Onestar vs. Champions Edition Onestar


#1

I am aware that these are the same yoyo. Does the CT bearing affect play? If so how. Is the CT a good bearing? How does the yoyo play differently with a normal SPEC opposed to a CT?


#2

I like the shape of the CT bearing. It has wings on each side to stop the string contacting the response area but the string doesn’t bunch up like a koncave.


#3

The CT barely makes a difference.

You should really look into a bearing such as the twisted trifecta.


#4

Also what is it made out of?


#5

CT bearing is made of stainless steel I believe.

I much prefer CT bearings to regular flat bearings. Shame the Champions Collection OneStars only come in two unappealing colours with ugly side cap art. The WBD OneStar is a good option if you like black.


#6

The black OneStar does look nice. But what does WBD mean?


#7

I don’t know but it is the Japan version


#8

WBD stands for Word, Bar, Dots. It’s pretty much what’s on the yoyo: the YYF logo in words, the YYF bar logo and the YYF dot logo.

Thanks for that info!! :wink:


#10

@Yuki thanks for enlightening us.

But how does a CT affect the play of this yoyo.


#11

CTs give the yoyo a slightly longer spin time, helps when your doing combos…


#12

But how does CT version play vs. flat bearing version? Also what is this yoyo made out of?


#13

The CT bearing makes it spin longer which helps with combos and the yoyo is made of celcon


#14

Lets just clear things up.

Normal OneStar: nice, cheap plastic yoyo,

Champions Collection OneStar: FABULOUS ZEBRA HEAVEN WITH SPRINKLES AND RAINBOWS.

Just had to get that across.


#15

With the CT bearing, it will spin longer on straight throws IF you’re playing cleanly too. Typical center-trak stuff. I have no issue with flat bearings.

The yoyo is made out of celcon, which is like an injection molded delrin. They are similar but different.

One difference I found in our stores, it seems Champion collection(pink one) has more problems with breaking bearing seat. But it can be just coincidence.


#17

So which plays better?


(Bína) #18

In stock form, Champions edition plays better. If you get concave or CT for standard, they play same.

To confuse you guys even more, B-grades released at EYYC plays even ebtter and are slightly different in specs :slight_smile:


#19

It’s probably due to the specs being off a bit that made them have to label them as B-grades.

I’ve played a released OneStar and a Champions Edition. I think the pre-release one I got at BAC 2012 outplays both of those. Maybe it’s specs are a touch off as well? When were these EYYC B-grades sold? Was this 2012 or 2013? I’m wondering if they were part of the pre-release batch as well.

What’s a B-grade?
