YoYoFactory - Northstar (Champions Collection)
Another version of the Protostar, showing new possibilities for plastic yo-yos.
This model is a reissue of the same design as the model used by the world champions of the time. Therefore, the specifications may differ from those of the current model or the model of the same name at that time. Also, there may be damage to the packaging.
This yo-yo was originally created as a signature model for Jensen Kimmitt, the 2010 World Yo-Yo Contest Champion in the 1A division. While more than 90% of the participants used full metal yo-yos, it was a plastic yo-yo based on the Protostar that beat out the competition. Although it is a plastic model, it offers the same level of performance as full metal yo-yos. It is not a yo-yo that only advanced players can handle, but it is a yo-yo that allows you to practice your tricks in a relaxed manner.
Like the prototype Protostar, it is also recommended for those who want to learn to bind. It is sometimes difficult to do tricks with a plastic model that can be done with a full metal model, but when you use a high performance plastic model like the Northstar, you will see that a full metal model is not necessarily better.
