Aurora Borealis NorthStar
When I first started yoyoing I would use any yoyo I own outside. I wasn’t as careful back then. Dings, scrapes, scuffs happened constantly. I then decided that I wanted to be more careful with my yoyos. I shortened my string. I started watching the surfaces I played over. After a while, I noticed I was only throwing indoors. So I tried to sort through my collection to see which yoyos I wouldn’t mind throwing outside. At first I chose my favorite metal yoyo. Then it got dinged. Then I felt kinda sad. So I changed my strategy. I decided to use plastics. This works for me. I had a couple protostars, a classic, and a D5 if I wanted to go delrin. I would use a different one each day. They only drag was that I preferred the color ways of my metals. Then I was given the Aurora Borealis NorthStar. It is the best looking plastic I’ve ever seen. Plus the performance is great. It’s completely smooth and has some decent heft to it.
Which yoyo do you use outside? Why?
