This might sound even weirder, but I think it be even cooler if they came with rubber weight rings like some yoyos used to have. Lighter and more even weight distribution for responsive tricks like STM, stalls and regens, heavier with more rim weight for unresponsive and longer combo responsive play.

I found some rubber O-rings that fit my Speed Dial, and I enjoy messing around with that.

Yes, I saw the pics of your collection. Impressive.

The sad part is I sold a little over 50 yoyos a few months after college when I had to do an unpaid internship then moved states and was unemployed for 6 months.

 :C

As for everyone else - ty for the replies! Ill keep looking around. The basecamp is only $55 so Ill probably snag one of those soon.

CoreCo is also in the process of developing something in this vein, and it should be pretty rad.

Honestly I tend to play wood or unresponsive without blending into the responsive metal zone too much. I've yet to find one that truly and totally nails it. Walter is great fun, and honestly, so is a well-tuned SB2. I think we got pretty close to the mark with the SPYY Flying V, too, but my bias is showing. And I'm not sure anybody's really captured the feeling of a new Freehand or Renegade (though admittedly, that feeling doesn't last for long).

Nice to see you back around, Paul. I remember you from Dave's board!

Throwback!!!

I tried some of the responsive basecamp throws at a store, I didn't find them consistent - would sometimes hang when I tugged.  They looked and felt nice, but didn't respond the way I wanted, so I didn't purchase.

The dv888 is nice and responsive.  Though I don't find it too comfortable.

For relaxing throwing I use a 2a yoyo or silver bullet.

Walter & Moonshine are about the best modern responsive yoyos.  The AntiYo YWET with silicone in both response grooves and a heavy lubed bearing is another of my favorites. There are 2 slim titanium pocket yoyos coming out that both are designed to be used with a slim bearing also, I'm going to grab one of them.

Walter though is really the one you want to look for, designed to be a modern responsive yoyo. It's hard to find these days though.

While not out yet, Spencer's next yoyo "Theodore" is in the works, there were a few serial numbers available to reserve still. https://spencerberry.com/theodore/ If you're looking for a modern responsive you may want to get a spot in the reservation.

Can you tell more about slim titanium?

I picked up a new yomega glide from their website, on sale for $34.99, comes with a narrow c bearing and is sold as a responsive yoyo. Extremely smooth and very nice.

We've got protos for our slimline responsive and I don't usually do hype posts but Uri and I are incredddiiibbblllyyyy happy with it. Ed's is in the mail and Nate Sutter is getting one too. You should have feedback from them soon! We went with small bearing because we feel like no half-spec C bearing options feel right. The wind and regen just feels wrong on them, to us, when compared to classic responsive yoyos. Drew Tetz, Ed Haponik and Nate Sutter all had input into the shape and design. We didn't want to make a yoyo that plays fine unresponsive and modify it to play just ok responsive, we wanted it to be AIMED at pure responsive play, with unresponsive setups being the after thought. This one winds great, can be smooth and tug responsive and has just enough modern yoyo design into it to make it spin real good.

7075 aluminum, huge axle, takes a beating, walls and dimensions specifically designed to assist in kickflips. Stoked on this yoyo!

Yes this was exactly what I've been talking about, in reference to bearing choice!

OK, I'm going to make sure I have funds ready for this yoyo. I am buying it!

20 years ago, we knew we had something special in modern yo-yoing, but were still figuring out what it was going to be. 15 years ago, we were establishing a direction and developing the technology to serve it. 10 years ago, there was an undercurrent of players starting to look back at the trick landscapes we'd overlooked, trying to connect with responsive play again, and find the best of both worlds. 5 years ago, there were players pushing a lo-fi, mid-school style, but most of the attempts at a "modern responsive" yo-yo had something missing.

This year...

Self plug here!  I'll actually be releasing a small run of these soon, it's intended to be a lighter, responsive yoyo that anybody can play with.  The bearing is recessed, so the gap is much more narrow at 3.5mm, and will use OD 10 ball bearings and General Yo pads.  Currently being machined!
