Your coming to the competition? Fantastic!
Thats great to hear. Not many people use yomega for 1a or for any of the A's other than 2a. Raiders are still a staple yoyo for looping when modified.
Alot of players use high end metal yoyos, such as the Werrd TFL88 and the XXXXL (yet to be released in full, but some people have them already) and other metals like YoYo Factory yoyos. YoYoJam is still very popular, with their high quality low price and high performance yoyos, and lets not forget Duncan yoyos (the FHZ in particular) which I would use If I didnt have my Werrd yoyos.
If you want pm me your phone number, or I can PM you mine, and we can let you know whats happening in sydney in the few days before the comp (e.g. meets, gatherings and Squires.)
