sadly my parents don’t really trust stores besides Yoyoexpert :confused: So the BST isn’t really an option.


#11

I’d like to hear more about Isotope 2. I think I’d like the Iso weight better than Palp weight.

That blue purple palp is calling my name though…

Why are the older run Palps considered better than newer runs?


#12

According to people on the Facebook BST the older runs where smaller and less mass manufactured .

I have played a newer run and my old run orange . the old run does play smoother


#13

try a shorter axle


#14

I’m going to get one tee hee


#15

Isotope 2 is lighter and faster with little difference in spin or stability.


#16

So the difference I heard is

Palpitation: little heavier, (slightly)more stable, more spin, little slower

Isotope 2: lighter, faster, little less stable.

Yep. That’s exactly it .
Personally I like the palpitation more
