How to Choose Yo-yos Part 1 - Axle Types
There are many types of yo-yos available but following is a quick guide to yo-yo axles. Many professional yo-yos allow players to unscrew the sides in case of knots or to change bearings. However, this take apart feature isn’t found on inexpensive yo-yos. So make sure that you have a yo-yo you can take apart before trying to take those sides off.
The three main types of yo-yo axles are wood, metal and ball bearings.
Wood axles are good for beginners and excellent on traditional looping tricks. Metal axles are found on inexpensive mass produced yo-yos. These tend to be yo-yos that you can’t take apart. They are lost cost and good beginner yo-yos for mastering basic tricks. Bearing yo-yos have a ball bearing on the axle which causes longer sleeping. This extra spin time allows players to create complex and intricate tricks. Many of these tricks are impossible using a wood or metal fixed axle yo-yo.
