I’m thinking of getting one of these yoyos, but I can’t decide which too get. I know it is all preference and no yoyo is better than the other, but I want to know which one you like better and why?
Marmot cause it is really smooth and i like more round yoyos, its all about preferance
as one that has played with both of them and own a Marmot, I have to say I like both.
I like holding the P2 more and grinds with both are awsome!
play is different the P2 is more like my BVM which I love for some tricks but my Marmot is perfect for my fast tricks/my chopstick stuff.
the Marmot is more expinsive and unless you may be getting one in a trade then the next Marmot is going to be a limeted run that costs $150.
The P2 is a lot cheaper and plays just as good.
so if you like small and fast I say Marmot.
If you like medium sized go with P2.
I say go for P2, just as good and cheaper too.
This is a tough descision… I wouldn’t know which to choose. Both very good choices.
- What size do you prefer? (Big, small, medium, etc)
- What shape do you prefer? (Be specific: Round Butterfly, Flat Rims, pointy shape, H-Shape)
- What response do you prefer? (Silicone, O-Ring, Hybrid, Pad, etc)
- Do you like to mod/maintain it?
- What weight is ideal to you?
- Does color matter?
- How does your style relate to the yoyo? (What kind of tricks do you like to do? Fast? Technical? Smooth? Slacks?)
- What is your price range?
- What is your skill level?
Personally, I liked the P2 much better. So much so I might have to take use Brad’s more at BLC.
Brad, I kid of course.
You’re welcome. And welcome to play with it more next time I see you (and the MarkMont, which I’ll bring next time - when I have a case instead of just a bunch of pockets). You’ll just have to teach me a trick as rental payment.
Project 2: 67.6 g, width: 40.63 mm, diameter: 50 mm, gap: 4.37 mm
Wooly Marmot: 65.20 g, width: 40.59 mm, diameter: 50.16 mm, gap: 4.23 mm
Spec-wise, not a big difference, P2 is 2g heavier. They both play great, but feel different due to the differences in design. Really comes down to preference - Logan bought the P2 and didn’t really like it, sold it to me to buy a Marmot which he likes a lot. I bought the P2 from him, and I really like it - I like the flat rims (great for snap starts), some don’t like them I guess. P2 feels smaller in the hand to me (more aggressive countour - holding them both right now), and heavier (which it is slightly).
I LOVE THE WOOLY MARMOT!!!
Actually the WM is .16mm bigger then the P2 and the P2 is not medium sized.
I like the Marmot better. It plays much lighter and feels more comfortable in the hand and on the string.
Practicing on those backflips and other flips for worlds?
