I sort of know the feeling. I wanted to get the Speeder 2 in white when it first came out, but this check came in too late for me to buy the Speeder 2 on the first batch that arrived.
I’m also waiting for a few models to come in stock but in the color I want as well.
Most of the time, items I need are more readily available and are more commodity type items. Yoyo isn’t demanding the same numbers as the items I typically need/want. Plus, with these high end yoyos, I bet they aren’t cranking them out by the cargo container and shipping them across the Pacific.
So, you have multiple choices.
1: Shop YYE. I gotta say I like it here and the customer service.
2: Shop somewhere else. Hey, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. For me, some places don’t carry what I have when I need it or doesn’t carry it, so I have to go somewhere else. I always give my favorite place first shot at it.
3: Shop via marketplace type environments. Buy/Sell/Trade, Ebay.
4: Retail stores seem to lack selection. Flea markets might have potential but probably not a great selection IF any. Specialty retailers is the way to go.
