The ROCKstar, the perfect step-up model, gets a renewal seven years after its initial release.
For many players that have gotten hooked on yo-yos, the ROCKstar was the first full metal model they lusted after. Designed to be an instant classic, unfazed by the trends but still be made to the satisfaction of the most demanding players, the ROCKstar was designed as a promotional model, between Yo-Yo Company and YoYoFactory.
Its simple step-straight body shape has survived the years, and even this refresh hasn’t changed it much. Compared to the straight, sharp edges of the inner body, the side face features a beatiful sloping curve that rolls out from the flat center face all the way to the rims. Thanks to this exquisite weight distribution, ROCKstar boast a power and feeling that is only bested by how easy it is to control. The light body won’t wear your arm out, even after extended practice sessions, while you come up with new tricks to impress your friends and fans.
In addition to single-handed string tricks, of course the ROCKstar can easily throw down some counterweight (5A) and 2-handed string trick (3A). For the price, you can’t beat it as a step up model, and you can affordably fill your contest tray with these puppies!
Also, if you aren’t quite ready for the bind response tricks, you can step the bearing down to a size C- bearing (sold separately), letting you turn your ROCKstar into a tug-response model. If the response gets too weak for you, you can use a drop of looping oil, and don’t forget to freshen up your response pads every now and then with YYF Pro Pads (Green).
