From beginners to intermediate players, the Onestar is a great choice to practice your first binds, or enjoy some responsive play.
This new Onestar is the renewal model of the very popular original, which is many peoples' first yo-yo and has helped so many young players step up to bind responsive play. It's an improvement to make it even easier than before to advance your skills.
Ready for the beginner, right out of the package!
This version is designed for the beginner, and is set to tug response out of the box so you can quickly practice your first throws. Even if the yo-yo starts to slow down and die, you can easily get it to return to your hands thanks to the "Half and Half Pad" response system. This gives you a good tight wind-up that means your next throw will be good and solid. These are the foundations of good tricks.
The Onestar is a "wing-type" body, which makes it easy to mount the spinning yo-yo on its string. This means you can attempt basic tricks like elevator and brain twister. You can also try harder tricks like planet hops and shoot the moon, as well as a variety of modified looping style tricks. There's a lot to explore with just the Beginner setting.
Swap out parts to step it up!
By swapping parts out with the upgrade kit, you're able to tranform your Onestar into a bind-response model, which means your sleep times will more than double, giving you more chance to practice tricks of increasing difficulty. Since the yo-yo will be less responsive, it'll be up to you to use a special trick called a "bind" to choose when to return it to your hand. Use this setting to try intermediate tricks like split the atom, barrel rolls/atomic fire, and other classics from the yo-yo boom era. Of course, you can also try your hand at new tricks that didn't exist back then, like eli hops, boingy boingy, and whips!
With such a simple toy, there are nearly endless ways to enjoy your yo-yo play. From the very basics to relatively complex tricks, the Onestar is all you need to get to the next level.
