Kilter is one of the most affordable metal yoyos on the market, but that doesn't make it any less professional.

When we started yoyoing around the year 2002, a metal yo-yo would cost around 3000 crowns and most definitely it would be a piece of trash. As time passed, the quality of the yo-yos went up and the price went down. But for a long time you couldn’t get a decent yo-yo for less than 2000 crowns. Eventually Duncan came out with a great yoyo that cost 1000 crowns and everyone thought that that’s as far as the yo-yo manufacturers can go. At least that was the case until YOYOFFICER came with KILTER. A professional metal yo-yo of an average size with extra gear only for 600 (!!!) crowns!
It came out in the winter of 2013 and our guess is that it will become one of the most popular yo-yos of all time. Finally you can get a yo-yo similar to those that the best yo-yoers are using, with only one difference - the price. A metal yoyo that costs almost the same as a plastic yo-yo! You will even get a CenterTrack bearing in the set, which until now was used solely with luxurious yo-yos. The response system composes of classic 19mm pads.
And how does it run? Briefly - great! Kilter has a very similar (maybe even too similar!) shape to the Yoyofactory Superstar. That means a great weight distribution towards the rims. That results in a bigger stability and a longer sleeper. Kilter is a little smaller than the Superstar, but that doesn’t do it any harm. It’s actually better for a lot of people, because the yo-yo can jump through a way smaller space in the string and because of its smaller size, you can tangle it way more. It’s a very thought-through yo-yo that doesn’t have the usual flaws of cheaper models. It’s not too light, nor too heavy. It doesn’t fly around too much. It’s just the perfect combination of everything.
You can get it in seven different colors and you will find a very exact laser sign “KILTER” inside every yo-yo.
