I'm intermediate, and it took 4-5 bind attempts to get it to return when I first got it. Now my binding has improved like 285%, so it only takes me 1-2 bind attempts
I think it's great for intermediate level because the silicone is receeded so the string doesn't touch it. A lot of problems I had with tricks were me mashing the string against the o-rings and killing the spin. Some tricks became dead-simple when I got the Legacy. Love the shape and weight too. It's a great inexpensive yo-yo. Plays better than my Speeder and X-ConVict (but not my BvM).
