I kinda ignore this for a while.
Now that I came to possess a messiah, it really help.

Anyway, the bootleg are really tempting, especially the stargazer that has a really low price (yes I already know where to buy them).

But I think, if anyone want a low wall high rim weight design in a yoyo, people just need to buy a Genesis. Bootleg are irresistible sometimes, but buying them won't even make you proud of owning one.

Great guide!

But I say if you can save nearly $100 on the same yoyo, just with a small difference I think it's worth it.. thats just me though

In the end I think a $100 saved is more important than a few extra grams..

Still, I won't encourage one to buy a bootleg.

Anyway, those 100$ you say you'd save, is better be out there helping yoyo community, rather than spending 80$ and support bootleg.

Its just me maybe, but just ignoring others hard work just so you can save few extra bucks is not right IMO.

Actually, we're not technically ignoring their hard work; the people making the bootlegs are..

Yeah, right. You are just an innocent bystander. You ARE technically and morally rewarding those that steal the hard-work of others. That makes you just as guilty as the bootleggers. That you feel innocent is exactly the morality that bootleggers rely on to continue their thievery.
