Probably another thread like this burried somewhere, I am here to bring it back.
I used to hate my Benchmark W the most. Then the more I play it, the more I realize it is probably my best yoyo in my yoyo arsenal. I learned how to complete a full round of doing the hardest trick I’ve learned so far with it, the trick is Cold Fusion.
I used to hate it’s weight and thought it was a sloppy yoyo. I thought I made a mistake by not getting the Benchmark H. Then I realized it is probably the most stable yoyo I have after playing countless hours combined day in and day out. I thought I was forcing myself to play it because I thought I wouldn’t want to play it. Now I play it mainly because I love it.
I still keep the Flat Cap side effects on it, it plays perfect with it on. The only non-OEM thing that I put on it is a Konkave Ceramic bearing. Out of all the other yoyos I own, Shutter, Code 1, Gradient, DV888, nothing beats the Benchmark W - My favorite yoyo, it is great.
