The Yoyofficer Shift is the second bi-metal release from this small Chinese company, and a fantastic throw for the price. With a wide catch zone and a comfortable, semi-organic body shape, the Shift is fun and comfortable throw with all the power you need.
The YoYofficer Shift is small and light, but brings a ton of play value to its price range. The soft v-shaped body has a huge catch zone, enough to really facilitate even the riskiest horizontal tricks with ease. The overwhelming majority of the Shift’s weight is in the steel rims, which gives it a solid feel and powerful spin that you wouldn’t expect from something that only weighs in at 63 grams. The slightly rounded rims make the Shift a comfortable throw…the profile is one of the most ergonomic and friendly of the entire YoYofficer line. The Shift ships with a grooved centering bearing that really helps maximize the spin time of the bi-metal design. It’s become cliché to say that any yoyo has long spin times and plenty of stability, but only because modern yoyo design has been dialed in to the point where every reputable company has figured it out. And YoYofficer is definitely a reputable yoyo company, and the Shift definitely has plenty of spin time and stability.
Available in solid colors with a simple engraving, the YoYofficer Shift keeps things classy with an understated look. The fit of the rims to the body is smooth and clean, the matte finish on the yoyo feels wonderful, and the overall look of the yoyo is elegant and simple. Small touches like the rounded transition to the flat cup, the beveled edge of the rim where the aluminum meets the steel, and the tiny flat detail that transitions the rim into the gap give the Shift a depth of design that becomes more enjoyable the more you look at it.
The YoYofficer Shift retails for just $75, making it an incredible deal for players looking to add a bi-metal yoyo to their collection. It’s a solid, simple design with a ton of play value at a great price…what more could you ask for?
