YoYoFactory® was founded by two-handed yoyo players. The technology that YoYoFactory® has focused on most is improving responsive yoyo play. Starting with wood axles and developing BPT to replicate the wood axle feel when bearings were first introduced into the mainstream. Quickly learning that BPT was an excellent but short lived and high maintenance/high cost experience. The modern breakthrough of F.A.S.T. technology gave longevity, and adjustability, excellent for heavy wing shaped yoyos. Loop720 brought an abstract concept to response with the SOS system. Perfect for the traveler who only wanted to carry a yoyo and string without any other maintenance items also lending long lasting and reliable responsiveness. Velocity Dial Technology brought infinite adjustability to give the user the chance to grow from responsive to unresponsive play with 120 clickable settings. The Loop900 brought gap adjustability with the simple twist of a key built to satisfy the highest level player rather than practicing the dark art of “cracking” to get the desired gap. The Loop1080 pushed the adjustable gap tech even further with a centralized adjustment system. Our belief is that the height of looping technology is only one step further and could only have been mastered from the data gathered from the previous technologies.
Concept: Undeniable looping performance /No compromises
relationship between the key elements: response/gap need to be separated
spin time must increase through precision
starburst wear is real and must be accounted for
(complexity is ok, as long as it delivers result!)
Draft TUNING GUIDE (incomplete part 2 coming)
STRING: 100% Poly WHITE type 6. The yoyo was designed around this string HOWEVER with the plethora of options in configuration personal preferences are sought
LUBE: YoYoFactory Performance oil LOOP/RESPONSE and LONGSPIN are recommended. Personal and alternate preferences are sought
CLEANING:personal preferences are sought

To become a 2020 MEMBER
Membership is not free, but you won't be buying a yoyo either. This next stage in development we need partners. Players willing to test, try and offer feedback. Some time this month, when we have our instructions ready and the time to fulfill everything, we will offer 'Memberships'. will get you all the components of 2 yoyos (plus additional parts options). It will come with a membership card/tag, which will identify your membership number. shipping will be an additional cost. International shipping will be available. You will have access to additional 'complimentary' product at a discounted price.
Members will need to return feedback periodically.
Members will receive access to discounted product in the future as well as exclusive items. We are also planning a system for members to earn credits for generating content, posting videos, helping other people and sharing the love of 2A.
On the yoyos: despite their prototype status, they will come with a full warranty on manufacturers defects. If a part fails, we can replace it (within reason) but, they are prototypes so there will be some limits on what we can replace (i.e. look, color style, potentially exact specifications).
additional members only items.

QUESTION: What relationship does changing each part have to:
b) loop angle
c) spin time
