In collaboration with 2008 World YoYo Champion John Ando, YoYoFactory set out to reach a pinnacle in yo-yo engineering: Make a plastic yo-yo that outplays almost every metal yo-yo on the market. The result exceeded every expectation we had. The Protostar spins as long or longer than most metal yo-yos, plays as smooth as most metal yo-yos, and costs less than half of most metal yo-yos. With YoYoFactory’s Center Trac bearing as a stock feature, the Protostar is competition ready straight out of the box. Be warned that a few throws with this yo-yo may leave you reconsidering ever buying another metal yo-yo again.
