This is my first review, criticism and feedback appreciated!
The yoyo being reviewed:
Diameter: 55.94 mm / 2.20 inches
Width: 43.15 mm / 1.69 inches
Gap Width: 4.43 mm / .17 inches
Response System: CBC Slim Pad Size 19mm OD
Weight: 69.5 grams
Bearing Size: Center Trac Bearing by CBC
Shape: This yoyo has a shape compareable to a code 2, rockstar, protostar, and starlite. It is sightly more angled than the code 2. It has an ever so slightly smaller diameter than a FH0, and has a wide, v shape.
First impressions:When i first recieved this yoyo as a chistmas present from my friend darkadlermagic3, i was happy to see my old friend the northstar back in my possesion again (take note, im much better a player now than i was when i had my original northstar). It was beautiful in my opinion. The design and slickness on the side of the yoyo and the translucent blue really got to me!
Unboxing : I opened this at school. It come with the yoyofactory instuction booklet, the champions collection box and string. The side caps seem to use a much slicker plastic than the original northstar.
Performance: This is crazy. It was like my reaction when i got my first northstar. I’m very honest when i say this, but this plays as well as my code 2 and other similarly shaped metals! The wide catch zone really makes it easy to land more technical tricks (of the few i know)
Speed: This yoyo tends to play at a slower speed, but can go fast when you try.
Horizontal: This yoyo is great for it. I’m absolutely horrendous at horizontal, but this makes it feels comfortable!
Stability: Very stable! Much more stable than most other plastics at its price! It doesnt tilt much after pulling off long combos.
I tried various stability tests on it, such as trying to force it to tilt on a trapeze. It Feels rim weighted and takes a while to tilt using the trapeze test. (Thanks FiveIronBrian for giving advice and Brenden Mcginnis for teaching me the trapese test!)
Spin time: Very often people will ask about the sleep time on yoyos. This sleeps for an easy 2 minutes, as long and longer than metals.
General Notes: This yoyo is great. Fully unresponsive, low walls, nice comfy shape. Feels great. Definetely a good yoyo for someone looking for a competition worthy yoyo at an inexpensive price point!
This is definitely a yoyo to pick up. But it’s more of a yoyo for the more intricate, technical styled person or a slacker. The only problem I have with it are the annoying spacers, and the vibe. If youre a vibe freak, you might have an issue with this. It not too vibey for a plastic, but it won’t become smooth no matter what you do to it. Also, its LOOOOOUUUUUDDD!!
Thank you for reading this, sorry its so terrible compared to other reviews. I hope to make more reviews on other yoyos! FEEDBACK WANTED!
