    - Adegle RhongTo Review |

    I am not a fan of exotic fruits. Mango is just about the foulest tastes that I have ever experienced. Papaya always smells like it is 30 seconds away from rotting. Kiwi disables my taste buds for a week. I am more of a orange, banana, and apple kind of guy. Tropical and exotic fruit never appealed to me, and those genetic hybrids like plumcots just freak me out. Abominations. All that aside, I have always been curious of starfruits.
    Starfruits, also known as Carambola, is a unique star shaped fruit that grows in temperate climates like Thailand, Australia, Florida and Hawaii. Its unique shape is where it gets its name. When I was contacted by Taiwanese yo-yo maker Adegle about reviewing a RhonTo, I knew that I would have to go against my dislike of exotic tropical fruits for the sake of the review, and eat a starfruit. After all, the shape is what inspired the unique spoke on the RhongTo, and RhongTo itself is the Hakka dialect pronunciation for the starfruit.

    Not too sure how I feel about the catch zone as I'm usually turned off by yoyo's with that shape, but that is one very impressive looking yoyo.

    And now I really want to try some star fruit.
    Always looking for this and that

    One yoyo that is on my try list! Hope to see it in the US soon!

    Stop worrying about what yoyo you should be playing, and just play yoyo. (pssst I am not Landon)
