YoYoFactory has an undeniable commitment to quality and performance yoyos at every price, something that has underpinned our development of the ONEstar and also lead to the decision today to delay the launch of the ONEstar.

 

Original prerelease versions of the ONEstar featured a very large gap, in narrowing that gap it appears the bearing seat durability has been compromised to a degree impacting on durability and longer term performance. We apologies to everyone anticipating this launch and  reinforce our commitment to making ONEstar the best performance value plastic yoyo in the world.

 

A new release date has not been scheduled but we anticipate it will be early in 2013. This will effect both general release and the PAUL HAN champions collection wave 2 ONEstar.

 

Thank You for your support and understanding.

It’s been a minute since we saw what Gentry was up to. Looks like after US Nationals he’s got a bag full of new moves and concepts! That’s whats up!

Ibrahim Rahman, better known as Ibs, is a character. He’s always up to something, and he’s probably having more fun at it then you. This definitely translates into his yo-yoing.

Clint is one of those rare few who’s excitement and energy is contagious. He’s never not Yo-Yoing and exploring new ground. And because of this, his Yo-Yoing is always a treat to watch. He’s got it.

You’d be hard pressed to find a more creative, passionate, drive group of professionals then those of the YoYoFactory Team. World and National Champions, International icons, Trick innovators. Each move of each trick is meticulously refined to be the most valuable, jaw dropping maneuver on stage, or film. Paulo is no exception. Holding it down for us in Southern California, and ushering in a new generation of Champion Yo-Yo Players, his tricks are deep. This new concept video takes it beyond just a new set of tricks, but explores a larger flow and visual concept that is wonderfully executed.

In 2009, the style of yo-yoing known as ‘3A’ changed forever when Kentaro Kimura walked in stage at the World Yo-Yo Contest. Kentaro’s 1st place routine from that year is still held as one of the most exciting and mind-blowing routines to have ever been performed on the World stage. In combination with Kentaro and his ultra high end yo-yo company, Turning Point, we have created an all new model, the Proton. Pulling design influence from Turning Point yo-yos and YoYoFactory yo-yos, the Proton offers a very unique feel and world champion level performance.

YoYoFactory’s first Machined acetal Yo-Yo, The Severe is 2012 US National Champion Tyler Severance’s newest Signature model. Take design inspiration from his very popular Supernova, the Severe is a precision machined plastic yo-yo with great weight distribution. A unique metal axle system insures smooth, reliable play and the body is finished with a soft, smooth feel that’s great in the hand, and on the string.

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!
