So the other day I opened up the toolbox I use to store my yoyos, to see if there were any throws in there that I hadn't used for a while. My old Duncan Bumblebee caught my eye. Unfortunately, one of the spacers was missing so I couldn't use it. However, a couple of days later I found the spacer, threw it in the yoyo, and started playing. Of course I thought to do the classic tricks like Rock the Baby, etc. It was better than I remembered. Than I thought, Why not try some string tricks?
I threw a trapeze totally expecting to fail at landing it, since the Bumblebee was a looping shape yoyo and TOTALLY not designed for what I had in mind. The results blew me away. I LANDED IT!!!
I tried more tricks, and figured out I could do tricks like cold fusion, rewind,etc. What suprised me even more was that after playing for a little while it became unresponsive enough for me to do tricks like wrist whip and plastic whip. My current best spin time on it is 1:20, which is A LOT more than I expected.
My conclusion is this. If you are a beginner, or just looking for a fun new yoyo that will challenge your string trick capabilities, get this yoyo. Or if you already have one, dig it out and see what you can do with it.
Please note that this is my first review and if you have any helpful hints about writing reviews I'd really appreciate hearing them.
