which is better?


#1

OK, which yoyo do you guys think is better? the Legacy, hitman (hybrid), xconVict, or dark magic? I have heard a lot of things, but i want to know which one to get next! So, just post your opinion! ;D


#2

it depends on what you like…


#3

It depends…

try being more specific:
Which is better for 1A (or 2a, 3a, 4a, or 5a)?
Which is better for speed players?
Which will i like if i already have the legacy?
Which is the best value?


#4

Answer those questions for us to decide.

sorry for being less specific :wink: I do already have a legacy, and i dont really want it for speed tricks. and definately for 1a! I am just concerned about the responce. is dual o ring too responsive in the hitman or xconvict? (I have a speeder and legacy, which are hybrid and silicon!


#6

I agree,answer the questions,but I prefer a dark magic.

Well it depends.

Each one plays a bit differently.

Legacy: Smooth yoyo, plastic but has a nice grinding surface, silicone so it has a very smooth but tight bind, a bit on the heavy side, Oversized, durable. Probably not the best if you like doing fast tricks. Perfect for smooth combos!

Hybrid Hitman: Also a nice yoyo,plastic with metal rims so grinding is nice, one side starburst one side oring so can be quite grippy at times, average weight,Average size, maybe a tad small, durable but rims can get dinged. Good for fast tricks!

Xconvict: Very smooth yoyo, Plastic with oversized metal rims, large metal rims allow very nice grinds, Double oring so you get smooth binds, average weight, undersized a bit, Durable but rims can get dinged, Good for smooth tricks, handles the string very well

Dark Magic: Plastic with metal rims, Hybrid response so can be a bit grippy at times, a bit on the heavy side, has thumb grind rings, metal rings allow some nice grinds, a bit on the heavy side, oversized, metal rims can get dinged but the yoyo is durable. Not good for faster tricks due to its heaviness. But a nice yoyo for long technical combos and grinds!

So it depends, what do you like?

If you like: A normal sized yoyo that has nice smooth returns amd you want good grinding? dont like heavy yoyos? The vict would be a good choice.

If you like: A yoyo that is normal sized and normal weight, grinds, can come up well maybe even with a tug, dont really do thumb grinds, the Hybrid Hitman would be good.

If you like: A larger yoyo that plays really smooth, can grind, binds very smooth, and are on a budget
the Legacy is a good option (plus it looks amazing!)

If you like: Larger yoyos that come back nice and quick on a bind, heavier side, can grind well and thumb grind. Thats a dark magic.

Out of all those yoyos, my fave is the Xconvict.
Its a very smooth yoyo, and fits my style well.
I set mine up with a cleaned bearing and a thin shim on each side.

Hopefully I helped with what you might want to get. Whatever yoyo you get, have fun with it! You will enjoy em!

Good luck!

OH sorry! i didnt see the link! I like a bigger size, I like rounded butterfly, I like the hybrid and silicon (havent tried o ring). If modding/maintain means add shims, then yeah. Color doesnt matter too much unless its yellow or pink! I like whips and tricks like skin the gerbil. my price range is 50$ and under. my skill level is advanced to expert (learning master).


#9

It seems to me that the Hybrid Hitman would be good for you. However, look at Josh’s lengthy post and try to decide again. :wink:


#10

that “lengthy post” (lol) helped! I think I will stick to the dual o ring like the hitman, but go with the X conVIct! I was thinking about doing that, i just wanted to get some input! but you guys definately helped!..so, which is better, yyf, or yyj?..oh! suprised you with that question didnt I? …lol


#11

um…I was thinking of the original hitman not the hybrid. I guess my mind was set on the o rings! And I have heard that the hitman can be too responsive!
