YoYoFactory - Axolotl
A new finger spin (DNA) model for beginners.
This is the new signature model of Betty Gallegos, who is one of the top influencers in the yo-yo world, holding many titles such as the world women's division champion and Mexican national champion, and has over 1.8 million subscribers to her YouTube channel (as of January 2024). This is a beginner yo-yo aimed at people who start yo-yoing after watching Betty's videos.
It is based on the company's "Arrow" yo-yo. This model is easy to handle even for beginners because it spins well even with light force and comes back firmly with a light pull.
It even has an indentation for finger spin, making it ideal for people who want to try DNA and start yo-yoing.
It comes with a thicker bearing (size C bearing), which can be installed to make the Axolotl "bind responsive," meaning it doesn't return with a tug, but will continue to spin until you perform a bind trick. This means the Axolotl grows with you as you progress into more advanced tricks.
This is recommended for both those who have played with yo-yos in the past and those who are just starting out.
