So this would be a proper good starting yoyo?
I'm no pro, but from what I've read starting with responsive yoyos should be the way to go because for unresponsive throws, they do not return to your hand when you tug on the string. You need to learn how to do a specific type of maneuver called a bind to return the throw back into your hand.
this is just a random guide I grabbed. You can also practice binding with responsive kits, but in my experience doing binds this way are much less forgiving than binding on an unresponsive yoyo.
IMO, this would be a fine way to start, but you would have to learn to "bind" fairly early. An easy way to suplement this, would be to buy a cheap yoyo, like from a Walmart. Something like a "Duncan Proyo" or a "Duncan Butterfly" just to learn the good straight throw. That will make learning to bind much much easier. The yoyo community's favorite starter yoyo is the "YoYo Jam Classic." So you can look that up if you want a quality responsive yoyo to start on (no "bind" required) instead of this one. The problem is that it is already so cheap($10) that you probably wouldn't see it here on massdrop.
