Perhaps this belongs in with reviews although this isn’t really a review, more of an inquiry. I have a NorthStar as well as a ProtoStar and have been very happy with their performance. (They’re not my very favorites, but I enjoy them a great deal!) It is not my intention to get on here and flame against any particular yoyo. Listen, I am an older fella then most of you kids on these forums so I have a difficult time saying anything bad about any contemporary throw. Yoyos are SO much better today then when I was a kid. BY FAR! Then we had the Duncan Imperial and Butterfly and thought they were it. So the the throws I have today are rocket rides to Mars compared to what I use to play with.
That said, I purchased a Counter Attack a couple of weeks ago and thus far I have to say I have been underwhelmed. I am sorry too, because I really want to like this yoyo. I don’t seem to be able to get any respectable spin times out of this thing, it seems to want to poop out very shortly into any trick. I didn’t expect the Counter Attack to play like my DV888 or even my Raptor and Momentum, but man, I can’t seem to get much out of it at all. I will admit I haven’t the strongest throw out there, but this bandalore has kinda been an all around disappointment so far. Is anyone else throwing one of these? If so, what has been your experience? Am I expecting too much from this yoyo, or is it really a pretty good product and I’m still just a lousy player? ???
