YoYoFactory - Nine Dragons

With its entire body wrapped in a full cover stack, Nine Dragons offers potential that is truly next-generation.

Sleep loss has been the enemy of yo-yo designers since we started throwing string tricks. YoYoFactory has been fighting the good fight since the beginning, and has now teamed up with Chen Jia Lin to come up with a new way to keep your tops spinning indefinitely. The V5 Catch Parts are so radical, they might be considered a new genre of yo-yos.

From the response area to the edge of the rim, the entire yo-yo body is shrouded in a full cover stack that spins freely from the yo-yo body. This means that when the string (or anything else) touches the yo-yo during play, it has little to no effect on the amount of spin. This alone is like the holy grail of string trick yo-yos, but the design also offers new opportunities for players to expand their bag of tricks. You can literally grab the yo-yo in mid-play, adjust its tilt, and grind it endlessly on your fingers.

In the future, Nine Dragons will take its place as a pivotal model in yo-yo history.

Great....? You decide.

First off, the Nine Dragons is innovative. We all knew that. The dragon caps offer unparraleled opportunities for innovation and trick creation, and all in a yoyo that costs less than $100. With the V5 caps and surely more innovative updates on the way, the Nine Dragons is a groundbreaking throw. The question is: is it an all-around great yoyo, aside from it's gimmick?

The answer: Not quite.

When throwing the Nine Dragons, do not expect top-level performance. This is not designed to be perfectly stable, it cannot handle off-axis very well, and it makes a noise like a herd of elephants. It's difficult to snap-start, there are 3 bearings to lubricate, and I felt myself avoiding finger spins due to its high-gloss finish.

All these things aside, the Nine Dragons is fine. It's great for crafting tricks, and the stability issue can be resolved by grabbing the yoyo and straightening it mid-throw. Beginners, and those not aware of the nuanced aspects of vibe and stability, with have unlimited fun with this yoyo. The price is for the technology, not the champion-level performance. The innovation is great, but the future will bring better yoyos with even greater performance.
