Well, the mob is going to tell you to go with a Velocity. And it’s good advice.
The Velo is a phenomenal starter yo. It will take you from the very basics right up to the Expert stuff on just one yo. You can’t go wrong with this one.
On the other hand…
There’s always stuff like the Kickside, Lyn Fury, or Dark Magic. These are all great yos as well, and you might like the body style they all have a little better than the Velocity. Of course, you’re going to have to learn to bind to get them back to your hand once they’ve “broken in” properly, but this is one of the first skills you should be working on right along with a strong sleeper.
It’s your call to make, and you’ll enjoy any of them.
Protip: Some people will steer a beginner away from the Dark Magic. I won’t. I think if you’re dedicated enough to sit down for an afternoon and get a fairly good and straight sleeper, and then get your bind down pat, you’ll have no regrets at all about buying a DM. Plus, you’ll not be looking for an upgrade anytime soon. I say the same thing about the Lyn Fury, though, so take this with a grain of salt. ;D
