The Fireball by Yomega is a yo-yo first released in 1989. It was also licensed to Bandai for the Hyper Yo-Yo line in the late 1990s. 

Description

Released five years after the original Yo-yo with a Brain, the Fireball featured a transaxle, a plastic sleeve made of teflon placed over the yo-yo's metal axle. The sleeve also has a groove where the string could be attached. This component allowed the yo-yo to spin three times longer than yo-yos that have a fixed axle, thus giving players a bit more time to complete advanced tricks.

The Fireball also became a very popular yo-yo for looping, especially during the yo-yo boom of the 1990s, and was even released in the Japanese Hyper Yo-Yo line. Some 2A players modify their Fireball yo-yos for professional-level 2A looping play. It was also popular for promotions, ranging from player teams to yo-yo retailers (such as Infinite Illusions) and even contests.

Even to this day, it is one of Yomega's flagship yo-yos, alongside the Brain and the roller bearing-equipped Raider.

Trivia
