YoYoFactory - Wedge B Grade

Wedge is Evan Nagao's first signature model to be machined from POM plastic.

The Wedge is US National 1A champion, Evan Nagao's second signature model. Machined from POM plastic, it's large, and has a concept derived from speedy Edge, but with a completely different playfeel.

The POM plastic body gives the Wedge a soft feeling in the hand, with a hefty 68 gram weight that gives you all the power you need, but doesn't feel overly heavy during play. The control is smooth, just like the Edge, but now the body material matches the playfeel.

Lastly, thanks to the metal nut on the side that joins the axle to the plastic body, you get one feature that was missing from the Edge: a concave spot for easy finger spins. The design drops the axle directly over your fingertip, keeping it centered and steady while you work your magic.

"What is B-Grade?"
In 2009, YoYoFactory started selling a selection of "outlet" items at events. Calling them "B-Grades," that name has spread throughout the yo-yo world, and is now a common term.
At B-Grade sales, you can pick up excellent yo-yos with mild imperfections, discolorations, marks or scratches. These make them less desirable as finished products, but they're still great yo-yos and totally playable, meaning you can get a high quality throw for a bargain price. As a result, B-Grade sales have become very popular.

"What kinds of B-Grades are there?"
The majority of B-Grades have small discolorations or cosmetic blemishes from the anodization process. These are known as "C-Types," whereas yo-yos that are not perfectly balanced and have some vibes are called "V-Types." Some may have both types of imperfection; it's always good to double check

Important Points:
B-Grades are outlet products because for one reason or another they haven't met the maker's standards for their products, things to look out for include:
-color imperfections, finish may look dull or scratched
-bearing or response pads aren't well installed or working properly. Often, switching out these parts will address these issues.
-Bearings or pads may differ from the standard product model.
-Artwork or logos may differ from the standard model.
-Other issues may exist, but nothing so bad as to make the yo-yo unplayable.
