    Ok guys... lets hear it. Give your list of the top 10 yo-yo's ever thrown. Its all up for debate. Feel free to criticize "respectfully". No rule's, no need to own them, no need to ever of even thrown them... just what you believe is believed to be the Top 10 yo-yo's of all time. "this should be interesting"

    Don't forget that the key part of the subject is "of all time". I can't wait to see how many replies are filled with FOTMs from the last six months.

    Flores
    Duncan 77
    Cheerio 99
    Cheerio Glitterspin
    Royal TV
    ProYo 1
    Tom Kuhn No Jive
    Tom Kuhn Silver Bullet
    Tom Kuhn SB2
    Duncan Freehand

    There's 10 and I barely scratched the surface.

    Let the games begin!

    ya know I've got an SB2 and honestly I don't think its really very good... sense I brought it home it has never been very smooth on string tricks, it looses rpm very quickly, I've tried every adjustment in the book and it just sucked... I was easily outplaying it with a reactor or even with da bomb or a cherry bomb. did I just get a crapy batch or something?

    Flavor of the Month. All time is a broad topic and neither I nor alot of others here are really qualified to do it any justice.

    Technically, you shouldn't since it is too new. For a poll like this, the yo-yos should have had a chance to stand the test of time. This week's "latest and greatest"(read: FOTM) should not count since they are usually forgotten as soon as next week's "latest and greatest" hit the market.

    When I made my list, I tried to include yo-yos that had some significance to the history and evolution to our little sport/hobby. After all, yo-yoing as we know it has been around for close to 80 years, not just the last six months.

    Your opinion on the top ten yo-yos is just as valid as anyones. Don't worry about what Bob thinks. If your favorite yo-yos all came out within the last year then those are your top ten no matter what anyone else thinks.

    We want to know what you think, not what someone else thinks you should think.


    If you succeed in destroying someone's deeply entrenched beliefs using facts and logic, that person won't change his mind but will hate your guts forever.

    Yomega Brain ... I think there was a phase a few years back where virtually everyone @ school had one until it was outlawed.

    Bape
    Freehand
    Pyro

    ... can't think of any more...
