To be clear, is this yoyofactoryben's new account?

Oh, and I see Ben still has his account. Should only personal messages to Ben, specifically, be directed to "yoyofactoryben," and all YoYoFactory-related questions (customer service and otherwise) be directed to "YoYoFactory?"

Correct.

Personal messages do not provide the searchable information to ensure things like returned can be tracked, for example when 'SexyBlue234Z' asks 'where is my yo-yo i sent 2 days ago'? It is hard to match that up with the fast 201 with the dog hair wrapped inside the bearing that has arrived in the mail here. So for better service all round we are directing people to email or to the contact form at http://www.yoyofactory.com/contact/index.php rather than personal message.

Personal messages to be can still be directed to yoyofactoryben via PM.

I have asked this question a few times without any answers.

Will you release the offstring wings by themselves? The pocket change plus offstring wings is a pretty good yoyo. Please sell the wings by themselves in multiple colors, and do it before the fiesta comes out....pretty please.

Any changes planned for the spacer-bearing setup in YYF plastics? I have seen so many where the spacers are stuck in the inner race of the bearing. Some come like that from the factory. I have had to use a vise and a punch to remove a few.  

This tight tolerance cause quite  few deformed spacers that lead to vibe, wobble etc. I have seen one jammed so tight the yo-yo is basically responsive because the outer flange of the spacer contacts the outer race of the bearing.

I know many of these issues are caused by users but it seems like a delicate set-up for lower priced yo-yos aimed at youngsters

^The point of the tight fit is presumably to avoid they typical "parts explosion" that many people have problems with.

The 2nd half of "how to be a world champion" is on the countdown blog.
You'll be seeing a lot more of me in the future on the new blog :).

The grooves in the primo and the new run of superstars needs to go, they just look awful, a good bead blast is the only way to go (plus it looks much better than a straight anodized finish)

Will there ever be a run of solid color slim pad Genesis's? Maybe even two tone (blue/green)?

Yes. I file down my spacers just enough to make the bearing removable. I think this was causing vibe issues. My original red protostar is so smooth now...

not on the cards.

Enjoy the fiesta

The grooves in the primo and the new run of superstars needs to go,

If you think it looks awful you dont need to buy it. They will both be coming with a flat finish.

...They made a slim pad Genesis? Still large bearing, right?
Want.

Correct. The last run and next coming run are all made this way.


when will production of loop 900s begin?

Still tuning the final parts. The technology is proven, we just need to get it all right, run it through some final testing and the initial run will be a limited release made in the USA.
