In 2009, YoYoFactory changed the world of yo-yoing forever when it vowed to release plastic yo-yo designs that were capable of outperforming the best full metal yo-yos on the market. After almost a year of research and design, the Northstar yo-yo was released at the 2010 World Yo-Yo Contest where it was used to take 1st place in the competition.


The Northstar sports a very unique shape that is designed to be comfortable in the hand and wide enough to land even the toughest tricks. Combine this with the Central Bearing Co. patented Center Trac Bearing, silicone response pads, and custom aluminum weight rings, and you have the highest performing plastic yo-yo on the market.
