I bought this yoyo last week. I've played with it several hours and can't say it's in the same league as the shutter. Out of the box the bearing had some dirt in it so I had to clean it and lube it. Now it spins great but still has a slight "rattle" to it. It looks like a center track but may just use the same design.

The slick finish is the same as the P.lotor which I was also not a fan of. It is a horrible finish for finger spins compared to a standard sand-blasted finish. The "floaty" feel comes from the yoyo's lightweight which is a design choice but makes it feel cheap.

The biggest issue I have with mine, and this is pretty serious, is that the silver ring around the finger-spin area is sharp. I mean I feel like I could cut myself on it. When they made this piece it's almost like they pulled it right off the machine and put it in the yoyo without any smoothing work done. It feels like running my finger over the edge of a pop-tab. I don't know if every model is like this but it's either a quality control issue or a serious design flaw.

All that being said I do like this yoyo. It spins for a while once the bearing is cleaned. It plays fast and has good balance. I can do all the same tricks I can do with my shutter, horizon, and edge (finger spins not so much). I paid $24.00 for this on amazon and it's definitely worth that price. I can say with no doubt it's not as good as the N12, which is almost half the price. I would definatly get the N12 if you are considering either one.
