YoYoFactory - D10 B Grade

The Phantom of Nate Dailey's signature model that never got released, it haunts us!

This signature model of Nate Dailey's sports a unique inverse round shape and a double-rimmed edge. As his signature model, it was designed to help him further develop his style, but unfortunately it never got a proper release. It was a pity, because it was a strong design and highly developed; Nate had a unique approach to weight distribution, delivering power just as he needed it.

His use of the double rim is crucial to this effect, putting a delicate balance between stable sleeps and a light, fast playfeel that keeps on going until you or physics finally gives out.

"What is B-Grade?"
In 2009, YoYoFactory started selling a selection of "outlet" items at events. Calling them "B-Grades," that name has spread throughout the yo-yo world, and is now a common term.
At B-Grade sales, you can pick up excellent yo-yos with mild imperfections, discolorations, marks or scratches. These make them less desirable as finished products, but they're still great yo-yos and totally playable, meaning you can get a high quality throw for a bargain price. As a result, B-Grade sales have become very popular.

"What kinds of B-Grades are there?"
The majority of B-Grades have small discolorations or cosmetic blemishes from the anodization process. These are known as "C-Types," whereas yo-yos that are not perfectly balanced and have some vibes are called "V-Types." Some may have both types of imperfection; it's always good to double check

Important Points:
B-Grades are outlet products because for one reason or another they haven't met the maker's standards for their products, things to look out for include:
-color imperfections, finish may look dull or scratched
-bearing or response pads aren't well installed or working properly. Often, switching out these parts will address these issues.
-Bearings or pads may differ from the standard product model.
-Artwork or logos may differ from the standard model.
-Other issues may exist, but nothing so bad as to make the yo-yo unplayable.

Minor anodization flaws, very minor vibe on par with metal magic yoyos. I don't know why this was not more widely released but it seems B grades is all you can get of the D10, and it plays nothing second rate. The finish is the slickest of all yoyofactory I own and as such it grinds like a monster.
