The Grind Machine by Yoyo Factory is a new, all plastic player that performs like a metal yo yo, without the high price. The Grind Machine produces an excellent extended spin time right out of the box, which every yoyoer can appreciate.

The Grind Machine yoyo is the very first plastic yoyo on the market to feature the YYF triple bearing Hub Stack system, which allows the yo yo to be held while its spinning.

Until now, you had to buy an expensive metal yoyo like the 888 or the G5 from YoyoFactory if you wanted to experience not one, not two, but three awesome bearings in a single yoyo. Thatís because it is a patented design by YoYoFactory. They were reserving the best technology for their highest level yoyos. But fortunately for cash strapped yoyo players everywhere, YoyoFactory decided to let the technology ďtrickle downĒ to the Grind Machine, which fits almost every budget.

What do you do with the hubstacks? Glad you asked! Basically, those little plastic nubs on each side of the yoyo on the outside allows you to grab and pinch the yoyo while it is spinning, which makes for a mind boggling trick to spectators.

Even cooler, you can grab the Grind Machine by those hubstacks with one hand while you pull the string with your throw hand and start the yoyo spinning while you are still holding it. Itís sort of like spinning a top. From there, you can transition into all the regular yoyo tricks you want to do, after youíve master the pull start. Itís a whole new type of yoyoing that youíll have to master.

The Grind Machine is a non-responsive yoyo, also sometimes called unresponsive. That means that it doesn't wake up when you throw a sleeper. The only way to wake it back up is by doing a bind trick, so keep that in mind! If your kid points out this yoyo and asks you to buy it for him, ask him which type of bind he uses to wake up a nonresponsive yoyo. If he answers, "Huh? What's a bind?" then don't buy him this yoyo. If you try to tell us it is "broken" and it won't wake up, we're just going to roll our eyes and point you back to this paragraph.

This yoyo uses a larger type C bearing, which is typically reserved for use in advanced yoyos that are often non-responsive like this one. And not just any bearing. It uses the SPEC bearing from Central Bearing Co. (As far as we can tell, SPEC is just a name they use and doesnít actually stand for anything.) The yoyo weighs approximately 63 grams. It uses a silicone response system, which is pretty much the standard for non-responsive yoyos.

So why is it a Grind Machine? Because itís awesome at doing grind tricks. A grind trick is basically where you make the yoyo sleep and sort of Walk the Dog against your arm, hand or finger. Itís hard to learn, but oh-so-impressive to spectators when you finally master it.

But wait! Plastic yoyos donít grind very well, do they? In this case, yes! Hereís why. Unlike some plastic yoyos that slow down too quickly from friction when it sleeps against your skin, you get less friction with this yoyo. When you pick up a Grind Machine and look at the rim and interior gap of the yoyo, youíll see that YoyoFactory has given the plastic a weird kind of surface treatment. Itís not perfectly smooth, but itís super slippery. So thereís less friction when you are sleeping it against your skin.

Here is what else youíll notice when you look closely at this yoyo. It has a plastic ring on the outside which gives the yoyo additional rim weight and allows it to spin much longer than many plastic yoyos because of the physics of adding weight at the outside of a spinning object to lengthen the spin time. Strangely though, the Grind Machine isnít actually a great yoyo for outside thumb grinds, where you grind the yoyo against your thumb on the outside edge of the yoyo. Thatís because the hubstacks and the plastic ring take up a lot of room and donít allow your thumb to easily fit on the outside. But itís great for inside thumb grinds (inner ring grinds) and all the rest of the grind tricks that you typically do on the interior surface.

Not the grinding yoyo youíre looking for? See our entire section of Grinding Yoyos or check out the Freehand 5A Yoyos section.

If you are looking for a long sleeping yoyo with hubstacks that can grind, but you don't want to pay the high metal price, you can stop right now. The Grind Machine is the yo yo for you.

    DON’T BUY THIS YOYO! I had a annoying vibration right out of the box, and it took me a few hours of uninterrupted freetime to fix it. To say this is horrible wouldn’t give it enough degredation! Overall, STAY AWAY FROM THIS PIECE OF JUNK!

    This yoyo is a great yoyo and the hubs are really fun.
    -cons:
    feels a little weird on your hand
    -the price should get a little lower like around $15-$25
    -noisy
    Now the good stuff:
    -sleep time
    -hubstacks
    -tricks
    -1A play (basically same as string tricks)
    -design

    I have had this yoyo for about 4 months now and by god its still goin strong! This yoyo is probably one of the highest quality plastic yoyos out there(aside ffrom ones such as the pro star and north star.) just a quick look on the internals that the website may not have looked at its a plastic body with a slight h shape to it, size c bearings and silicone response. for some highs and lows. Highs: long sleep, bout a min or so, great shape and feel. some lows however are: like with any hubstack yoyo getting the berring out is a chlenge, and somthing ironic is the grinds. this yoyo SUCKS for grinds and idk why they didnt just name it the hub machine:) All and all this is a very good yoyo for intermediat to advanced players and has my seal of aproval by a long shot. TO ALL YOU NEWBIES WHO DONT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT YOYOS, DONT GET THIS YOYO. IT IS VERY UNRESPONSIVE AND YOYOPLAY(no i dont work for them) OR ANYONE ELSE WHO CAN ACTUALLY YOYO DOESNT WANT YOUR CRAP ABOUT HOW U HAV TO LOOP IT 10000000 TIMES OR ITS BROKEN BECAUSE ITS AN UNRESPONSIVE.

    I’m 8 and I think this yoyo is pretty good. My Dad says it’s out of balance. That is why it just tumbles at the bottom and won’t come back up sometimes.

    This yo yo was pretty good at first, but it has so many problems. Take my word for it. I’m really good at yo yo and my friend who is a pro had problems with this yo yo too. It doesn’t spin that long, the weight isnt balanced right(it falls to one side), and it makes a loud screeching noise sometimes.
    Save your money for a better yo yo. Yo-yo Factory is good, but this yo yo isn’t!

    This is a great yoyo. I’ve had mine for a week now and I can’t put it down. The hubstacks are amazing but it’s not as good at grinds as they make it seem. I also have a G5 but I use this more. There may be better yoyos out there but for you can’t beat this for yoyos under $50. If you’re unsure of what low-priced unresponsive yoyo to get buy this. :)

    GM is really good for $30... But, sometimes dies out when grinding. Other than that it’s a really good yoyo... Hubstacks work perfect, sleeps for 1 min 30 sec, and can do any trick. Really good yoyo.

    i love this thing... it is amazingly priced, great grinds, and decent string tricks. if you are getting it for the hubstacks, be warned, they are not as good as an 888 (obviously) but they certaintly get the job done. smooth, stable, unresponsive, and cheap, a great alternative to a legacy or chaser by yyj. certaintly better grinding than most plastics
