I have to agree, YYF know what they’re doing. just look at the Shutter… that thing took the yoyo world by storm.
7075 ‘Doomsday’ Genesis = One of my favourite throws of all time, and in my belief, one of the best performing. Just spins and spins and spins and has stability that would put a russian gymnast to shame. Not the fastest throw in the world, but then with such solid stability and spin, you wouldn’t expect it to be… plenty fast for me though.
7075 Supernova = Solid feeling but still nippy. Tends to be a tad slippy on binds I’ve found, even with new pads, but the performance is great. Deliberate… not as stable as the Genesis but plays faster. If I was to compete with a YYF throw, I’d use the 7075 Supernova.
Supernova Lite = Lighter, faster, floatier, fun-er. However it lacks the spin and stability of it’s heavier brethren… quite noticably so.
CZM84VK = Fantastic performance, but lacks much of a feel. Spins for ages and is very stable, but it feels somewhat robotic in it’s play. Not traditionally “solid” nor “floaty”, it kind of rides the wave between both. Binds can be a tad slippy due to the red competition pads, but these can be easily changed. Middle of the road in terms of speed as well, it’s fast, but not the fastest. Great performance though, the best grinding surface I’ve ever come across (even better than Gen-Yo’s), and once the price is taken in to account, it makes it one of the best value-for-money throws that I’ve ever bought.
Superstar (Pre-2013) = Good throw, I de-stacked mine to reduce the noise. Plays fast and somewhat light feeling. Mid wall rejects better than it’s 2013 counterpart. Stability and spin are adequate, though by no means comparable to the Genesis or CZM84VK. I prefer it’s feel in play to the new Superstar due to the nicer feel on the string, it’s one of the more enjoyable YYF’s to throw.
Superstar 2013 = A fantastic throw. Fast, long spinning and stable, however it falls prey to the same problem that the CZM8 has in that I feel that it lacks any real nice feeling to play. Somewhat robotic, although that in no way takes away from it’s performance. I can’t put my finger on it but something feels like it’s missing to me.
Yuuksta = A mini Genesis, maybe I’m not the best person to comment on undersized throws because I’m not their biggest fan, but I haven’t found the Yuuksta to be very stable. Doesn’t play that fast compared to some undersized models that I’ve tried either.
Skyline = I must admit, I really did not like the Skyline. I found it unstable and spin times to be rather poor. My least favourite YYF of all time.
MVP2 = A very strangely shaped yoyo. Whilst the shape is novel, and oddly comfortable, it just doesn’t hit the hand as nicely as something like a Supernova does. Lacks the stability of the more stable YYF models, and it’s not really as fast as I would like. Somewhat solid feeling.
Obviously this is all my opinion so it should be taken with a pinch of salt.
