What does a matte finish do on a yoyo?


#1

So I saw the TP Shake and saw the matte black option. What does matte finish do for the yoyo?

Usually it’s from being blasted pre-anodizing to get the matte finish which makes it better for grind tricks and also looks better IMO.

Even if you’re not trying to grind, it helps if you make incidental contact with your hand or finger to keep the yoyo on track. Polished yoyos tend to take off like jumping beans when they touch skin.
