This might sound even weirder, but I think it be even cooler if they came with rubber weight rings like some yoyos used to have. Lighter and more even weight distribution for responsive tricks like STM, stalls and regens, heavier with more rim weight for unresponsive and longer combo responsive play.

I found some rubber O-rings that fit my Speed Dial, and I enjoy messing around with that.

Yes, I saw the pics of your collection. Impressive.

The sad part is I sold a little over 50 yoyos a few months after college when I had to do an unpaid internship then moved states and was unemployed for 6 months.

 :C

As for everyone else - ty for the replies! Ill keep looking around. The basecamp is only $55 so Ill probably snag one of those soon.

CoreCo is also in the process of developing something in this vein, and it should be pretty rad.

Honestly I tend to play wood or unresponsive without blending into the responsive metal zone too much. I've yet to find one that truly and totally nails it. Walter is great fun, and honestly, so is a well-tuned SB2. I think we got pretty close to the mark with the SPYY Flying V, too, but my bias is showing. And I'm not sure anybody's really captured the feeling of a new Freehand or Renegade (though admittedly, that feeling doesn't last for long).

Nice to see you back around, Paul. I remember you from Dave's board!

Throwback!!!
