Neither play like a metal. Yes, the Surge is heavy but it doesn’t play heavy. Or: The pre-releases do play heavy, the production ones do not play heavy.
The OneStar I feel is too light, but other than that, I find no flaws with it.
The shapes are very different and therefore how they perform and play are different. I prefer heavier stuff, so the Surge is my choice. The OneStar can get moving super fast, but because it is so light, it can get unstable when pushed super fast. The Surge just won’t be pushed super fast as the shape won’t really allow it, as well as the weight.
As good as they both are, I don’t feel either play like a metal. They both do play very good though.
If you’re going to be looking at any reviews on the OneStar, look at Noonar’s. His has pictures, and actually uses correct spelling/grammar/punctuation. Personally, the OneStar is too light, I’d go for the Surge.
That’s not a review, that’s a first impression. Might as well not even write a review unless its close to as long, or as long as the ones one High Speed YoYo or YYS. You really don’t learn anything more from smaller reviews than you do from looking at the specs and some kids biased view of the yoyo.
I didn’t really like the Surge. It plays pretty well, but the gap is way too small and its a bit narrow for my liking. It also does play quite heavy and whilst I don’t mind this, I know other people have mentioned that it’s too heavy for them.
If a plastic is within your range and you have the money, I would highly recommend the Onedrop Rally. In my opinion it’s leaps and bounds better than both the throws you have mentioned and its not all that expensive.
