While the new 2013 SuperStar wants to fly fast, it is happy moving at slower paces. Too bad you’re ruling out YYF. There’s a lot of YYF’s on my “I do not want list”. However, I do have YYF’s on my “DO WANT” list. The “WANT” list is shorter because I mostly have all the YYF’s I want.
But, other than that, most of what I’m thinking about are speedier yoyos and more expensive.
Yeah the Chik would work. I’m thinking a Code 2 with disc side effects might be good, but we’re over-budget. Code 1 would be good too. Even the Cascade, but that plays totally different than the other One Drops.
CLYW is flat out not gonna happen unless used. Avalanche all the way.
Another option, since you like floaty-ish would be the RecRev OG Octave if they aren’t sold out(at another store though) Man, this yoyo will float, fly or speed like a bullet. Whatever you want, it does. Well except finger spins due to the nub in the center. Grinds like mad and far outplays its $70 price tag.
