With the new Surge yoyo, Yoyojam decided to see if it is possible to create a low cost plastic yoyo that plays as well as a metal yoyo. They went with two pieces of plastic on each side, which they accented with a color change. Why did they do it this way? It was all about adding weight, and putting at lot of that weight at the outside edges of the yoyo to improve spin time and stability. If you look at the weight, you'll notice that it's slightly heavier than the Dark Magic II, which has metal rings!
The Yoyojam Surge yoyo has a silicone response system, and uses a wide C bearing. That means -- you guessed it -- it's a non-responsive yoyo. Non-responsive or unresponsive means that when you throw a sleeper with this yoyo and tug on the string, it will not wake up. You'll need to learn to do a bind trick (a trick that throws a bunch of string into the gap of the spinning yoyo, forcing it to climb back up the string toward your hand). Yoing non-responsive lets you do all kinds of new school tricks like grinds, which are not really possible with a traditional yoyo that wakes up.
It's worth the effort to learn how to bind -- especially when you consider the low price of this yoyo. Try it, if you don't know how! This yoyo is so cheap that you should just add it to your cart and buy it RIGHT NOW! Find out for yourself how fun it is to play with, and impress your friends with the cool, bright plastic look.
