The Yoyo Factory’s Alta is the new signature yoyo of Paolo Bueno, well known for his 2016 1A championship at the Bay Area Classic. The Alta yoyo is an upgrade of Paolo’s original Paolista to a premium competition yoyo.
Similar to the Paolista yoyo in size, but design changes made the Alta a must have yoyo for technical string tricks. The Alta has stainless steel rims bonded to its aluminum body pushing weight to the outside. This design change created stability in the Alta to power through long technical strings tricks. Its outside weight keeps the Alta yoyo playing fast through technical combinations with long spin times.
The step straight body increased the catch zone and spread the weight into the rims. If you’re looking for a premium competition level yoyo that plays fast for string tricks and off axis play, try Yoyo Factory’s Alta.
The Alta yoyo is an unresponsive yoyo and is for the advanced player. You must know how to perform a bind to return the yoyo to your hand.
