Plastic yoyos that play at a competition level

Replay Pro is the unresponsive ver. of the Replay.

Replay Pro is $16, the Replay is $15.

Personally I think the Wedge & Protostar (& Replay Pro if it’s your taste) are super competitive plastics.
All come from World Champs, so you KNOW it’s good haha


I have all three of those, and for $20 they are really good values, but I would never grab one for competition use (instead of a good metal yoyo), no matter what their contest record is in the hands of world champions. But that’s just me.

Do you have any delrin yo-yos? Those are closer in performance to metal. I personally don’t really like plastic or wood yo-yos either, they lack the density and consistency of metal… but delrin is in the ballpark at least. And it has a nice hand feel.


I have yet to try one.

No Delrin yoyos. But I have the POM Draupnir and the machined PC iCEBERG, both of which perform very much like bimetals, and I would grab one of them before any of the budget plastics for competition any day. But then again, they are much more expensive…

Those are bimaterial though, kind of a different beast. Not really “plastic” at that point, are they?

Delrin Skyva is probably the easiest one to grab at $36, but I am a big fan of the Zeekio (rebranded Yoyoempire) delrins as well.


Okay, sure. They are hybrids. Their primary material is plastic. I didn’t think that a metal rim disqualified them from being in the plastics family, or from being considered a “competition plastic throw”. Semantics maybe?

I saw a delrin yoyo made by Yoyoempire. It looked exactly like the YYF Wedge.

Don’t forget the ART Banger!

Haven’t played one, but it has a nice looking shape.

The replay pro comes with both unresponsive
And responsive accessories right??

No. It comes only unresponsive.


Aah, I was watching a kind of dated yoyo review and they said it did.

The regular Replay is responsive.


Personally I’d put up a little fence and keep injection-molded plastics on one side, and plastics turned on a lathe on the other side.

As far as competition plastics go, I just had a breakthrough. The best is probably the Loop 2020.

For 2A, most are plastic. Most 4A yoyos are plastic or delrin. 3A can be anything, and 1A can be anything.

Yeah, true! Did you mean 1/3/5a in your original post?

I was referring to 1A.

Anyhow, here’s another candidate:

Plastic with a weight ring, but much cheaper than an iCEBERG.


Yoyorecreation New Diffusion. Best plastic I have played.


New diffusion is awesome, but still, after all this time, I’d go with the protostar. I can’t say enough good things about it, it’s so good. I even prefer it over the fingerspin north star which is a great yoyo itself. It is one I can say could absolutely qualify as a competition plastic without any ifs or buts.
