Yoyo Trends


I am amazed at how much yoyos changes in such short amounts of time. Like does anyone even throw undersized yoyos anymore?? :wink: Also modding fhz’s and whatnot. Where did the time go…


Although I prefer full sized yoyos i still love the feel of an undersized one. Something about the cute tinienes tinynes tianeynesssss. whatever, but my first yoyo was also an undersized one so maybe that has something to do with it


Personally I love undersized. Six of my ten throws are undersized and organic, they’re my favorite. But there is something to be said for full sized throws, they’re more geared for competitive play.

Undersized yoyo’s are fun every now and then but full sized are so much better for competing

Yeah I think performance vs. fun feel is the most popular in yo-yos nowadays.


Why yes…
YYF Hectic, YYF Frantic, YYF 888 (original), YYJ Mini Motu, YYJ HM, Anti-Yo eetsit, Dif-e-yo Bare Bones. Some of those may be on the high end size wise for undersized.


I miss when people like Vader used to mod fhz’s into unbelievable beast.:frowning:


anyone care to explain why they think ‘full’ sized yoyos are better or more geared for competition?

Longer spin, more stable, easier to hit strings, horizontal usually is nice.


In my personal expriances I am much faster with an undersized throw. But I can’t get nearly as techy with them as a nomalsize. So I would say that has a lot to do with it. And the obvious larger landing gap for increased accuracy. But hey, I’m no professional either. So I could be completely wrong.

Biggest trend I see, everybody seems to go just for best performance. I started 4 years ago and at that time, many people had both some good yo-yos for contest, but also many yo-yos focused more on fun play. You dont see that too often anymore.
