Depending on your preferences, start with something plastic. Go from there. Get something that you think would be good. A Duncan FHZ isnt a bad idea because it comes with counterweights ergo it would be good for a person beginning counterweight play. From personal experience, the Yoyojam Lyn Fury and the Yoyofactory Velocity are quite good 5a throws.

i really like the ENEME for 5a


#4

a plastic yoyo if ur gonna use dice if not get a yoyo that can become responsive or unresponsive for practice binding with the cw in hand


#5

Uh… Use something you have and like for 1A. No need to go out and buy a new yoyo.


#6

The New Freehand would be good, it comes with a Counterweight. Otherwise any 1A you have laying around will work.


#7

just stick a counterweight on the yoyo you have right now. if you have to get a new one, i use my protostar most often for 5a.


#8

yes i agree any yoyo can be used for counterweight although if you mind your metals getting scratched go with a plastic that way its not too expensive.

Although it’s somewhat expensive for a plastic yo-yo, the protostar is my choice for 5A. Yes, you can get a dark magic for 5 dollars more, but the protostar comes with a center track bearing (YYF’s version of a KK)! The protostar is great. It has great spin time and is very stable. It’s plastic, so don’t worry about dinging it! A protostar is what I use for 5A, and I think it’s great. But this is just my opinion.

Totaly reccomend a FreehandZero!! Cheap, durable, 3 counterweights, and really fun… Just one silicone sticker and a good throw and it plays very unresponsive

I personally don’t mind using a Dienasty for a 5a throw but some people might argue with that.
