Oh, I didn’t say what the random bunch of strings on the top was! those are more bbb string theory. I hope you enjoy!
It’s been a good week! CLYW Manatee, OD Valor, and OD Deep State. Thanks to the guys who helped get these!
Quite a bit his week. These were all for Christmas. HotDiggidy 2nd run, Silenus, Kuntosh, Benchmark O 2016, anniversary Gradient and stand, and a pair of Loop 720s.
Got my new Akita in today and it meets all expectations. The hype is real, at least for me.
That gradient looks clean my dude
Been playing these a lot after getting them a couple of days ago. These are currently my two favourite yoyos.
@DocPop, your yoyos are absolutely fantastic! They have a beautiful and satisfyingly play feel.
How does the Akita play?
It is pretty sweet. Never had one of the original ones, so when I seen this I picked it up. It has a super matte finish and the etching looks super nice.
The Akita is super nice. It is probably going to be my favorite throw. It has some pretty decent competition too.
Size is very comparable to the Wide Angle. If feels fairly light on the string and floats beautifully through the air. It has good spin power with nice wide steel rings as well.
More importantly it feels very comfortable in the hand. Smooth curves and a wonderfully smooth finish. The colorway is very nice too.
Really liking the pink one on the left - what yoyo is that?
It’s a DocPop Icarus.
I think the Markmont Classic is a great organic yoyo. I think this one is even better.
Is the Akita super floaty, or just a little floaty? And does it have a little bit of a heavy feel while also feeling light?
I suppose it depend on what you compare it to. I am not good enough to give you a true assessment. Only how it feels to me.
Is that a plastic bearing? I didn’t know they made those.
Oh wow. I thought they only made metal bearings.
Well I guess that old saying IS true:
You learn something new everyday.
