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. With the H.O.T., Harold went with a much larger diameter and width than the majority of our premium yo-yos. Combined with a large Center Trac bearing and pro silicone pads, the H.O.T. is one of the biggest and boldest YoYoFactory yo-yos ever released!
