YoYoTricks.com Poly Edge Yoyo Review

The YoYoFactory Poly Edge Yoyo is a bi-material signature yoyo of world yoyo champion Evan Nagao. The Poly Edge combines polycarbonate, stainless steel, and beautiful artwork to make a yoyo you don’t want to miss.

The Poly Edge is a polycarbonate plastic / stainless steel version of the EDGE. The shape is essentially the same, and the stainless steel weight ring is placed in the same spot on the inner rim. However, the plastic construction gives the Poly Edge a lighter, more agile feeling on the string, while still maintaining a powerful spin.

The Poly Edge is a real joy to play with. The plastic on the edge of the rims gives the yoyo a softer feeling in the hand, which is perfect for casual play. However, it is still a high performance, competition oriented yoyo and is ready to handle all of your most difficult tricks.

 

Manufacturer's Description of The Poly Edge Yoyo

When I first started yoyoing, the yoyos I played with were all made of plastic, so while designing “Poly Edge,” I wanted to recreate that nostalgic and fun feeling that I got from my classic Yomegas and Yoyojams I grew up with.

…………………………………..

After practicing with “The Edge” yo-yo everyday for 6 months straight to win the US National Yo-yo Contest, and then for another 2 months with “Edge Beyond” to win the World Yo-yo Contest, I wanted something new. The metaphor I like to use is that It’s like I was eating sushi everyday. I love sushi, but if you ate the same sushi for 6 months straight, you wouldn’t enjoy it as much by the end. Even if you were to eat tuna sushi for 6 months, and change to salmon sushi for another 2 months, it’s not a huge change, and you will eventually crave something different.

I had a strong desire to design something new and fun, but not at the sacrifice of precision and playability. After testing many designs, and getting some inspiration from my good friend, Eiji Okuyama, who owns Mowl (an incredible Japanese yoyo brand), I decided the only way to achieve all these elements at once was to machine a yoyo out of PolyCarbonate for a smooth throw, and add stabilizing steel weight rings for long spin.

When the final prototype for this yoyo came in, I did my first combo with it, and it gave me that warm nostalgic feel of being a kid again. I knew I hit the mark.

To be honest, I initially created this yoyo for my own enjoyment, but I realized how selfish it would be for me to not share such a fun throw, so it is with this excitement that I present to you “Poly Edge!”

………………………………

P.S. If you’re wondering about the art or the name of this yoyo, “Poly” stands for “PolyCarbonate,” but it can also stand for “Polynesian,” which is the style that the art is done in. Growing up in Hawaii, the Polynesian culture, just like yoyoing has always been a prominent part of my childhood. For this reason, the art, which was created by my good friend, Dylan Flemming, was created as a representation of my childhood and to pay respects to the incredible and beautiful Polynesian Culture!
