    How do the different yoyo sizes (diameter and width) effect play?

    Wider yoyos tend to be easier to land on the string, but harder to maneuver between strings.

    Larger diameter yoyos tend to have more rotational inertia, which can lead to longer spin times, but you have a similar problem to wider yoyos where the yoyo can be harder to maneuver through gaps. Tricks like chopsticks mounts (where you land the yoyo between your thumb and fingers on one hand) or technical tricks where you have tight string formations in particular can become more difficult. Sometimes it is easier to accidentally touch or graze the yoyo during tricks if the diameter is too wide.

    Comfort is also a big factor in what size people prefer. If you have small hands, you might prefer something a little on the smaller side, and the opposite if you have large hands. Or just whatever feels more comfortable in your hand once you get a chance to try more options. If you prefer long or short string, that can also make a difference, though it isn't that big a deal. Longer string can give you more room to maneuver a larger yoyo in technical tricks, whereas a smaller yoyo can make using shorter string more practical. If you are going to be carrying the yoyo around in your pocket a lot, a slimmer design can be more convenient.
