What are you throwing today?

I did not think strings made a difference when I started. Most of us are as finicky about what string (brand, thickness, etc.) as we are with yoyo shapes / specs.

Airetic.

Lifespan of Airetics is up there. IMO Bad Wolfe Co. Sliccs age even better and last longer after a bit more of a break-in period.

I may have to give em a try. Which of the Bad Wolf types is closest the Airetic Standards? Slims are not my favorite. I likes em thiccc.

Goldilocks (reg) are fairly close to Air regs (perhaps between Air regs and slims). His dummy thiccs are super fat. Might be worth picking up some of those to stretch out. I am messing with that now.

Today I’m playing what appears to be a misunderstood throw according to this What is the worst yoyo you own? thread. This one is a bit confusing hense the name Confusion GT. This is one I copped at first drop and has been an EDC for a couple of years now. If you like pocket ability, snappy regens and tight binds these are a lot of fun. If you are a “I have a strong throw guy”, every trick you do requires multiple string layer wraps and your belt loop Yo-Yo holster is your daily dangling flare, you might not get it, and that’s OK. We can still all have a Trick Circle together. @yyfben2 thanks for keeping things fun.

Do you play it unresponsive? I’ve always kept mine responsive.

I play it unresponsive with a KK small bearing, the supplied white slim pads and regular or slim strings. The orange thick pads take along time to break in and are really responsive, they play better on the 1st Confusion IMO.

The funnest thing the Confusion GT can do is bind with the smallest of tails.

Interesting. I didn’t realize KK bearings came in size A, and of course now that I know they do, I see that they are sold out. :disappointed:

The Center Trac small A bearing is also a good bearing option, I have one in my Independent V2. But were sold out a couple years back, looks like they are back in stock

Topyo Colossus V which I do not hesitate to say jives with me even better than my One Drop Top Deck. With a Kitty XL string this thing rose to the top of my Top 3.

Me and my nautilus we have a very very long and deep relation ship. I am really curious how GZR version compares.

It’s just like you would expect. A Code 2 on steroids. Take one of the most stable and long spinning YoYos ever made then make it just a bit more extremely stable and long spinning. That is the Code 2 GZR. I tried putting in the heaviest side effects I have (disks), and domes, and spikes to see what that was like, but found ultra lights felt the best and gave it the best overall performance. The OG Code 2 still feels best with the flat caps though imo. If you love the OG I’d recommend grabbing the GZR.

I like the edge ultimatum a lot too. Feels hollow but stable, really interesting. And the AK colorway is so dope.
