This highly-customizable EX-System series sees its 4th release: the Alternative (1A Type).
This 4th release from the EX-System series is the Alternative: a great oversized 1A (string trick) type yo-yo, that also makes a good undersized 4A (off string) type yo-yo. Out of the box, this yo-yo’s default settings are for string tricks, using the same size C bearing response unit and lock crest as the Exceed. A slightly oversized 1A throw, this version of the Alternative bears a resemblance to the non-customizable Elements, with a well-balanced weight and smooth feeling. You can even add a weight ring to your setup, giving you further control over how it plays.
Of course the yo-yo has its own unique feeling out the box, but as a member of YoYoJoker’s EX-System series, the Alternative is a beautiful example of the customizable concept behind the EX series.

This has become one of my favorite throws. Very stable, feels comfortable. It's an oversized throw, making it more forgiving for beginners who are learning how to bind and mount. I bought the weight rings and it has some really good spin time. Good buy for the money.
