YoYoFactory - Onestar (Old)
The Onestar is a delrin bind response model, continuing the design sense of the infamous Protostar.
Just like the Northstar and Starlight before it, the Onestar is based on the Protostar's design, but with a new concept and material. While the One was targeting beginners and intermediate players looking to practice their binds, the Onestar combines that with the low edge and top performance of the Protostar, for a winning recipe.
Since the Onestar is injected delrin, it has a different texture to it than the normal polycarbonate plastic used in other yo-yoys.

I have the black version of the onestar and I'm really enjoying it! I recently decided to start playing with yoyos again and decided to try the onestar due to its low price and I heard it performed well, which is true!
The last time I played with yoyos, I was quite young and was only allowed to have a basic duncan imperial. Of course, that limited the tricks I could learn with it. This means my skills mostly involved looping tricks.
When I first tried the onestar, I had absolutely no experience with butterfly yoyos, and definitely never used a non-responsive yoyo before. However, the onestar made it easy to pick up my skills again! It can sometimes be a little unforgiving when you throw a bad throw, but generally it has a very good balance. Learning to bind all of a sudden was slightly tricky since I haven't played in ten years, but within half an hour I was able to do it consistently and move on to proper string tricks!
My friend who has never played with yoyos before wanted to try and ended up hitting the yoyo against the wall/floors quite hard, but the delrin body shows zero signs of damage even after all that.
Overall, incredibly good value for money, great for even someone like me, who has not touched a yoyo for so long, and who only has looping experience. It even comes with a center-trac bearing, which is fantastic.
