So, this is a letter that I wrote to Ernie. It is a letter that I thought was pretty much a review. Since I had promised a review of this to a few people, I thought this would work. This is long, and I apologize for that. Making this a review was an after thought. I wanted to tell Ernie what I thought, and felt that he deserved more than the brevity I would have thought to consider for a review on here. However, to make things a little more exciting, I have included a few pictures for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy, and thanks for reading! Oh, and if you don't want to read what the lengthy letter, the conclusion is this. Go get one! Seriously, this thing is as smooth as can be and is such a joy to throw. As stated in the letter, I have been told by a friend of mine that has both this and the Peak, and says this thing is just as smooth, if not smoother than the Peak. He claims that he enjoys this one more. I would comment, but I don't have a Peak. The point remains. You are missing out if you don't try one of these out. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Wow, I think I would buy a torrent if it looked like that.

Nice review! I was thinking of getting a Torrent... But my problem was that it looked too simple. I have a thing for flair hehe. But a two toned, un-engraved version sounds AWESOME! Could you post some pictures of it?
Stop worrying about what yoyo you should be playing, and just play yoyo. (pssst I am not Landon)

Thank you guys. It was my first! I know it isn't really a typical review, but I thought putting a narrative spin on it made it more interesting. Mostly, it was an after thought, and was really about my true thoughts about the Torrent that I wanted to give to Ernie. It took awhile to compose, but this yo-yo, along with Ernie's effort, really deserved it.

Awesome to hear about this dude. 2 things right off...
One, the resistance or whatever your feeling when you screw it back together...
...I haven't stripped mine, but have noticed that it got really hard to tighten before it was close to being screwed in all the way...
Number two, I agree with you about the engravings on the production run. I dont mean this as a personal attack whatsoever, but the engravings on the production run makes it look kind of like a cheap yoyo. Aesthetics have almost as much to do with a yoyo as it's build and quality IMO. People like things to play nice for sure, but they like them to look good too. I'd hate to think that people were passing up on an awesome playing yoyo because they're not too crazy about the engravings on it (which affect the play not one single bit).
As passive as I have tried to be in my mind on this, I just cant seem to convince myself that they're ok. Especially when I've seen the unengraved ones and find it difficult to quit looking at it. It's an amazingly clean looking yoyo. I just wish the engraved logo's were a little more appealing to me.
Just my thoughts, I honestly mean no harm there.
This yoyo sounds like a real player. Thanks for posting your thoughts on it, Vendetta.

Nothing to add here...my feellings on this yo are clear. It's as good as anything else on the market...period, end of story.
The graphics are not as exciting as other offerings out there...and while I don't claim to know anything...I think that Ernie is likely listening.
It is a shame if anyone passes on this one because of the logos....because you'd be missing out on one of the best playing yos out there.
Time to go throw my Torrent :)
