I just got the veritas and I think it plays pretty well. It has a little bit of inherent vibe, but good stability and decent spin times. And with my mediocre horizontal skills, the veritas seems to handle well in that department too.
I assume the horizion will fingerspin better because the cup is bigger and easier to land but I doubt it is more comfortable in the hand than the veritas.
This might be an overused description for a yoyo but this is a good all around player. Not excellent at anything but good in all departments. Seems to pull ahead of similar priced yoyos in the horizontal department though.
I played the veritas for only a day now so keep that in mind
