Problems with cracking and the rims falling off have been mentioned by several players. And most people do believe that the Jamboo is more a collector’s item than a true perform. When that is said, the Jamboo is not a really bad yoyo. The thing is that it consists of many individual parts and the wood is not completely “even”. Still, the yoyo is a beauty. It is a wonderful yoyo, but it probably won’t be your main player.

Addment: If you want to spend the value of a Jamboo, there are a lot of other good yoyos you can point your finger on, but if you want something special and new, get the jamboo.

Really? I havent heard of any reports of the metal rings falling off of the Jamboo, and I hang at a lot of forums…

Anyway, there are a lot of pieces, and several things can go wrong that I cant really list here. I suggest looking at this amazing review for more info:

To make sure this is known, they do not break easily, but the nuts slowly come unscrewed, causing it to fly into pieces when not screwed on tightly. I use silicone to keep the nuts in place.

ok thanks, any way if it flys apart you can put it back together right?
