The Yomega Fireball is the yo-yo that started a revolution in play with its transaxle system.
A special axle sleeve reduces friction and increases spin, allowing the player to progress to complex tricks that were once impossible with traditional fixed axle yo-yos.
A beginner to intermediate play level yo-yo, the Fireball is a staple for players across the world.

What we think:
The Fireball is an absolute classic. It's been around for over 25 years, but hit the big time during the enormous Bandai Hyper Yo-Yo boom of the late 90's.
At the time of inception, it's transaxle system was unique - prior to this, yo-yo string was looped directly around the axle of the yo-yo (hence the term fixed axle), this caused high friction and so the sleep times were fairly short, making some of the more complex tricks more difficult. The nylon bearing within the Fireball however (referred to as a transaxle) allows the yo-yo to sleep easily and with minimal friction, which at the time allowed for record breaking spins.
Skip forward 15 years and we are now in the age of ball-bearing yo-yos with infinitely long sleep times, however the Fireball has still remained a staple for beginner to intermediate players. It's narrow, more traditional shape, makes it comfortable for beginners - and the transaxle system and starburst response allows for sleep time to master the basic to intermediate level tricks, while still being tug responsive.
This yo-yo is also still one of the most popular to learn looping style tricks on - in fact many professional players use modified versions of the Fireball to compete at the World Championships to this day! Forever cementing the Fireball as a cornerstone of yo-yoing.
