Yoyo's that make you feel like you're "cheating"?


#1

So do you have any yoyos that make your tricks too easy or spins too long? I have a few that gave me that feeling. The Genesis, Code 1, and pretty much every Yoyorecreation gave me this feeling.


#2

A cool player to ask about this would be Paul Dang. He swaers by light yoyos, it sure does give them more heart and soul than yyr! ;D


#3

Remember it the yoyoer not the yoyo. Basically you could do all the trick on a classic and still do the same tricks on a (insert mid-high priced metal or delrin yoyo). But your right about something.


#4

Well, yah, but he means like that spins “too long” and make it easy to do tricks.

And, your answer is probably going to be under “fav. Yoyo”


#5

Fragment is pretty light.


#6

Chief. I can do up to 6 second grinds.


#7

Until a yoyo enables me to do an effortless Follow (as opposed to stacking my practice, as I’ve been doing) then there’s no yoyo to make me feel like I’m cheating. :wink:

Certainly stability combined with long spin time can make your life easier. Code 2 and SPYY Pro are good ones for me in this regard.


#8

Yoyorecreation throws make me feel like I’m cheating when I’m doing horizontal. The one decent horizontal combo I have can be done almost effortlessly with enough power to do the same combo may once or twice more and still bind. That’s cheese!!


#9

Bandai Hyper Infinity. That thing spins forever.


#10

I used monkey buff on the one i had and could do do 8 second finger grinds and 12 second thumb grinds afterwards… INSANITY


#11

Actually… there is a point where the yoyo does affect the yoyoer. Most people don’t agree with this, but I’ll tell you why. When there’s enough of a large gap between the quality of 2 yoyos, then this will affect the yoyoer. For example, I don’t think Yuuki Spencer could win worlds if he used just a Duncan Butterfly. Of course, this is overthinking the phrase a bit :wink:


#12

My zeekio core grinds longer.


#13

With the sole exception of Walter, every single metal yo-yo released after 2007 is too easy to use.

#15

We are talking BALL BEARING MODERN YOYOS

Yuuki could win probably using any BALL BEARING yoyo.

I use C3H5’s to compete and every time I feel guilty but gosh they are just so darn good!

=^-^=


#17

The Sleipnir was too good. I had to get rid of it.


#18

but the Duncan butterfly isn’t a " BALL BEARING MODERN YOYO"
It doesn’t have a bearing right?

do u evn general yo bro i get 10 second grind spin teims wit dem

No, but seriously. I get crazy grind times with General Yo’s blasts.

I’d love to see a comparison between the Evil Yo, and the General Yo of your choice. Epic grind battle.

Actually, we should do a video battle where every trick has to have a grind in it. Or both ideas.
