The King Yo Star PAX is the latest release from the Canadian-based company. Designed by owner Jeremy McKay, this organic, casual throw is a great addition to any collection.
The King Yo Star PAX plays light and floaty and fast, and has a great, late-90s throwback feel. The larger, organic shape has just a slight taper towards the gap, nodding at modern design while still giving us that fat, round, almost Coke-can profile. The King Yo Star PAX is a zippy yoyo, and the large bell-shaped halves produce a pleasant ringing sound while playing that adds to the overall “laid back” feel. PAX, of course, means “peace” in Latin, and this yoyo is definitely appropriately named. The inner cup features a dimpled area that helps with fingerspins but let’s be honest here…you’re gonna be working on goofy kickflip tricks, not trying to suss out the latest horizontal combos. It’s great for kickflips, by the way.
Available in various splash colors, the anodizing is expectedly well-done. The colors are bright and vibrant and the finish quality is great. The King Yo Star PAX logo is engraved on the rim of both halves, leaving the large cup area blank so that you can truly enjoy the anodizing. The overall design is really very simple, which is always welcome.
The King Yo Star PAX retails for only $65. It’s a casual price for a great casual throw, and if you like something organic-shaped and fun, the PAX is a great option.
