yyj classic


#1

Anyone tried it out? I was very pleasantly surprised when I got mine today. I’d say definitely the best beginner yoyo out there. And some of the best bang for your buck if you don’t include bootlegs.


#2

really?? did someone pay you to say that? lol


#3

Didn’t like it I take it?
It has a little vibe, but I don’t really care about vibe.


#4

I got a few heading my way in a few days.

Vibe and plastic yoyos. Nothing unusual. I haven’t had a yoyo vibe so much that it’s unplayable. Fun will negate vibe anytime!

2 are coming for me. 1 for keeping stock for noobs/responsive play, and 1 for modifications and playing. I look forward to receiving these.


#5

I can see them being modded in the future. At the very least, people are going to remove the caps and change it to a silicone response.


#6

I like caps, so I’ll leave those alone. But yeah, I’m gonna clean the bearing out and yank the rings and silicone it. I have a spare bearing included in the order, but it’s mostly so I have a spare Crucial Grooved on hand.


#7

I picked some up… it’s a fun throw, great colors… my kids really enjoy it…

It gets better with a little tweaking - put a full size bearing in it, took out the o-ring (never been a fan of o-ring response, it’s what kept me from liking the Lyn Fury out of box) and silli-ed it…

As far as price, it’s a fun responsive yoyo for under $10 - if you have to buy a bearing, you really might be better off grabbing an Asteroid… but if you do the tweaking, I think it plays better than the Asteroid (which, IMHO, is the #1 contender for under $20).

It would have really made a mark if it had come with both bearings (like the YYF One does - at the same price)… even better if they made it so the caps could have been inner-changeable - just for color swapping fun…


#8

I just got a chance to play one yesterday, and I think it is an awesome throw! I like it more than my protostars! These are definitely on my “Need To Buy” list.


#9

They’re great. I love mine. Very good for the price. I have a tenball in it.


#10

I have one and love it and I HATE plastic yoyos!!! It really came out well. I had a chance to throw an early proto of this and I liked it then. I will need another though. One for responsive and one for unresponsive!!! GREAT yoyo. They need to make them in purple/green though!!!


#11

I have two in the mail, both the blue/black combos. I ordered them Friday, the holiday got in the way. Can’t wait…probably get them tomorrow. I always thought YYF One was great, but too light. I think this one will be a lot better. I love YYJ.


#12

Just a tip for people with a Classic. We were messing with them at worlds and found that a crucial bearing makes it play much much better than any other.


#13

isn’t that true for every yoyo? :wink:


#14

Interesting. I picked a Crucial Grooved to go in this yoyo without having seen it or played it.


#15

I think so! :slight_smile:
