What YoYo Should I get?


#1

well i would like a yoyo for string tricks and i dont know which to get, I’d prefer one with very long sleepers i’am willing to spend $20-$25 dollars(I’am just starting to learn string tricks)

Also got 100% poly string for my speed beetle is that a good idea??

And also right now i am able to do most looping tricks and begginer ones besides the last 2 looping ones and ufo and walk the dog is speed beetle good idea for now still?


#2

For string tricks, I suggest a Velocity, Lyn Fury, or a Kickside. Speed beetles aren’t really made for string tricks, although they can be used for looping. 100% polyester string is a good choice, but make sure that you have plenty because you’ll need to change your string often.


#3

ok, thanks,
yeh i know speed beetle not for string.
I kinda also figured out to get many string in the past 3 days i’ve broken my string twice.


#4

I agree with Kim-Lan, a Kickside is a great yoyo. The best thing about it is that it’s an adjustable gap. This allows you to make it unresponsive and do whips and Eli Hops.


#5

Kim-Lan is right. Those yo-yos are great for what you want.


#6

true
I have one and I love it I would also consider a legacy or gm for unresponsive play but I understand you might want a responsive yoyo


#7

I don’t think he’s ready for unresponsive play yet. The other yo-yos listed earlier can also have the ability to play unresponsively in the future, but will stay responsive until then, which is ideal for a person at this level.

And a Lyn Fury has dual o-ring, not hybrid, response.


#8

gm’s are 20 dollars w/o hubstacks


#9

I don’t understand your point.

Yes, they are, but those other yo-yos will suit him (assuming the original poster is a he) much better right now.

Out of respect for YoYoExpert, Samad, I think you should link to the YoYoExpert store for the products that they do sell here.


#12

I’m pretty sure this is allowed. Nowhere in the rules are we forbid to post links to other products. We have been doing this for a while, and we havent been warned. If André forbids us now, I will be happy to stop, but for now, I’m pretty sure its okay.


#13

I assume she just said that for courtesy. And go with a velocity- you can use it as resoponsive or unresponsive- so from begginer to expert!


#14

Yes, courtesy is what I meant, but if you must, go ahead. They’re the same price at both stores except the shipping prices differ.


#15

ok thanks guys for the great help.
I am probably gonna order the kickside soon… and I already have 100% poly string.


#16

yay just ordered it!!! ;D

What about the legacy? It’s 22.50 dollars and it is great for string tricks also the weight on the yoyo (68 grams) will allow great unresponsive play as well as the silicone response system. But it is adjustable so you can adjust to your skill level.

Cheers!

How does one adjust the response system on a yoyo?
And is unresponsive play a good choice for beginners?


#20

You cannot adjust the response on the Legacy. And yes, it is.
