YoYoFactory - Loop 1080
This yo-yo is Shu Takada, 2012 2A world champion's signature model.
The Loop 1080 is based on Shu Takada's favorite throw, the Loop 900. Using the 900 as a base, Takada reformed the design to improve its performance even further, making the 1080 one of the world's best looping yo-yos.
Like the Loop 900, the 1080 uses the popular nylon spacer raider, with a small plastic spacer and a metal bearing. This spacer is different from the one in the 900. Using YYF's adjustable wrench you can adjust the gap width. The internals are further improved, allowing the gap to open slightly during play, which gives you finer control and spin than a fixed gap width.
Takada and YoYoFactory worked closely together, piling improvements and prototypes upon one another until they had the ultimate looping yo-yo. With the adjustable gap and options for strings and lubricants, there are endless combinations for you to try. We especially recommend the 1080 if you don't feel confident with your looping skills, but want to improve. The Loop 1080 is clearly a looping masterpiece. Comes with a white/blue/black mixed color string.
The gap comes set at the narrowest setting. The adjustment key is the same bit as the one made for Loop 900.
