The Rapid Light is the latest yoyo release from Canada-based King Yo Star. The Rapid Light is a re-shaped, all-aluminum version of their recent bi-metal release, the Rapid.
The Rapid Light is an aluminum yoyo, designed as a more budget-friendly version of the bi-metal Rapid. It’s fast and plays light on the string, and has quickly become a favorite of the King Yo Star team. It’s a great all-around player, handling 1A, 3A, and 5A equally well, and it’s a great choice for a budget 5A competition yoyo. The flat rims give this yoyo a nice, wide feel that helps with 5A catches. If you’re a fan of organic shapes but love the feel of flat rims, the King Yo Star Rapid Light is a great choice! The added step in the yoyo’s gap gives this model a really light response, making it a great choice for extra complicated tech that requires a lot of string layers in the gap.
The fit and finish on the King Yo Star Rapid light are excellent for a budget yoyo. Available in solid colors or two-tone splashes, the Rapid Light has quality anodizing and comes in a variety of colorways that offer something for all tastes. The inner hub is identical to the original Rapid, give both models a cohesive “family” look. Whether on a shelf or on the string, the Rapid Light is a good looking yoyo.
The King Yo Star Rapid Light retails for only $55, which seems to be the sweet spot for budget metal releases these days. The Rapid Light is a great performer in this price range!
