    I know that metal isn’t “ideal” just the fact that offstring being done with a metal just seems fun to me. so hey I’ll get 30 bucks to just blow on a yoyo and get a miracle just for that, for fun.

    Yeh, but still. 5A players use metal yoyos all the time, knowing full well that yoyo will hit the ground and get dings occasionally, and they seem to hold up. i think the appeal of metal is a performance issue and not one of cosmetics of durablility. Plastics just cant seem to match the Inertia metals seem to possess.

    I think that for offstring, plastic is the ideal material. Metal is nice and very durable, but it is also extremely rigid compared to plastic. I am not a designer, so I cannot be sure, but I would guess that the complacency found in plastic protects the guts and prevents most damage.
    Your choice, but I would absolutely prefer plastic for this. (also consider that every time it hits a wall or ceiling, a metal yoyo will leave a mark)

    I do agree with tommy, 200 bucks is going way too far for something that WILL hit concrete. over the summer I plan to get an aoda miracle and throw in a yyj thin bearing (if it will fit) and use that for 4a but even though that’s a metal it’s only 30 bucks, 10 bucks more than a hayabusa and bigyo and about 15 more than a big ben and fiesta. Point is, 200 bucks is way too expensive.

    I get it’s handcrafted, but that only goes so far. Every company can venture into the realm of luxury yoyos, but I think focusing only on a niche-within-a-niche market is limiting and doesn’t do a company as creative as Japan Technology justice. They should step out of there comfort zone and look into how they can make an affordable, innovative offstring yoyo.
