Spinworkx Best of 2014

2015 is here and we have to say goodbye to 2014. With that, as always, we will take a look back at what were the most popular Kendamas & Yo-Yos from 2014. These are the items that all Kendama & Yo-Yo players chose for their weapon of choice and we were so excited to see which ones would remain from the Best of 2013 and which ones would be dethroned. So without further ado, here we present to you the Spinworkx Best of 2014 list!

So there you have it, the Best of 2014 list. As you can see, the FAST 201 and the Speedaholic is still reigning supreme in the Beginner and Entry level unresponsive plastic yo-yo categories. Tough to beat those yo-yos when they play great and come at a great price point.

However, a new entry is the sOMEThING Addiction which was the top Hybrid yo-yo for 2014. Great yo-yo that provides spinners with smooth and long-spinning performance. 

There is no surprise what was the best affordable metal from 2014. It was clearly the year of the Shutter, with Gentry winning US Nationals in 2013 and the World Yo-Yo Contest in 2014, the Shutter was the choice of many players. Not just those competing on stage, but players who wanted their first unresponsive metal yo-yo chose the Shutter as well. Awesome performance at an awesome price point. We cannot wait to see what 2015 has in store for the affordable metal market.

Now, the Barracuda and the Loop 1080 got promotions from 2013 to become the top yo-yos in their categories for 2014. They are great yo-yos and it is tough to argue with these choices. The high-end metal yo-yo category may be facing some tough competition from the affordable metals but we shall see what comes forth in 2015. Some contenders for 2015 would probably be the sOMEThING SLASHER and the YoYoFactory Space Cowboy. Maybe something newer will spring out, so it is going to be very exciting to see what 2015 has in store for the high-end metal yo-yo category!

There issn't much changes for the rest of the categories, with the yoyorecreation Aeronaut still reigning supreme for 4A and the accessories still mostly the same.

Before signing off, the Spinworkx store at Orchard Central and our webstore still have these yo-yos and products available. So if you feel like you are missing out on something, there is still time to pick them up!

Till our 'Best of 2015' list, keep Spinning and have a great 2015!
