The YoyoFactory Monster is Back!


#1

YoyoFactory is going to release some new Monsters in limited quantity pretty soon. It will get a new look. Great news huh? I can get a Monster to match my Cyborg now. :slight_smile:

I was just thinking of this yoyo the other day (sold it long ago)! Love how much control you feel, combined with that float.


#3

I acquired the John Chow version a few months ago, in the YoyoExpert colors, that I was desperately trying to track down. I was so excited when I got it. It’s a great throw, for sure.

This is the Monster stacked up against the recently released Paul Kerbel signature, Horizon:

When I asked them on ask fm about the MONSTER and revisiting the Super G, they told me that the Super G faded in to Shutter which might be why we never saw it improved besides 7075… and that they are rereleasing it along with the MONSTER.

I wish the Monster is cheaper now. To me, it honestly looks like more machining goes into the Horizon than the monster.


#5

It just looks like an extra wide equilateral


#6

I have a super wide I got from the rerelease of the mystery bag. Is there a big difference between the monster and super wide. I play the super wide every once in awhile for something different. I don’t know if I need a monster. Unless you guys say it’s awesome.


#7

Monster is 10x better in my opinion. I didn’t like my superwide too much, but I love playing with a monster whenever I get the chance.


#8

Very interesting. I may have to pick one up if it’s not to spendy.


#9

I lovelovelove wide throws. The monster is by far my favorite. The superwide being my least


#10

I’d like to see John Chow make a comeback with the Monster. He should be back soon. :slight_smile:


#11

I’ll wait and see if they are mass produced in China or not. That new graphic does look good though!


#12

Who cares it doesn’t have the dumb engraving around the edge of the cup.


#13

The YYF Monster is my al time favourite yoyo, i already own 2 and i ll probably grab 2 more! i need that solid blue and one splashed!

release date?


#14

Compared to the Superwide is the Monster wider or narrower? Is it lighter or heaver? Does it spin longer?


#15

The monster looks like it’s made of higher quality aluminum.


#16

I’m going to get a Monster vs. Superwide comparison photo posted up soon. It would be interesting to take a look at them side-by-side. It can be done with photos from the store, but those will not be to scale. So, I prefer to place them side by side and get a shot that way.

I’m guessing more people have tried the Superwide than the Monster. It’s a different price range, and I think I’ve seen more Superwides around. :-\


#17

The monster plays 100 times better than the Superwide. The Superwide is a yoyo for having fun an the monster is a competition yoyo (it s also a fun yoyo by the way), spins longer and more stable.


#18

Here are a few comparison shots. Diameter appears to be the same, so I’ll show you the rest.

The Monster appears to be taller by literally a hair.

The pictures sure makes the physical difference clear.


#20

Is there a date when the revision of the Monster will be coming? I keep debating on picking up the blue one, even though I don’t like the colorway.
