Yicheng Luo L5 or ET Elysian?


#1

I’m trying to decide between these two yoyos. The price doesn’t really matter to me, although that $30 savings would be nice.
Really, it comes down to playability and fingerspins.
I’ve used the Elysian but I’ve never used the L5, and I’m not sure which I want to buy.
Opinions?


#2

shape of the Elysian is very appealing to me. Ive played my friends’ L5, and it wasn’t anything unique to me. I cant fingerspin if Its not on my z-stacked G5, so I dont know what to tell you on that one.


#3

The Elysian is most likely better I’ve heard the bearing and pads are pretty crumby on the L5 where as the Elysian has a pretty nice bearing.

Also for finger spins you should keep your finger quite limp and not strong and straight: helps a lot


#4

I know how to do fingerspins. Sorry if it came off as if I didn’t xD
Mostly just looking to see which one is better for fingerspins.
The THEORY also seems to be a viable option, what with it winning the fingerspin contest by like 3 minutes.


#5

The theory is nice if you just want to do long fingerspins but not really practical for fingerspin tricks


#6

But the L5 has a wooden magnetic-snap box
Cool Box>Everything


#7

Im almost certain Elysian hops easier than L5 due to its smoothly curved cup.


#8

But the elysian comes in a short metal pringles tube


#9

I ended up picking up the elysian :slight_smile:
I know I like it since I used it before and my god is it amazing for fingerspins.


#10

Does it come with the Pringles?
Pringles>The yoyo


#11

I’ve got my own pringles here. I’ll just fill the can with them when I get the elysian, don’t worry.


#12

Ok good, don’t want that yoyo wasting any space for the Pringles.


#13

Yeah. I’m just gonna toss the yoyo, the pringles case is more important.
Hopefully itll last longer than the pringles case I got from that wrath thing…

As long as you look cool storing your Pringles, I don’t see a problem
