YoYoFactory - 45
Mini sized everyday carry, with finger spin caps!
Yo-Yo Factory's old 44 (forty-four) classic was self-homaged into this 45 (forty-five). However, although the name is close, the concept is totally different. While there are several versions of "44," this one bears no resemblance to any of them.
The shape is a step-straight, which has never been used in the past for this series, and the weight balance and feel are completely different. If anything, the yo-yo lives up to its name, weighing in at about 45 grams, which is consistent with the concept of the 2021 version of the 44. This is much lighter than a regular metal yo-yo, and when you throw it it will fly away, like it were made of paper. It has a fingerspin cap and is designed to be the ultimate casual yo-yo. This concept gives the impression that it is more like the 444 (Four Four Four) with a different shape, or the Czechpoint Pivot in miniature size.
The true value of this product is that it offers more variations in shape and equipment in a size that is easy to carry in your pocket. This is a great point for those who are looking for a portable yo-yo that's easy to play. While it doesn't have the power of a full-size yo-yo, it is less tiring to use, and the more you play with it the more you'll want to play. This is a yo-yo that you will want to keep close at hand at all times!
