Reviews are not so useful but i’ll try to show you some OK pics and give my 2 cents on those:
note: this review is definitely biased thanks to Harols Owens III being my favorite player, but i’m showing you how many yoyos i own ^ so that you can somewhat appreciate the fact i have reference…
To start off, here are my 2 HOTs,
What i love the most about these is that they play extremely smooth due to their slightly over sized profile and just overall good design, thank Harold Owens for that.
the speed allowed is average and can be pushed a bit more without losing in stability, again: oversized, it doesn’t feel that big, it’s just slightly better in performance due to that profile.
The 2 colors i got are great, the first one is Gold, which looks like a bronze to me… and the second one is the Ain’t nothing limited edition, which…has got to be the most gorgeous throw i own, it’s sexy as heck, the destruction splash in gold (bronze) and matte dark over that shiny Yellow/gold mixes really nicely, definitely consider this color way if you’re planing on getting a HOT: it’s worth it just for the look alone.
summit, HOT, HOT, CC anglam
The Gold one is matte with a nice polish that allows for grinds Ok, nothing spectacular, the special edition is not textured, it looks like a raw finish, without being shiny… odd but grind just as well if not better than the textured Gold one XD
This throw became my personal favorite over all my other hi end because it’s plain fun and very easy to play with… definitely going to make me invent a lot more tricks !
I would like to end this short review (if you can call that a review) with the fact that regenes, horizontals and slow tricks work all nicely on it, if you like the hourglass shape, i see only one reason not to like this throw, and that’s the fact that the metal used is cheap… almost as cheap as magic Yoyo, that’s saying something, so avoid dings at all cost because it easily reaches through the ano and deep…
yoyo like turning point, although using the same kind of aluminium (6061) they are much higher quality metals which can take a beating no problem without doing more than a scratch… i could show u pics as a proof, but you’ll have to take my word for it.
Still, a fantastic throw, maybe a bit overpriced, but then again, all yoyos are, especially Turning point haha.
Expect Greatness anyway
note: see how the Leviathan 2 from Turning Point (right) has that similar hourglass shape as the HOT…but the HOT has it more pronounced and sexier, yes it’s HOT…mwahaha …coughcough* the leviathan2 feels small after playing a HOT…
