Your Top 5 Favorite Yoyos?

(Nathan) #21
  • G2 Elite
  • G2 Banshee
  • iYOYO iCEBERG (for 5A)
  • YoyoFactory Edge
  • YoyoFactory horizon


This is true of most of the fancy hybrids, I’d say all of the following are just as good as bimetal (minus the durability, and additional noise of plastic):

  • Ippon
  • Iceberg
  • Surveil
  • Diffusion

And the POM Draupnir you like to bring up (no love for the Triad, btw?), pretty much anything in this true hybrid category has a ton of performance, easily equal to bimetal.

Yoyorecreation Draupnir, yoyofriends Hummingbird, Mowl Surveillance, Unprld Flashback and yoyofriends Magpie. In that order for me. I am getting a TISS hummingbird in a couple of days so that might top the list :grin:.

  2. Marco
  3. Ko’olau Edge

What’s wrong with the shutter?


I feel like there is a fatigue for the shutter in the community. I recently made a post reply on how tired I am of hearing about how amazing One Drop is; so I get it.

So “yeah I said it” = me fighting a feeling of being a hypocrite for loving something so popular, and a mild fear that I may be judge as a noob for it by everyone here because my narcissism whispers in my ear “everyone cares about what you think”

Hope that explains it.


I have a small collection so I can only base it on that however my five favourite (in no order) are:

CLYW Kayak
CLYW Manatee
Onedrop Benchmark O 2016
2Sickyoyos Queen

I also really dig the old school CLYW Puffin I have along with my Onedrop Vanguard however I have only had those two for a few weeks so I don’t feel like I know them well enough at this stage


I love the Node!
