I just play for kicks with no illusions of getting great at it... and that disclaimer out of the way, the Catchy Street is really fun! It's grippy which is seemingly a no-no for purists (though don't some pro models have grippy tamas?) and the base cup is oversized making for easy catches and lighthouses. They drill into the base cup a bit to remove some weight to maintain pretty good balance.

So yeah... it's not for the purists. But it's FUN and it's not very expensive. Smiley

That's a good point GregP! It's not a lot of cash, and it seems like the catchy would be fun! I have no illusions of gaining pro status; although,  I've always been a bit of a purist... But, all told, I mostly play my yoyos that are the most fun, so I'd probably play my kendama that's the most fun too... food for thought.
