Which yoyo should i get for my first metal?

Hi guys i am looking for a good first metal yoyo and my top 5 are

Hectic, DV888 (if i can get one of these), M1, L3 or Metal zero

  1. What size do you prefer? (Big, small, medium, etc)

  2. What shape do you prefer? (Be specific: Round Butterfly, Flat Rims, pointy shape, H-Shape)

  3. What response do you prefer? (Silicone, O-Ring, Hybrid, Pad, etc)

  4. Do you like to mod/maintain it?

  5. Does color matter?

  6. How does your style relate to the yoyo? (What kind of tricks do you like to do?)

  7. What is your price range?

  8. What is your skill level?

  9. any size works just not to big

  10. round butterlfy or h shape

  11. Pad, o-ring works


  13. Not at all

  14. 1a or 5a

  15. 0.00-70.00

  16. Expert

If this does not fit any of my prefrences then recommend another!!


M1, judging from your specifications.

I love my M1, but I’d have to say a Hectic.

It can fall into the H-Shape category, it can have a small bearing (which is great for 5A), and has everything else you’re looking for.

Side Note: I’ve never seen or thrown an L3, so I really have no idea if that is good for you or not.

yeah thats what i might get but i do like the dv888

maybe a hectic from what you said

I was thinking M1 as I was reading your answers. L3 is about the same size, but it is somewhat pointy.
Also, thank you for answering those questions so we wouldn’t have to ask.

I would recommend the M1 because its very smooth, it’s not large (in fact its undersized), it had pad response as a option, and it falls in between your price range. I dont know if you care about this but the 10 ball bearing is the most quietest (spelling?) bearing you will most likely ever use, it takes a while to break in but its DEFINANTLY worth it. Sadly, it’s sold out at onedropyoyos.com but you could probably buy one from the b/s/t section and the shape is rounded but the rims are flat. If you don’t mind then get the M1!
