This is my first review, please tell me what I need to change to make it better.
Intro: When I got this yoyo it came in the standard yoyojam box with a white string on it. I got the yellow/green one and I was immediately amazed by the color, it looked so good.
First Throw: Since it comes with the YYJ slim bearing only, it was very responsive. It was so responsive that it was hard to do string tricks. When I tried landing on trapeze it shot back to my hand.
First Throw(Large bearing): After playing responsive for a bit I decided to put one of my regular C sized bearings in there. On the throw it was pretty smooth, but a little snaggy due to the unbroken in response.
Looks/Comfort: Like I mentioned earlier the color on this yoyo is amazing especially in the light and catches your attention right away. It is full sized and fills your hand nicely the yoyo has no sharp edges and feels good in the hand and on the returns.
Binds: The binds on this yoyo are snappy once the response is broken in with little to no snags.
Overall Play: The plelude doesn’t feel like it needs to go fast even though it is super light at just under 57grams. It can play fast, slow, or in between. I would say that it is floaty and it handles hops pretty well considering the shape.The longest combo I could get out of it was about 35 seconds with barely enough spin to bind. Horizontals on the prelude are ok but harder because it is highwalled as compared to my echo which has a low wall and is great a horizontal. It is pretty smooth but has a slight vibe on the string but it is very small.
5a: The prelude is ok at 5a but I think if they made it heavier it would be better but they did that with the pinnacle.
Great color Snaggy at first
Smooth for plastic Light
Conclusion: The Prelude is a great yoyo and for only $14.40 it is a great purchase. While it is great there are some things I would like to change is make it heavier and have it ship with both bearings so that when you get the basics down you don’t have to buy a bearing for the more advanced tricks. That being said don’t hesitated to buy this yoyo along with a C sized bearing to switch it out.
