I bought mine maybe 2 years ago. Once I received it I realized it was meant for tricks that where a little more advanced than I knew at the time. I was practicing looping and you'll notice this yo-yo isn't responsive enough to do stuff like that, but that doesn't mean it's a bad yo-yo! This is meant for string tricks such as the trapeze because of the metal bearing in the center. As I started learning those things, this quickly became one of my favorite yo-yo's! Definitely would recommend if you want a higher experience level yo-yo. Great buy.
the string broke after a while of use, but I guess that's to be expected for any yoyo, and replacements strings aren't too expensive. I just wish that they also sold the scrapped design of the Eagle Lander, because that was my personal favorite design for this yoyo, and I would have bought that one if it was available.
THIS YO-YO IS A WORK OF ART!
I USE IT EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE!
IT WORKS LIKE A DREAM BUT THE STRING BROKE AFTER A FEW MONTHS
ABSOLUTE BUY FOR ANY EARTHBOUND FAN IF YOU HAVE SPARE STRINGS!!!!!!!!!!!
You might look at this and think it's an over priced yoyo, it's not. The regular yo mega raider is $13 but this is an EB custom and a must have in any collection! I'm learning the yoyo now! It would be so so so so much better if it was the exact smash bros design gosh I hate copy rights but great bag and original design!
I'm a pro-yoer and I don't know if it's been posted anywhere on the forums, but if your PK Yomega has stopped returning when you tug it, you probably need to put yo-yo oil or lip balm on the bearings. Doing so makes the yo-yo more responsive and sleep longer. I speak from experience; I've owned all four versions of the PK Yomega (only differences being the design and serial number being stamped into the side of the cap), and oiling a Raider will get it fixed in no time. I'd hate to see a fan and beginner yoer get discouraged because they didn't know.
The Yomega Raider brand is something of a legend in the yo-yo world for its balance of quality and value: it's basic and inexpensive enough for novices, but well-designed and versatile enough to win championships.
Each Yomega comes ready to roll in its own custom-printed pouch, but if you need string replacements we recommend #6 (classic) or #8 (thicker) string types. For these and other yo-yo resources, check out one of these sites:
