The First Base was created to serve as an affordable top performance yo-yo for everyone from beginner to pro! It’s a full sized yo-yo with a really comfortable shape that fits nicely in the hand and has excellent stability on the string. The First Base is fitted with a slim bearing to excel at beginner tricks right out of the box and an optional size C bearing for more advanced tricks.
Recess wanted to keep the soul of the original Joyride while updating the design for optimal performance. They did away with the rounded h-shape profile of the original and went with a full organic design for the new model. It has a comfortable old school feel in the hand, but the bumped out response gap noticeably improves performance through more complex and off-plane tricks.
