The Sengoku Nobunaga is the best V shaped yoyo I have ever owned. That being said I own a YoyoJam Next Level which in my opinion, underperforms for it’s price tag and for being bi-metal. I have also own a OneDrop Gradient which may be a combination between V and H.
Here are my yoyo list and and my top 5 yoyo list to show where the Nobunaga stands with all my yoyos overall, despite already being crowned the best V shape in my opinion.
- YoyoFactory Space Cowboy
- YoyoFactory Supernova 6061
- Sengoku Nobunaga
- Tropic Spins Shipwreck
- OneDrop Code 1

I’ve never liked the V shape mostly due to what I’ve used and owned. The Sengoku Nobunaga really changed that aspect of my mind and brought my thoughts on V shaped yoyos back to life.
Though the review I am about to write has both the Space Cowboy and Nobunaga being different shapes and specifications, I am going to write the review anyways.
First off, the Nobunaga is the smoothest V shaped yoyos I’ve used and own, it is not nearly as smooth as the Space Cowboy, highly probable due to the shape. H shapes like the Space Cowboy tend to play smoother than V shaped yoyos.
At first, my initial thoughts were the Space Cowboy and Nobunaga were identical in speed. However after throwing both again and again, swapping between the two and trying to find differences, the Nobunaga of course is a little bit faster but not so much that it is easy to differentiate. Due to the Nobunaga’s V shaped design, it of course would tend to be faster.
Though the Nobunaga may be smaller in shape than most mid-size, I wouldn’t completely call it off as a under-sized. It is David and Goliath when comparing the YoyoFactory DV888 to the Sengoku Nobunaga.
