Honestly, you would be better off with a Duncan Butterfly than a Henry's Lizard lol, for that price range, you can go to Toys R Us and pick up a Duncan Freehand (or Freakhand) 2.

The Lizard is a fine starter's yo-yo.
It will take you through the basics with ease.
The adjustable gap is really nice.

don't buy any henry's yoyo. Alot of people from my school have henry's yoyos and they suck (including viper). I would recommend maybe like yyf one or duncan freehand

If you can find a Henry's, get one. They're quite fun.
This should be played at high volume, preferably in a residential area.

Like yoyospirit said, get a butterfly and a freehand. The butterfly will be great for basic tricks and the freehand will last you a long time.

Well, you can't blame the yo-yo  for that.
If they practiced more, they wouldn't suck so hard.
