YoYoFactory…YoYoFactory, such a great company.
They brang it with a bang releasing the 888, but the Skyline was its brother, and was it good!
A bit lighter, a slight H-Shape, awesomeness. The Skyline is an amazing yoyo, it is somewhat based off the 888, the only thing they changed was the slight H-Shape, and the wheight, and not much else.
The Hubstacks are a great addition also.
First thoughts (before the throw):
Honestly…I didn’t think of it much before the throw.
I was so exited to open it, I didn’t look at it much.
One thing I did notice however, is how it didn’t fit too well in the box, it was loose in its box, so I was like, “This thing must be pretty small”. I was glad though, I loved my M1, and that was very undersized.
It also seemd fairly light when I was putting on a string, so that was actually something I wasn’t too familiar with, light yoyos.
The first throw, was, well…amazing.
First thing I noticed was how smooth it was, super-mega-extra-double smooth! And it is very forgiving on a bad throw, so you don’t need to worry about that.
I also noticed how it was very light, and I wasn’t a huge fan at first.
The SPEC bearing was great also, I love how those are unresponsive right out of the box.
The Skyline is small, and fits very well in the hand, I love that part of it.
Fits very well, and the finish is comfortable to hold.
Very nice feel if you like small yoyos.
On A Throw:
Smooth, light, fast, great!
I got use to the feeling of the lighness of the Skyline the first few hours, and I like it now.
The smoothness is hard to explain, I guess a glow should do it; SMOOTH
Its also very fast, but is great for longer string tricks.
Eh…not too great.
The glossy annodation YoYoFactory uses is what I don’t like about this yoyo, it doesn’t grind too well at all, but I can do some grinds.
It feels smooth-ish on your arm while grinding, but is kind of “Grippy”.
But know this is only on Gold Edition Skylines, some are beadblasted.
Awesome 5A player!
It’s light, and I like that for 5A.
Its hard to explain, its just awesome.
I used the word a lot in the review, and I will use it more:
Light, Small yoyo, if you like that, the Skyline is perfect for you.
