Are there any particulars in the specs that would help me determine if a particular yo-yo will be more or less stable than another yo-yo?  For example, would a heavier yo-yo be more likely to be more stable than a lighter one or would a wider yo-yo be more stable than a narrower one? Any other things to look at or is there really no way to tell other then by reading the description of the yo-yo?  Smiley

Cheaters guide to science:

Look for beefy rims. More weight out wide, less in the middle.

There are some yoyos that are very wide, narrow, light, and/or heavy, all of which may be stable. Ask questions on here if you want to know what people think about them, look at the description, and, as Ben said, look for the beefy rims.

Especially if there is a stainless steel ring around those beefy rims Cheesy

Asking around is probably the best way to do it though.
Just be aware, people have slightly different ideas of how much stability is too much.

I owned a prescription and I personally would not call it very stable. The others I'm not too sure on (though I did own a manatee).

Yeah, I don't know much about the ones you mentioned, but the Too HOT, horizon, TopDeck, and QV are good throws that are on the stable side.

I think anything with 7075 should be more stable theoretically.

Width and rim weight are factors. But it's a double edged sword. A wide yoyo requires a good throw or it will wobble due to poor technique. The YYJ x-convict is a good example. On a good throw it is rock solid. A little off and it will wobble a bit.
