hitman: goods uses a o-ring
small
bads
its for begginers and i dont know if i sjould shave of selicone the o ring
still a small gap at the fullest gap

yyj black knight
goods unresponsive out of the box
good 4 1a and 5a

bads i dont like hybrid response and i fail at 5a and small gap

how i know this i go to a store that lets me try the yoyos btw i live in canada edmonton so i dont have many choose to get a yoyo and no i dont feel like ordering 1

How is the hitman a begginner yoyo its one of my favorites?
And it seems like you already know what you want your just looking for assurance.
I owned both and i liked the hitman better but thats just me.

Hitmqn any day

YES, I agree with all of the above.

JD spec’d the HM for his style, Is he a beginner?

My own observation is that the HM is far and above more popular than the BK. I own both and much prefer the HM. I went so far as to trade a guy my BK starburst half for his o-ring half, and the dual o-ring HM still is a better yoyo than an dual o-ring BK.

I don’t care much for hybrids, but I will admit that the hybrid HM is a good player as well, though I prefer the dual o-ring version.

just pick one they are both pretty good yoyos it is just prefrence i prefer the hitman over the black night. If you can wait get a hitman pro.

My Hitman is one of my all time favorites, and if your looking to lower the grab feeling from the yoyojam O rings I just put in a pair of YYF slim pads. They fit into the groove perfectly, but just be sure you got binding down, because it really sits down in the groove.


#7

Both are great depending on whether or not you feel like throwing a cheeseburger (referencing the Black Knight’s shape ;D). Seriously though, I really like them both, though I did prefer my Hitman more when I still had it. They’re just different throws for different moods.


#8

i say its for a beginer beacus it still comes up in all sizes of the gap i dont even think looking for 2h to see which is better… but honestly did you guys mod. the yoyo

1 more thing it was unresponsive at the biggest gap rghit out of the box but as soon i lubed it (2 small drop at 2 ball) its responsive and i dont have yyj thin so i use mineral oil/baby oil


#9

Mod it - NO, it needs no modding. Perfect as it comes.

Lube - makes yoyos responsive.
(And mineral oil is relatively thick)


#10

What lube do I use then


#11

Sewing machine oil. I got a huge bottle for $4. And I didn’t even need to ship it.
