In July 2013, YoTricks received the sad news that the Luminator yoyo they had used to teach most of their tricks on YoTricks.com was being discontinued. After a sufficient period of mourning, and lots of coffee cake, they contacted YoYoFactory in the hope that they could replace the Luminator, producing a new yoyo with the same winning qualities as the Luminator. Specifically, they wanted a yoyo that was inexpensive, played great and easy with no modifications, but could also be modified to handle more difficult Unresponsive Tricks.
With their combined knowledge and vision, YoTricks.com and YoYoFactory produced The Sage. Like the Luminator before it, the Sage Classic Yoyo is easy to pick up and play. It comes with a thin bearing that plays very responsive and can sleep for 30-45 seconds with a good throw. Unlike the Luminator, however, the Sage has a very modern design, being patterned after the legendary Protostar yoyo – often considered one of the best plastic yoyos ever made. This basic Protostar design was simplified for The Sage, offering a less expensive yoyo that still has many of the benefits of the Protostar’s shape. It is this wide flared design that helps The Sage vastly outperform the Luminator when it comes to learning String Tricks, especially when getting into more advanced play.
