Clyw Arctic Circle 2 yoyo review

Here it is!

The review of the AC2 is here.
NOTE: My AC2 is fools gold but the only problems are in the ano.

Specs and Size

The AC2 has specs that are all in the range of Clyw yoyos

Diameter: 55.6mm
Width:      45.25mm
Gap Width:  4.00mm
Weight:     65.1g

The AC2 has  a shape similar to the OG AC. When I am holding it, I feel like the AC2 has a shape similar to the Summit. However, the Summit has more of H shape while the AC2 has a slightly more V shape

How does it play?

The AC2 plays fast but floaty. It feels less stable than other Clyw yoyos like the Orca but is actually very stable in comparison. The AC2 is one of my favorite yoyos because you can go slow and smooth or fast with still a lot of flow. 

Final thoughts!

The AC2 is a joy to have in my collection. It is smooth, stable, and has that Clyw feel. I am sad to see that it has been discontinued but many are still available at certain retailers! I feel it is a amazing competition yoyo and can do all the tricks. Did I also mention its pretty fantastic at fingerspins?

Kitty 1.5 vs Kitty regular

Here it is. The time has come

Well all,
My first yoyo string reviews! Hopefully more coming! I like the Idea of doing two stings vs each other, so thats what I am going to do a lot of. Here is how this is going to work. I will talk about the durability, feel, how they play, and finally which is better. So lets get on with it!


When I first started this comparison, I realized I like the feel of Kitty Regular over Kitty 1.5. I find that regular is softer and smoother. It also seems to hold its tension better. Kitty 1.5 feels more like a harder, coarser string.


This is a tough category to give my opinion about. Like I previously mentioned, Kitty Regular has better string tension that lasts longer. However, it is softer which should mean it wears out faster. And it does, but only slightly. Really, durability should not be a deciding factor on which one is better, because they are pretty much the same in this category.

How they Play?

After playing which each for a very long time, I have my thoughts. I found that 1.5 was better at tech, and just felt better at it. Regular was definitely better at slacks and whips. That is pretty much all for this category.

Which is better?

Now this category is all about opinion. Personally, I found I liked regular more. Great yoyo players use both though. Andrew Maider, Harrison Lee, and Riccardo Faolini are just a few of the many great yoyo players to use regular, while Petr Kavka and Nuu Gatowsky use 1.5. I think you should get both, and decide which one is for you then.
