The F.A.S.T. yo-yo has been designed by yo-yo professionals to make tricks easier to learn. It uses patented technology to allow the response and ease of use of the yo-yo to be set by the player...

I might be showing my age a bit, but I have to admit that I haven't picked up a yo-yo since the '80s. And boy, how they've changed.

The F.A.S.T 201 ball-bearing yo-yo is so simple to use and it's easy to perform impressive looking tricks with. Within seconds I was amazing the other staff here (and my self) by performing a very cool trick - although I have no idea how it works. I let go of the yo-yo and as it reached the end of the string it simply stayed there, spinning. Then with a quick jerk on the string it rose back up to my hand. While that might not be that impressive to anyone younger than 16, it was mightily impressive to me.

And that is part of the joy of this toy. How many times have you bought an item that states "just like the professionals use" and then realised that as you are not a professional you are going to have to put in many hours of practice to do anything impressive with it? This usually means that you tire of it quickly - usually before you've mastered anything with it.

Well, with this yo-yo you can perform simple tricks easily, which will encourage you to be more adventurous with it. But even better, there is a booklet included which tells you how to perform some very impressive looking tricks - and believe me they are not that difficult to perform.

If you have used a cheap kids yo-yo in the past then this is a bit like trading up from a Smart car to a Ferrari. Get your hands on one of these - they are fantastic.
