I disagree, a lot of people just can’t be bothered to get yoyos in the mini category and I get why, small yoyos just aren’t that fun to play with when you’re struggling so much with your tricks playing with them. You can tell when so many people in this thread are listing undersized yoyos that have diameters above 50mm in this mini category, which for me is definitely not mini. Mini yoyos should in the least have diameters under 50mm. Personally, I’ll define yoyos under 50mm in diameter as undersized and yoyos with diameters 40mm and under as mini. Micro would be for yoyos with diameters 30mm and under. If I were to go with my definition, the YYF Heist would be the best mini.
As a result, most people’s knowledge of mini yoyos comes down to just a few out of the tons of mini yoyos out there. It also seems that mini yoyos have been getting some love only recently and hence only the recently released mini yoyos get recognition, older minis aren’t well-known by a lot of people. For people like me who collect tons of mini yoyos, I have found that the General Yo Ministar 2 absolutely smashes everything else in the market, nothing comes close to playing as well as it, not even the Fallen Angel, and the design is an old one, first released in 2017. The Masamini 2 is just way too heavy for it to be fun to play, similar to it’s predecessor (performance-wise, nothing beats it, but it doesn’t feel great to play). General Yo needs to make much more Ministar 2s so people can experience its greatness. I think the resident mini yoyo expert @batracTheLooper would agree that the Ministar 2 is the best mini yoyo to have ever come out as well. The Ministar 2 is the standard that I judge all mini yoyos against.
