Impressive performance, smooth and comfortable curved shape with undercut inner profile to reduce center weight.
When the YoYoFactory team started putting together ideas for the Avant Garde yo-yo, they decided to head in a completely new direction with yo-yo design. Rather than focusing solely on outside weight distribution and new angular shapes, the design focused on a simple curved shape and a new method of removing center weight. The result is one of the most unique looking and unique playing yo-yos they have ever created. The Avant Garde is by far one of the most comfortable yo-yos in your hand and one of the most unique playing experiences modern yo-yos have to offer.
Note: This is the original (version 1) of the Avant-Garde by YoYoFactory.
***For Intermediate/Advanced players, this is a "non-responsive" yo-yo, you must be able to perform a "bind return" in order to make this yoyo return to your hand.
