Undersized yoyos!


#1

What is your favorite, mine is the Hspin gorylla 411 or the crucial half and half.


#2

Eneme, or pretty much any undersized one drop (project, markmont, wolly marmont, dietz, etc)

We’re assuming undersized is less than 52 mm right?


#3

Anything that feels small to you.

I can’t really say. I’ve got a Crucial Half & Half, and while I like it, it falls into the same category as other stuff. I’ve also got a MMN and a few other undersized. I’ve also got plenty in the 54mm target zone and a few in the oversized range.

If I had to choose between the MMN and the H&H, I’d say the MMN, the metal just feels more stable. But I’m seeing a preference for me with the oversized yoyos, preferably on the heavy side for now. My DM2 is my favorite, but the OD Code 1 is starting to creep in on that #1 position. After that, full sized is pretty good. In fact, I just got a 54 today with the aluminum spikes. I’m liking that a lot, but I also really like my BVM and Gnarwal too.

Right now I’ve got plenty of variety in yoyos. I try to just choose 1 a day and just stick with that, just to keep from getting stagnant.

I think when I get better, the full sized and undersized throws will be more attractive, but right now the oversized throws work best for me.

While I enjoy throwing a fullsize yoyos more, I do have a chaotic, and really love it for variation.
And among what I have tried, the Cut by Hspin is also awesome.

My favorite underdized is the gnarwhals. I’ve owned many high end ones, but gnarwhals are duperb…

i hope this thread isnt locked just because it has been done before. My favorite at this moment are the dietz and the gnarwhal. I love undersized H ish shaped throws. I don’t own a single oversized. I had the sasquatch and it was no fun. It was a lot easier but no fun. Actually I lied, I love my plastic oversized: starlite, protostar, northstar. hate the pgm. I just got the st.eel and it plays just as well as my mini star. I tried the mighty flea, not a fan… Popstar… not a fan… If you are going for a real “pocket” yoyo its all about the st.eel! i think any yoyo is really pocket worthy but if you had to ask me my absolute favorite it would be the gnarwhal. I just got some heavy spike side effects for my dietz coming in the mail so it may change…


#10

except the big yo. :wink:


#11

Totally. I got a Big Yo, and there’s no pocket I got big enough for that to ride in. Well, maybe if I get some custom Studio42 hoodies made up, it might fit in there…


#12

Yeah my crucial half and half is kinda different from metals…


(WildCat23) #13

Why custom? It SHOULD fit in the hood.

Note Size of hood varies.


#14

I have really enjoyed the Axiom as an undersized throw. It may be below many of you masters pay grade, but I have found it to be a worthy pocket pal.

Now I am going to go out on a limb and embarrass myself as well as further expose my novice status. I often read of the “pgm” referred to on these forums and I don’t know what that is. :-[


#15

It is a plastic grind machine by yoyofactory.


#16

Of course… thanks so much for the rudimentary info.
I’ll get up to speed one day, I’m trying real hard. ;D


#17

Why Custom? Because it would have my trademarked logo printed or silkscreened on it, that’s why it would be custom. And I don’t want it in the hood because, well, I might want to use it to put my head in! I’m not into sports, so I ain’t gonna buy some football or baseball or NBA one. I also don’t feel like indirectly promoting something else for my money.

(I’m into passive marketing. I got wristbands, pens, pins, buttons, lanyards, made up, with more items on the way. I have enough T-shirts and hats for my usage, and one custom CNC cut and polished belt buckle with the logo, as well as the logo on the back portion of the belt)
