iYoYo - SHOOTiNG STAR
Made from machined polycarbonate, the SHOOTiNG STAR is a high end plastic yo-yo from iYoYo!
Modeled after the Iceberg, and mass-machined out of polycarbonate cores, the SHOOTiNG STAR was designed to cover your yo-yo journey from the very beginning to your first bind yo-yo.
Just like the Iceberg, the SHOOTiNG STAR is machined out of polycarbonate, which gives a really high end finish and texture to the body. This makes it a joy to play, easy to mount, and keeps your sleeps nice and long.
It comes out of the box with a tug response setting that's easy for beginners to play with. Perfect for learning how to sleep and perform those first string tricks, like trapeze, elevator, and brain twister, but it doesn't stop there!
By swapping out for the included Pixel Bearing (much thicker than the starter bearing), you can switch to a bind response setting, which means your yo-yo will evolve to have many times the sleeping power of the beginner setting!
Tugging won't bring the yo-yo back anymore! Also, the yo-yo won't unexpectedly come back before you want it to. You have to learn the bind technique to bring the yo-yo back to your hand. This opens up a whole new world of play styles and trick possibilities!
Focusing on string tricks, you can use this one yo-yo to help you level up from the very start to bind response play. This yo-yo has the ability to perform tricks like you see on the contest stage. The breadth of its capabilities is wide and deep.
Get one in your hand and throw like a champion!

I just received my 2 SHOOTING STAR YO-YOS ….They look amazing , feel perfect …I can see what all the excitement was all about .if they play as well as they look and feel , I’ll be thrilled ..I’ll keep you posted ….jack
I bought 3 shooting star yo-yo’s. 1 for myself and 1 each for my 9 year old boys. Straight out the box these are a beautiful looking and feeling throw. The adjustability on response with the inclusion of a wider concave bearing and axel is great as they can be setup for different skill levels easily. The only annoying thing I’ve found is the bearing fit is very tight, to the point where I damaged the narrow bearing removing it from the yo-yo. There are no instructions or tools to change it so not sure if there is a trick to it but something to be aware of. Apart from that I highly recommend the shooting start for all ages and skill levels.
As an intermediate Yoyo thrower I have a growing collection of Yoyos. The shooting star is my current favourite and the one I always seem to have in my pocket when I go out.
Nice Service, and a good yoyo
It’s heavy and fast yo-yo. It has good shape for string tricks and 2 bearings are big plus
