Here's my other thoughts:
Yoyos are getting expensive. Why do you want to compromise? Get your favorite color. Spend the few dollars extra. I plan on getting a couple of other Phenoms soon. The new blue acid washed looks sweet and I'll pay the extra for it. I also want one in the regular blue.
Why settle? UNLESS it's not in the color you want, get it in the color you want. Case and point; The Adegle Asteroid and YYF Starbright Neon were NOT in the colors I wanted, however I selected colors I could live with. I gotta play the darn thing, I might as well like the color I got it in.
YYE can even help. I bought the Big Yo in red as a placeholder and they held my entire order as per my request until the Big Yo came in to them in blue.
Another instance, I bought a dv888 in grey which I would have lived with. I put in the notes "if aqua comes in, please hold order for Aqua". They didn't hold my order because it had come in, they just didn't get a chance to update their inventory yet.
Sorry. Adult buyer. Different perspective.
I'm debating getting a Dang in blue rather than in a color I don't want at a price that's much better from another vendor I like because, well, I don't want to compromise here.
This very well said. If your going to buy an item this expensive you might as well make sure you like it. Also when you buy from YYE you know it is a quality product and it is being shipped properly and quickly. Other sites I have bought from have been badly made or poorly shipped.
What's an extra 5$ to 10$ on a 120$ yoyo
