I have a velocity I picked up at a local store. It is a neat yoyo that let’s me quickly change between responsive and unresponsive play. For unresponsive play, it is not great (compared to my metal yoyos) - but good enough for me to practice my fundamentals (various mounts and shorter tricks). Being plastic and cheap, i don’t mind carrying/traveling with it and am not upset if it gets scratched or dinged.
My question, has anyone used the YYF speed dial, which seems to do the same thing (going between responsive and unresponsive)? Does it perform (speed, stability) significantly better than the velocity - or does it seem to be pretty much the same?
