Well, I’ve recently aquired a 2010 G5, and so far, so good. It comes in the ever beautiful YYF
packaging, with the hubstacks and other mentionables up in a top compartment. After getting it out,
I looked at the hubstacks. The larger hubstacks obviously make for more controlled catches, along
with a fun, tilted type of balancing game. I wasn’t much for the random colors of the hubstacks
upon looking at them on the internet, and was planning to buy some white ones, but they grew on
me. I was just relieved it wasn’t a sticker (how I hate them). And with that, I threw it. The first
thing I noticed was that this thing is very smooth. However, the hubstacks were very loud and can
mislead you as to when to bring it back to hand. Another thing that I love about this is the profile.
Your throw finger fits very comfy into the middle, and the other two just rest upon the fine, smooth,
rounded corners making for a very good grip. The annodization is very smooth, and very beautiful, a
good reason to take the hubstacks off. With hubstacks removed, it looks very plain, yet attractive.
This thing owns grinds, I may say as well. I don’t profess myself as a very good grinder, nor a yoyoer
that even regularly performs them. However, this thing shreds thumb grinds, and any other basic
grind I could think of. The K-pad response is very reliable and doesn’t wear out fast whatsoever.
Stick with them over the CBC pads, the inferior version (IMO). One problem I have noted is that the
string sometimes slips into the little crack between yoyo and bearing, a very tedious and string
genociding problem. For this reason I recommend a centertrac or a Konkave.
