After Shu Takada dominated the 2012 World Yo-Yo Contest with the Loop900, YoYoFactory worked with him on ways to improve the Loop900 design. The adjustment mechanism was improved and moved from being off centered to the very center of the yo-yo halve. The plastic spacers were resized and slightly re-designed and the weight and shape were very slightly altered. The result of all of these changes yielded an entirely new yo-yo that proved its worth by winning the USA National Yo-Yo Contest on production prototypes! Whether you are a top level 2A player looking for the best looping yo-yo or a beginner looking to take your looping skills to the next level, the Loop1080 has a setting for you.
Each Loop 1080 comes with a key that allows the user to adjust the string gap of the yo-yo to micrometer accuracy.
The adjustable gap YoYoFactory Loop yoyos have changed the way modern yo-yo players approach the looping style. No more complicated modifications to your yo-yos, no more intense maintenance schedule, all the Loop 1080 needs is a little bit of lubrication, a string, and the YYF adjustable key does the rest. The ‘secret’ behind all good looping yo-yos is in the string gap. Too small of a string gap and your yo-yos wont spin long enough and they will loop too low and fast. Too wide of a string gap and the response system will not work to its full potential, resulting in slippy looping yo-yos. With the Loop adjustable key mechanism, you get to decide the string gap with ultimate precision. No matter what string type/length you use, no matter what type of lubrication, no matter what you do to your Loop 1080, you get to choose the string gap that works best for you!
