We are so excited to share with you the completion of the original innovative series 'Project Red Alert' by YoYoFactory. The original 9th design was so converted it was never released.... This yoyo takes the original design one step further, enhanced by the technology of Kuyos and his company YoYoFormula. The triple bearing design offers a new dimension. On the throw you will hear the dragon RAW and traditional tricks are not only possible but enhanced by the reduced friction of the 'Dragon caps'. Take it off axis and this feature is highlighted even more.
The full cover stack made from machined Delrin (POM) runs from the response area to the rim edge. The metal-like resin is designed to reduce friction. These “Dragon caps” create a full frictionless surface and will not interrupt play, making the YoyoFactory NINE Dragons the yoyo to try.
Wait, there’s more to this resin shell. It spins separately from the body of the yoyo. So you can actually catch or engage with the yoyo while it is still spinning. This opens the door for a ton of new yoyo tricks.
Want to land some new tricks or take your play to a new level? This is the yoyo for you. YoyoFactory NINE Dragons Yoyo is an unresponsive yoyo, and you will need to know how to bind to return the yoyo to your hand.

Q. How do I wind up the NINE dragons?
A. Hold the body and shell together in the same hand to prevent rotation and
wind like a normal yoyo. Quick starts are more difficult but still possible.
Q. My NINE dragons vibrates, is that normal?
A. You have 3 different potentially spinning objects. There are strange
harmonics at play. To minimize the vibration, simply perform tricks. This is
not a designed to be thrown and NOT interacted with either by catching or
string play. Both of these activities negates vibration. Play with it and
its fine. Throw it and just watch and you have a science experiment.
Q. My NINE dragons makes noise. Is that normal?
A. Yes. There bearings and 2 large spinning caps make noise. Use a small
amount of lube to reduce spin. This may also reduce performance. The amount
of noise your yoyo makes will change as 3 bearings play in and change
throughout their life.
Q. One of my Dragon caps spins better than the other, is that normal?
A. Yes. It is just bearing life. You can de-assemble and re-assemble your
yoyo to make sure it is all together properly but with use, everything
typically evens out with time and use.
Q. If I throw it hard into the ground will it break?
A. Yes, and this is not covered by warranty. You can email email@example.com for access to spare parts.
Q.How do i adjust string tension?
A. The easiest way is to let the string hang free. Advanced ways include a
horizontal tornado bind or a sidewinder bind.
Q. Can I upgrade to a CT bearing? What about pads?
A. Yes! NINE dragons also accepts 19mm CBC pads.
Q. Can I use NINE dragons in competitions? Isn’t it unfair?
A. There are no rules currently prohibiting the use of NINE dragons. It may
be an unfair advantage and in the future rules may be changed. We are
actively promoting a 9A division to be run at select events around the
