In one word: Stellar. The Superstar is among the most successful competition yo-yos ever created; including being used by YoYoFactory team member John Ando to take the top spot at the 2008 World Yo-Yo Contest. With extreme weight distribution that has most of its weight focused far out on the rims for maximum stability and YoYoFactory’s patented triple bearing Hubstack technology, a large Central Bearing Co SPEC bearing, and slim silicone response, the Superstar is THE choice of the modern yo-yo player.
YoYoFactory Presents: Superstar ft. John Ando

SUPERSTAR Available August 1.
Superstar Launch- August 1st
In 2008 we wanted to see how far we could push the rules of yo-yo design. We wanted to make something wide and easy to control, because that’s what our team was asking for. We wanted something that could spin longer so our team could have the best chance at success. What we came up with was the Superstar. Early prototypes were hit or miss. The ones that worked were amazing! But, because of the inherent difficulty in the design, we didn’t plan on making them a production model. That is, until our team started winning World and National titles with it!
John Ando was the first to capture a World title with the Superstar in his ground breaking freestyle that turned a new generation of yo-yoers onto arm tricks and movement in a freestyle. After that, we knew we had to make this for every player. After careful engineering and working closely with our factories we finally had the ultimate competitive design. The Superstar has gone on to win tons of titles, and become a staple yo-yo in any players arsenal.
Now, 5 years later, we have taken the core philosophy of the Superstar and given it new attributes that todays players are asking for. We pushed the boundaries even wider. We brought the inner wall closer to the bearing to reduce friction when doing horizontal tricks. And, most noticeably, we designed it without hubstacks to minimize center weight for even longer spin times.
This is a true competitor, and with it you can be the next Superstar. Available Worldwide August 1st

YoYoFactory Presents: Alexander Pelevin
YoYoFactory Presents: A Protege Video, Joe and Mark. Alexander does two things: studying and training his skill. And these two things helped him to get YYF team. How he says: “When I’ve started to play with yo-yo I didn’t thought that it will bring me new horizons. I‘ve made good break in my yoyoing for small time, I have achieved not bad results in competitions and now I’m in respectful YoYoFactory Team. That’s great. But I know that I’m on the beginning and I’ll try to do the best I can!”
