yoyonation G5 review!

G5 yoyoyonation edition review

The good: appearance, sleep times, hubs, shape, grinds, weight
The bad: axel centering issues, grinds, response

I got my g5 about a week ago and I am so impressed by it I decided to write my first review. Appearance IMO the vivid purple with the star is beautiful and I dont even like purple. Sleeptimes incredible sleeper, it outspins any of my other yos (fa5t fu, 888, tank, tfl) on a throw or hub start. Hubstack play the hubstacks are awesome stock but with some top tips you get a whole new realm of tricks. Shape I love the H-profile, It fits nicely in my hand for 1A and 5A plus my finger fits in the groove for finger grinds. Once you ding it the grinds hurt and slow down spin much faster though. Weight I really like the weight, Im not a big fan of light or heavy yoyos so 65-67 grams is perfect IMO. Axel Im not sure if my g5 is messed up or if this issue is for all g5s but mine has some axel centering problems. The axel tends to screw into one side more than the other, if I just screw the yo together one side will have the axel sticking out the hub! So I have unscrew it and manually screw each side in the proper distance, taking a minute or two but its really annoying. The stock response tends to bite. I put some flowable silicone in and it was unresponsive with tight binds. The yoyonation g5 is an all around great yoyo, and my new favorite player. If you dont have one, get one.

Nice review!!  O0 I have the same problem with the axle on my yoyo. Also it can get hard to get one half of the yoyo onto the axle. Does get a bit annoying, and you have to be carefull over concrete. Oh well. I love this yoyo so much!!! :smitten:
Nice review once again!!

little bit of teflon tape should do the trick.

     I believe Ben centers the axle and then applies a drop of super glue to hold it in place.

I have a lot of discrete thoughts so I'll just go point by point:

-I have a feeling your axle is anomalous. First I've heard of from YYFs that use this axle system
-Put a thick dif in one side and the response is really nice (for me).
-This has replaced my silver G5 as my favorite yoyo.
-White hubstacks look nice on these.
-I wish G5s were still numbered. I may just paint a 42 on mine for kicks.

Why not just use a little Loctite on the axle setup? I can't remember if its the RED or Blue... But be careful because one of them requires you to use a torch to remove it!
