dose any one know where to get the aoda yoyos in the us


#2

I don´t think that they are sold in US because all(IDK if all of them) are bootlegs, so they cant be sold on US because they brake patents.


#3

No… I’m pretty sure you can buy one… I can’t remember the name… but it’s a yoyoz.uk?? or something… they sell it. It’s the green and orange one, shaped like a speeder.


#4

you can get them but you have to buy it from a store based in another country.


#5

Eoropian stores can sell bootleg aodas, I wont mention the yoyo stores but just google search ¨europian  yoyo store¨.

This is the link to some picture and info of some Aoda yoyos.

I would get the original because its the original and that product was made with the hard work of the yoyo company.


#6

You can always find them on ebay


#7

You can link them because YYE doesn’t nor ever will sell bootleg yoyo’s.

i like bootleg yoyos the cheap and fun


#9

EURO-YO.COM thats the best place. Aoda an dAUldey


#10

I second to that. In fact, i have few aoda and auldey bootleg in my collection.
They fun to mess around with.

How does Aoda manage to sell an ¨888¨(bootleg), at 45$ when the original cost 90$? What extremly bad quality materials do they use?


#12

AZN LABOR! Not being racist… ;D

You can get an 888 bootleg for $20 shipped free worldwide…from a site. They’re less than $9 retail in China. An Aoda Virus is $18, an L3 is $23. Those Dancing Pearls on YoYoSam are less than $9.

There’s a high mark up on metal yo-yos and relatively low setup cost, small quantities are viable when machining, which is why small shops and machinists, or people with some time and a wad of cash can compete in the market.

You aren’t paying for expensive materials when you buy an aluminum yo-yo.
You’re getting less than $4 worth of aluminum. Check the prices.

You can purchase an entire aluminum bicycle for as much as a boutique yo-yo costs. Does that make sense?


#14

Yes, because you’re buying the design. Does it make sense that video games cost less than 5 cents to make but it’s sold for $60? Yes, because you’re paying for the work that went into it.


#15

You’re paying for the lack of competition.
R&D costs for a yo-yo aren’t in the same universe as a large game project or pharmaceuticals.

You don’t think that bike had to be designed, made, assembled, tested, shipped, marketed?
