When it comes to yo-yos, speed seems to be the name of the game. Serious players seem to be looking for faster throws that move through the tricks at a blinding pace. I would hazard to say that this growing trend is the by product of the competitions and the need that some players have to move as fast as you can while having as many string hits as possible. I find this need for speed to be a little troubling at times but I am one of those who find beauty in the flow of the tricks and the fluid movements of yo-yo and player. While I am not a fan of the speedy play styles of the more competition minded players I do find that I love the yo-yos that are coming out to accommodate them. The quick yo-yos of today are lighter on the string and at the same time they react quite a bit quicker to changes in direction than some of the heavier yo-yos on the market. Also, the reduction in weight means that I can play for extended periods of time without feeling fatigued. There is a reason why one of my favorite metals clocks in at only 49 grams. Today I am looking at SPYY’s entry into the field of quickness, their aptly named Speed Freak. SPYY is no stranger to the world of competition throws, having come out with one of the better competition grade yo-yos of 2010 the Pro. Today we get to see if this quick full sized yo-yo is more of a Bugatti on the string or if it is an Edsel.

I had a chance to throw one of these at Nats and liked it quite a bit. I didn't even notice the concave shape of the gap around the response - what attention to detail from Mr. Buffel! Very nice review!At least 15% of what I say is true.
