Yeah, @FrankieJR kinda echoes my thoughts as well. Whenever I think about what yoyos I’d want to have on hand for introducing yoyoing to beginners, I am also trying to think ahead a bit.
Most who try it will never go past throwing a sleeper or a forward pass, and for them there’s no reason to have anything but a Butterfly XT or a Spinstar on hand. But for those few who master those early basics quickly, it may be worthwhile to have something more robust to give them, like a First Base or a Sage. But how long does it take these quick learners to reach that point, on average?
Does it make sense to have a suite of yoyos, from XT to Shutter, in a yoyo case ready for whenever someone is ready to “take the next step”? Or does it only make sense to have a bunch of XTs or Spinstars on hand and then tell them what yoyo to get next (on their own) when they’re ready?
