YoYoFactory - Loop 1080

This yo-yo is Shu Takada, 2016 2A world champion's signature model.

The Loop 1080 is based on Shu Takada's favorite throw, the Loop 900. Using the 900 as a base, Takada reformed the design to improve its performance even further, making the 1080 one of the world's best looping yo-yos.

Like the Loop 900, the 1080 uses the popular nylon spacer raider, with a small plastic spacer and a metal bearing. This spacer is different from the one in the 900. Using YYF's adjustable wrench you can adjust the gap width. The internals are further improved, allowing the gap to open slightly during play, which gives you finer control and spin than a fixed gap width.

Takada and YoYoFactory worked closely together, piling improvements and prototypes upon one another until they had the ultimate looping yo-yo. With the adjustable gap and options for strings and lubricants, there are endless combinations for you to try. We especially recommend the 1080 if you don't feel confident with your looping skills, but want to improve. The Loop 1080 is clearly a looping masterpiece. Comes with a white/blue/black mixed color string.

The gap comes set at the narrowest setting. The adjustment key is the same bit as the one made for Loop 900.

2012/12/01 announcement: the current run of 1080's have slight burrs on the side; these are a result of the manufacturing process and do not affect play.

"It is ideal for beginers & pros alike,
Its natural round shape fits to your hand for an easy throw.
I like the 1080 because it has a traditional shape.
The spin time on this yoyo is incredible.
One of the best looping yoyo's I have ever used."

I just got into 2A and it plays like a beast. You can adjust it to any setting you want to play at. It is light compared to other looping yoyos and does not have a hollow feel. It has taken me very far into 2A and I am sure I will choose it as my main throw
