I’ve got into this hobby about ½ a year ago, and it’s great fun.
One thing I don’t really get, is why people buy several yoyo’s? Sure, if you play the various styles (1a, 2a and so on) - you need different yoyos, - but why do people like getting several yoyos for the same style of play?
Ok, I can figure out some of the reasons. I started with a Velocity, and then moved up to Dark magic. My own reason for that was simply that the Velocity was cheap, and I got it so I could see if this hobby was something for me. It was, so I needed a better yoyo - and decided on Dark Magic.
But when I see people posting that they just ordered 3 different 1A yoyos, I don’t understand why they need 3 more 1A’s
…So, since I haven’t tried any other yoyos than just velocity and DM - I have to ask if newer yoyos are really that different? Do they play so much better than lets say DM, that that they are worth getting?
I think the reason I am writing this post is, that I kinda feel like buying a new yoyo, but when I ask myself “why” - I don’t have an answer, and therefore I can’t get myself to spend the money
So I need a reason that will justify me buying another yoyo. And yes, I am curious if yoyos really feel that different. Sure, there is a pretty big difference Velocity compared to DM - but will there be much difference in DM compared to - lets say, 888?
And… while we are at it - what yoyo would you recommend if I would like to try something else than DM?
