11 or 12 years ago I had a YYJ Matrixx. Really liked the way it played.
A couple of years later I sold all my throws. Fast forward to now - just getting back and building a collection…
In rebuilding my collection, I found a nice Matrixx on eBay, and it arrived today. I was really surprised to see that it was quite unresponsive. The one I had years ago was not - it was great, but it was not an unresponsive yoyo.
Curious to know if YYJ (and others?) may have just transitioned older models to be unresponsive as the trend went that way, or if it is more likely that the previous owner (the seller was an individual, not a company) modded it?
Are a lot of the higher end, responsive throws from the past keeping their names and being made into unresponsive versions, or are most unresponsive throws completely new models?
