THE SHUTTER is the signature model of 4 time USA National Champion and 2014 World YoYo Champion Gentry Stein. Designed from the ground up the SHUTTER features an inner foil designed to achieve a weight distribution that offers power/speed and control through long technical combinations and flashy performances. It also offers unique finger spin opportunities on both inner faces as well as a central and outer ring grind capabilities. It takes more than a great yo-yo to be a Champion, but a great yo-yo is something every Champion needs.
This is an unresponsive yoyo.
The History of Yo-Yo
The story begins more than 400 years ago when Spanish explorers first stepped foot off their Galleons onto the shores of the archipelago in the 16th century. Noted in a news article from 1916 the Filipino historians recollect that Spaniards first introduced the spin top to local tribes when trying to describe the shape of the earth and how it rotates in space.
The word “yo-yo” was forgotten for almost a decade in the USA until Pedro Flores, remembering the toy he played with as a child in the Philippines, replicated the production practices mastered by the School of Arts and Trades, and set up shop in Los Angeles in 1927. Although we can thank Pedro Flores for the concepts of mass distribution of the yo-yo, Professional travelling demonstration of the yo-yo, play pattern of holding trick contests and awarding prizes with yoyos… ultimately we need to thank the Philippine School of Arts and Trades for bringing us the first mass produced, one piece, lathe cut yoyo with a string gap so narrow that they could only loop the thin string around the axle and twist rather than securing a knot. They brought to America the modern competition capable “sleeping” yoyo.
The yo-yo that started it all! When YoYoFactory’s president, Hans Van Dan Elzen first had the idea of starting a yo-yo company, he had an idea for a yo-yo that would be so unique that it made yo-yoing easier to learn, easier to share with your friends, and ultimately more FUN.
The best way to learn how to yoyo is to get a yoyo that is right for your level of skill. “Best Yoyo” is a matter of personal choice since yo-yos come in all shapes, sizes, and price ranges. It depends on the age and skill of the player, as well as what tricks they want to perform with the yo-yo.
