For those who have already mastered the basics, the Whip is your new step-up model.
Sleeper, Rock the Baby, Elevator... for those of you who have already cleared the basic level tricks, you're probably looking for a yo-yo that packs a little more punch, but aren't sure which is right for you. YoYoFactory saves the day with the Whip. Using their high performance Grind Machine as a base, YYF has created a simple but effective yo-yo. It throws like a light Grind Machine; its long sleeper and stability are a huge step up from beginner models, and its wide body makes it easy to land tricks. Its potential is a superb value for the cost, the Whip is a fundamental step between your first yo-yo and your first professional throw.
The Whip is the first release in YoYoFactory's new EVERY1 Series, with the intention of getting yo-yos into everyone's hands. From that concept, the Whip's ease of use and low price suddenly begin to make sense.

super cheap, super stable, pretty darn good spin times. If you want to do horizontal tricks it is a 5/10. For long tech combos 8/10. If the spin time is slowing down a lot then lube it with Yo yo factory thin lube. If your on a budget but you are a good player, then I would totally recommend getting this yo yo.
Super cheap, super stable, and I really wanted to time so I did! When I did, it spun for around 2:55 - 3:13. So 5 months later it spun for 1:08, if this happens just lube it and it will spin for around 2:55 - 3:16. In terms of speed it is about 8/10. It can't do long tech combos very well, but i'm sure that with enough skill and concentration you can pull off anything you particularly want. Over all a really great yo-yo definately worth buying.
