yes, but 4 in japanese sounds like ‘yo’ or ‘yon’ when spoken. I don’t speak japanese, this is just why 44 has been used to mean ‘yoyo’ in the past.
edit - from google: Four ( 4 ) is 四 (shi, pronounced “shee”). Because this word sounds like the Japanese word for death, the alternate pronunciation yon is also used – especially when talking about people.
I know from playing black jack all over the US is that 4 is definitely a superstitious number to most of the Asian players I’ve sat with. I was told when curiously asking, the sound and even kanji were similar. Some great memories of playing with skilled players and destroying deck after deck and all the body language to bad plays including superstitious numbers. Throwing arms up, head back, loud expletives, good times. Really good times along with profits and games, win win.
I got smacked down last year for posting screen shots in a topic. This was originally for my own use. I wanted a side-by-side comparison with the YYF Boss since both are pretty small. I have The Boss which is great and I am intrigued with this new yoyo as it seems pretty awesome!
