It is always amazing to see a yo-yo player come out of nowhere to make a name for themselves. Harold Owens III went from winning a couple of small local contests one year to taking the top spot at the USA National Yo-Yo Contest the next year. His smooth and fluid on stage presence have made him one of the “must-see” performances at every contest that he attends. When we started working together with Harold on an idea for a signature yo-yo, the designs looked different than anything that we had ever made before. The H.O.T. is one of the biggest and boldest YoYoFactory yo-yos ever released!

Victor Gravitsky may be a well known name in the yo-yo world, but in Russia, Victor is a force to be reckoned with. Winning the national championships 3 times in a country where yo-yo popularity has exploded over the past ten years is no easy thing to do. To top it off, Victor won his third title on a plastic YoYoFactory Protostar, proving that you don’t need a $150.00 metal yo-yo to win it all. To commemorate Victor’s success, we have made him a custom Protostar, the first to feature translucent body with gold glitter, gold weight rings, and a custom logo.

After Shu Takada dominated the 2012 World Yo-Yo Contest with the YoYoFactory Loop900, we sat him down and started working on ways to improve the Loop900 design. The adjustment mechanism was improved and moved from being off centered to the very center of the yo-yo halve. The plastic spacers were resized and slightly re-designed and the weight and shape were very slightly altered. The result of all of these changes yielded an entirely new yo-yo that proved its worth by winning the USA National Yo-Yo Contest on production prototypes! Whether you are a top level 2A player looking for the best looping yo-yo or a beginner looking to take your looping skills to the next level, the Loop1080 has a setting for you.

Paul Han is a yo-yo legend. After 15+ years of yo-yoing, Paul has traveled the entire world to promote yo-yoing, he has more competition titles under his belt than almost any other yo-yo player, and he is still one of the most recognizable faces in yo-yoing today. The only yo-yo that we could see matching Paul’s massive influence on the yo-yo world is the all new ONEstar. Using the popular shape of the Protostar and the unbelievably durable material of the ONE, the ONEstar is pure performance at a budget price. Top it off with a hot pink body and zebra printed caps and you have a yo-yo that is as dynamic as Paul Han.

After the Genesis was released in 2009 to rave reviews and massive popularity, YoYoFactory wondered if there was anything that they could do to improve this design. After testing a few different concepts, the overwhelming winner was the addition of YoYoFactory’s patented triple bearing Hubstack System. Not onlydo the hubstacks enable you to perform different tricks, but the additional weight and the altered weight distribution change the Genesis into a completely different beast. Limited in color and quantity, these won’t last long!
