Nate Dailey is ready....

Nate has been ready for a while actually.

Nate has been a standout in West Coast Yo-yoing for the past 3 years. For almost all that time we have been working on making him the perfect yoyo. In 2017 he has been throwing an unnamed prototype, codenamed D20 in contests like Worlds, BAC and The California state contest


Before D20 Nate was throwing his signature yoyo D10 which was only available to the public through a YoYoExpert Mystery Box.

Knowing Nate style, his preferences and desires in an ideal yoyo, the next challenge was to deliver something unique and exciting so inspire others to choose Nates yoyo. D10 played great but we had some problems in production and rather than make it average we went back to the drawing board. D20 played nice, but wasn't exciting. It looked kinda fugly and its performance was just nice. We could do better. 

This week we send Nate samples of what we think could be THE design. Its a nervous moment for us as designers but as players we know he is going to love it too. 

The wait could soon be over, we look forward to announce a NEW Nate Dailey yo-yo will soon be available!

World YoYo Contest 2017 Semi Finals Results!

Day 2 of the World YoYo Contest in Iceland is a wrap! YoYoFactory had a great turn out of competitors who are going to finals and we cannot wait to see the showdown for the World Title tomorrow! Congratulations to everyone who's made it this far! You can see everyone's routines below along with the full results from today!


Support the 2017 World YoYo Contest!

The 2017 World YoYo Contest is 100% funded by sponsors, participants and retail sales of event merchandise. There is no national association slush fund. This is the first time this has been attempted since the World YoYo Contest became a mobile event (not anchored in Orlando).

The contest HAS been funded by these means. The scalability of resources and fiscal responsibility of the organizing team to deliver the event will see a contest that runs at close to its expected income. It's not a profit making venture but obviously a loss would be placed directly on individuals so that wouldn't be ideal either.

The indiegogo platform has been used to increase the reach of distributing event merchandise, with all proceeds going to the contest. It also broadens the reach to individual sponsors.

We encourage everyone to support competitive yoyo by either

A) making a purchase to support the event

B) increasing the awareness of the contest on social media by either sharing the indiegogo campaign or even reposting the live feed during the contest so more of the world sees the contest

Thanks to all who have already contributed, those supporting through their attendance and of course the sponsors!
