I recently got a Basceamp Navigator when they were on sale and it’s been a blast to play it! Super smooth and stable but I feel like it doesn’t get much love or attention :<
Yoyofficer for sure. The Rave and Shift are both excellent.
C3 seems to inexplicably fly under the radar. The OG Radius is fantastic (eagerly awaiting the Radius Nexus drop). I have most of the Draupnir shaped throws, including the Draupnir, and the Atomic Crash is by far the best, imo.
The ILYY Nile is one of the finest/least appreciated yoyos I know.
Mythril Gravitas, Throw Revolution Zephyr 2, & SoSerious Hermes are a few that come to mind. The problem with so many amazing new yo-yo releases is some are bound to get looked over.
I feel like Duncan has become underrated recently.
I like my YYF Paolista. It didn’t get much attention I think.
It’s wedge like in shape, but smaller. It feels very solid as well.
Yeah, I have to say that the VTWO has really impressed me. It has become one of my favorites, and yet I don’t hear many people talk about it. But that could just be because so many good yoyos are released nowadays, it is hard for any one yoyo, even a really good one, to grab the spotlight.
I’m kind of salty that there doesn’t seem to be better/more pictures of those hand engraved VTWOs out there.
Something by Yoyoaddict is underrated to me as well.
Should be more posting in a couple days once they’re all out in the wild.
Yeah the Navigator is legit one of the smoothest bimetals I own. For some reason all the Basecamp stuff just kinda went under the radar, maybe becase it was a collaboration, it was viewed as “neither YYF nor CLYW” and some kind of indeterminate, in-between?
My favorite Basecamp is definitely the Sherpa though.
Possibly, there’s a whole topic for that!
On the VTWO specifically, I just don’t find mostly standard V-shaped yoyos all that exciting. This is why the SF Bliss, which people rave about, to me is just… I dunno… another V, albeit a very good one?
I have to throw the Aviator 2 in as well. It’s a fantastic yoyo, especially for the price.
YYR/Rebellion Invaders Must Die. A top of the line yo-yo masquerading as a “budget” throw.
I have a red, blue, and green Sage and they are awesome. Lighter than my Replay and feel and throw buttery smooth. I think because it’s plastic and budget-priced it gets little praise but for me and in this stage of my yoyo adventure it’s great.
I just want to add that the Yoyofactory AL Dream is also a very under-hyped yoyo that deserves some attention.
It’s really a very effortless yoyo to use.
It may not look like much, but it’s an excellent yoyo.
I don’t hear much about the redesigned Duncan Metal Drifter from anyone. For $25 it is one of my favorite budget yo-yos right now. 58g, organic, and just really fun.
Duncan itself is pretty much underrated.
Good call, even though I don’t usually love Os
I don’t usually love Os either… I’m surprised we’re still allowed in here.
Lol yeah I want to like them but it doesn’t always work out. I’ve got about 3 or 4 I’ve kept over time
