In one word: Stellar. The Superstar is among the most successful competition yo-yos ever created; including being used by YoYoFactory team member John Ando to take the top spot at the 2008 World Yo-Yo Contest. With extreme weight distribution that has most of its weight focused far out on the rims for maximum stability and YoYoFactory’s patented triple bearing Hubstack technology, a large Central Bearing Co SPEC bearing, and slim silicone response, the Superstar is THE choice of the modern yo-yo player.

Great feel and long spins (2+ minutes)
1. I added flush-valve washers from the local hardware store to increase the overall rim weight by about .5 grams. Not much difference in feel, but it increased spin time to about 4 minutes.
2. Replaced the axle bearing yesterday with an ABEC 5 Konkave. The stock bearing literally shot apart. No complaints though. I've been using it for a couple of years. I've been using Al Cass Valve Oil (for Trumpets).
I have about 20 yoyos. Several I use almost daily. Only one comes close to the quality of the Superstar - and that is the Internal Turmoil.

Superstars are visually appealing with their vibrant colors and shape. Huge catch zone for hitting the string and so fun. This is a yoyo that plays like a different yoyo when you remove the stacks. Without the stacks it plays much faster but not insanely fast. Super stable and smoooth. I really enjoy this yoyo and understand totally why so many people hope to own one.
