Yoyo Factory Hubstack Afterglow first impressions

i just got my YYF Hubstack afterglow and after a bit of playing around with it here is my honest opinion

  • right out of the box and it is beautiful.

    somethings i noticed/ discovered.  those two bolts will strip literally the instant you touch them, however, it doesn't really seem to effect the yoyo at all during play.  also the only way to access the batteries and LED is to take off the hubstacks which is excessively difficult. somethings i noticed/ discovered. those two bolts will strip literally the instant you touch them, however, it doesn't really seem to effect the yoyo at all during play. also the only way to access the batteries and LED is to take off the hubstacks which is excessively difficult.
  • look at that glow

    the hubstacks are awesome, nice and wide.   the yoyo fits well in your hand and has a really nice shape.   I've been having problems with one of my halves not lighting up and a significant wobble right out of the box, hopefully it is just my yoyo and YYF or YYE will replace it. the hubstacks are awesome, nice and wide. the yoyo fits well in your hand and has a really nice shape.

  • it plays about as well as i expected

  • things to notice in the video

    as you can hear in the video the yoyo is crazy loud. it sounds like a little pissed off robot is on the end of the string screaming as you swing him around. also the spiral effect that you see in the video is less noticeable when your looking at it live. lights are nice and bright even during the day though, that is a nice change of pace from most glow throws. i think that the yoyo would play worlds better if it had metal weight rings around the edges like the speeder 2, it would elevate it from a good yoyo that ill use because it has cool lights, to an amazing yoyo that i would use because it plays as well as y other high end throws. like i said before mine has a slight wobble that may be making it vibe excessively and lose spin. hopefully it will get warranted and the other units make less noise and vibe less.

  • even my possibly defective unit is still a good player

  • now i know everyone needs to see what it looks like in the dark

        Thats not too bad, I figured the glowing one was at least 100 bucks. Shows how much I know about Yoyos..
