This early Fireball is an interesting piece of yo-yo history. Yomega's first transaxle yo-yo was the "Outrageous" released in the mid to late 1980s. The "Outrageous" was later rebranded as the "Fireball" in late 1991, early 1992. The model in this exhibit is the first version of that rebranding. Came with its original clear, hard plastic display box and instruction booklet. Side cap logo has a solid black background overprinted with gold text and design. Clear body halves. The side cap has printed in gold the following text, left to right, top to bottom:

"Yomega High-Performance YoYos
Fireball Pat. No. 4,895,547 Fall River, Mass."

The Fireball is still being made today, although the side cap design and the manufacturing of the body itself has changed over the years. It still uses a plastic transaxle that is slid over the axle rod. This model was great for looping and string tricks; it was also very popular in Japan.
