Hyper Yo-Yo - Hyper Comet
Our recommendation for beginners, the yo-yo used by Top Spinner's Shun!
A new 2010 mdoel for beginners, MonsterShell is a Japan-only version of YoYoFactory's FireDog, rebranded for Bandai's Hyper Yo-Yo series. It employs a nylon spool axle (described as a nylon transaxle on the package), giving it a longer sleep than fixed axle. Great for first-timers. The body is fixed and cannot be disassembled, and no maintenance is necessary other than replacing strings. It comes with blue string from the maker. It has a traditional rounded shape that will work well for young newcomers.
A good yo-yo for first timers, it has all the abilities necessary to build a strong foundation. It comes with a user's manual with instructions for basic care and tricks. Using this official Hyper Yo-Yo, you can receive official Hyper Yo-Yo certification at an official participating Yo-Yo store (such as REWIND).
*This is essentially the same model that was given out at the 2010 World Hobby fair when Bandai was just starting the new Hyper Yo-Yo Boom.
