[Yo-Yo] YoYo Empire – Boreas II (POM) Review by TokYo-Yo

Another sweet option from YoYo Empire’s full POM body lineup, Boreas II has an inverse round design.

YoYo Empire’s POM body lineup, including the Notus, Eurus, Zephyr, and this Boreas II all are full POM-bodied throws with a metal hub forming the fingerspin spot over the axle, giving them all very attractive and refined looks. Each one has a different profile and body shape, letting you taste how those design decisions affect how the yo-yo plays, when all else remains the same. Machined from warm and soft POM plastic, they’re all a joy to throw.

The Boreas II has a smooth S-shaped inverse round profile, giving it a complex but enjoyable playfeel that combines power and control in a compact package.

The Boreas II comes in alternate flavors that use different body materials, including POM plastic, polycarbonate, and a metal rim variation. This is the POM plastic version.
