YoYo's that have Stood the Test of Time- Must Haves in Every Collection


(SR) #1

Just thinking about this a few minutes ago.

What yoyos, in your opinion, have stood the test of time and are throws that are a MUST HAVE in every good player/collectors arsenal?

If you’re a noob/haven’t been around long, please don’t answer lol.

Im thinking the Peak, Project, 888, etc.

Go.


#2

Severes.
First came the 09 severe.
Then the 2010.
Then the supernova. ( which if you dont know, was modeled after the severe, pretty much making it the severe 3)


(Bína) #3

CODE1 for me.


#4

the imperial


#5

The No-Jive.


(UmeNagisa) #6

Chiefs!


#7

and a FHZ


(Big Mike) #8

There’s a lot of history in the original Hitman.


(Jei Cheetah) #9

Original speeder.


#10

I think with the sheer sales and success of the DM2, while it may not hold high monetary value, I think the DM2 has got to be on that list. So many of us have gotten our start with that one.


#11

FHZ is a must.

The lyn fury and the dark magic (as well as some other YYJ plastics / bi materials) are still excellent players today.


#12

Duncan Butterfly.

My first throw.


#13

Same here


#14

High Five


#15

Peak. Still in very high demand after years of being gone.


#16

Agreed. :slight_smile:


(DOGS) #17

Hitman!

Must haves? I don’t know if I believe in must haves any longer. I used to but now as I look back on my own yoyo experience, I realize that my experience is very different from others while sharing some similarities. What was right for me could be very wrong for you. I guess for me it would be “must try” instead of “must have”.

  1. Wooden yo with a fixed wooden axle.
  2. A transaxle.
  3. A bearing yoyo.

Each of those has it’s own characteristics and makes the others’, unique characteristics, very apparent.

Really, that pretty much covers it for me.


#19

Original Hitman just because JD’s 2003 Worlds freestyle was mind-blowing.


#20

Dark Magic OG. Hitman OG. Speeder OG. so much history behind these three throws.
