I still remember with nostalgia when Jensen Kimmitt won the 2010 WYYC with the first generation of the orange YoYoFactory NorthStar. It revolutionized the international Yo-Yo scene and left us all stunned before one of the most charismatic players to this day.
The Kimmit era passed away but the myth of the NorthStar lives through and now YoYoFactory offers a second and bettered version of this iconic Yo-Yo, the NorthStar.
Either I am really wrong or we are living in strange times. Many manufacturers who have made the top products on the market, with the best technical characteristics to enjoy a fast and clean play, are investing in plastic Yo-Yos with the same characteristics as these in the top 10; yet, they are more oriented for a daily play. In other words, high quality plastic throws.
This YoYoFactory Northstar is a YoYo to enjoy and spend hours playing as it is historic in the YoYoFactory lineup. A Yo-Yo that is trying on a fresh set of new clothes but maintains its same DNA from 2010. Now I can say that 7 years later, the NorthStar legend is more alive than ever.
With almost the same profile of straight edges and angles as the first version, this new generation tries out new features like the possibility of ‘Fingerspins’ on each face of the Yo-Yo. It is also has new Stainless Steel rings to stabilize the Yo-Yo at all times and offer a performance that will surpass your expectations.
The first generation of the NorthStar was truly revolutionary in its time, and that is why YoYoFactory has spent months designing and adjusting a Yo-Yo like this one to continue to show it has never stopped being nº1.
