I have a question, I'm a level 5-6 and I'm trying to buy a new yo-yo ever since mine broke last year. It says Freehand Zero are pretty good for that level but I'm looking at a Shinwoo Phanton which is very similar to the Freehand Zero and I was wondering would the SP be good for my level?

And also is there like a topic that tells you all the yo-yo lingos means? I haven't played for so long that I don't know any of these words like "a verstile yo-yo," and all these play styles like, "1A, 3A."

Thanks a lot,

I think the Phantom would be great for you. The silver one that came out recently is very nice because it comes with weight rings inside. They are ready to play right out of the box and start out very responsive until the bearing breaks in.

I don't do tricks on websites, so I have no idea. I don't think anyone is really a 10. Unless your like doc pop or steve brown. I'm probably a 9.

ummmm........ one flaw i think there should be another lvl because there are the ppl that are over 9 but cant exactly be 10's because like someone said above doc pop and steve brown and people like that should go there and alot of people that are lvl 10 dont have tricks named after them i.e. do the Yuuki? not putting it down i actually think this was an awsome idea and you got hit the lvls descriptions perfect and i really liked reading it.

Is the phantom a good company? I noticed it has Korean on the side so would buying parts be more harder? Or could I just use duncan parts?

Recommendations: Having achieved a sort of Yoyoing Nirvana these players are able to transcend the natural limitations of any yoyo they use.


like doing iron whips with a duncan butterfly?

To further clarify, the description for level 10 is hyperbolic because it is the top level.

Certainly, not every level 10 player has tricks named after them or has won awards...but the idea is that level 10 players could have invented cool new top-level tricks and/or been competetive at top competitions. The idea is more that a level 10 player doesn't think so much in terms of individual tricks, but has mastered the idea of combos and generally plays around by seamlessly fitting cool new moves into long complex combos. In this sense, I think that all the top competitors fit this category and quite a few other people do, as well.
