yyf roll model?


#1

these have been sitting in the yoyoexpert shop for a while and i have been thinking about getting one given it’s light weight and it’s similar shape to the 888. does anybody have any experience with this throw?


#2

Probably like an 888. Unstable, small, narrow, and outdated for modern play. I would get a yoyojam or a yoyo with real historical value if you want an older yoyo, such as a project. I like older throws, but it is unlikely you will enjoy this yoyo unless you really like the 888.

Doesn’t play like the 888 at all really, the Roll Model a full size yo-yo with lower walls and better weight distribution. I’m not saying it will compete with all modern yo-yos, it is a little on the narrow side with mid-walls, but it has some good speed/stability and can easily handle modern tricks. It won’t be great for horizontal play, but at $35 it’s a solid yo-yo.
