The Space Cadet by YoyoFactory is the next step in modern yoyo technology for horizontal finger spins. The Space Cadet yoyo utilizes a unique bowl design that guides your finger to the exact placement needed to keep a long finger spin! Once your finger settles into position in the bowl of the Space Cadet, the yoyo will spin horizontally for crazy long spin times.
If you take a closer look at the center of the hub, you’ll see a specially designed depression. This depression positions your nail in the center for long lasting horizontal finger spins. The smooth processed finish reduces friction for finger spins, too.
Another strong design element on the Space Cadet is the steel rims combined with a precision-machined aluminum body, giving it stability, powerful throws and maximum playability. This is a competition level yoyo. It's a fast yoyo that’s easy to maneuver through combinations with the addition of steel weight ring, keeping weight distributed for long spin times.
Bimetal design means that each half is made of two different metals -- aluminum and steel. Steel is too heavy to make an entire yoyo out of, because they it wouldn't play right. But if you put a steel ring on an aluminum yoyo, you get a heavier weight near the outside edge of the yoyo. The physics of a spinning yoyo means that putting the weight on the outside edge like that will give the yoyo a lot of gyroscopic stability and additional spin time. But since the yoyo is still mostly aluminum, the overall weight of the yoyo is still reasonable, so it will still play well for complicated tricks.
The comfortable shape and the long-spinning Center Trac bearing make the Space Cadet a stand-out design. It feels good in the hand and the bi-metal design gives a light feeling, stable yoyo. This is a smooth playing yoyo.
The Space Cadet is an unresponsive yoyo. A bind is required to wake yoyo. This means if you are a beginner it’s likely not the yoyo for you, YET!
