Some yoyos spin fantastically. I have one that will remain spinning on the end of the rope for more than a minute. But great spinners don't snap back up. What I do is I have two yoyos. If a trick needs a great spin, I use the good spinner. If it needs the yoyo to return, I use the less good spinner.

In other words, you are not looking for the right yoyo, but the right yoyo for the particular trick you are doing.

Failing that go for a middle-of-the-road spinner that spins for a good but not great length of time. It will do most things reasonably well.

The jugglingstore.com carries a wide selection of yo yo's for you to choose from. I have always found them to be very knowledgeable, and honest about their products in the past, and I recommend you give them a call. They have a toll free number.

Here are a couple yoyos that will work perfect for you:

The ONE: http://www.yoyonation.com/product.php?pr......1&page=1

Cheap. Plastic. Comes with TWO bearings. (Responsive and Unresponsive.) Seriously. Takes you from a beginner style yoyo, to an amateur 1A style of play.

The WHiP: http://www.yoyosam.com/p-1238-yoyofactory-whip-yo-yo.aspx

Completely unresponsive. Cheap. I can do quite a lot of beastly tricks with this cheap unresponsive PLASTIC yoyo. Ugh. Its sickening to think I had to spend $50 dollars when I first started for a yoyo not even half as good as this when I started.

The JK: http://www.yoyonation.com/product.php?pr......1&page=1

Perfect cheap metal yoyo. If you want a high performing, well made, cheap yoyo that will last you through the initial learning stages (bind, trapeze, double or nothing... and so on), this is it.

I wish I could give you any specific advice, but all the yo-yo companies that I used to buy from back when I was really into yo-yos are now non-existant. I have a really great machined aluminum yo-yo with a ballbearing axle that had great spin and a good snap back, once it snapped back so hard it cracked my wedding ring.
If yomega still makes the bumblebee the way it used to that was a reasonably nice yo-yo. I was also into hardwood yo-yos as well, back when butterfly yo-yos was still in existance. You'll find that when you get into yo-yos you'll develop quite a collection. At least I did.

I heard from a friend that anecdotal evidence is actually quite reliable.
