Yoyojam Phenom yoyo review
I have been sick so not a lot of content has been coming out from me so I thought I would start reblogging again with a review of an older yoyo from yoyojam- the phenom
Specs and Size
Here are the specs on the yyj phenom:
Acid Wash: 65g
Nickel plating: 69.1g
The Phenom is one of the many signatures yoyos of Hiroyuki Suzuki. The yoyo has a slightly smaller width than most yoyos from other yoyo companies(clyw,onedrop, ect) but is still enough to not have a major impact on string catches. The yoyo is just around normal in weight.
How does it play?
The Phenom plays like how Hiroyuki Suzuki's style looks- Fast. I have tried this yoyo in both Nickel and Gold, and I can tell you they both play like they are very light weight. The bi-metal design alows the yoyo to sleep for an extremely long time. Another thing you should notice about the yoyo is its shape. It has one of the strongest V shapes on the yoyo market. But after much inspection, one can notice the slight curvature of the yoyo.
Well, the Phenom is an amazing yoyo. Unfortunately, this yoyo technology is starting to really fall behind. This yoyo is good. But with the $140 price tag, I'd much rather recommend a newer fast yoyo- like an Angle, Superfly Remix, or, with a little more saving, you can get yourself a nice YYR.
