An original response yo-yo from YoYoFactory, Mercury comes with a metal bearing for long sleeps and string tricks. Different from the current lineup, Mercury has a round shape and a rather wide gap, making string tricks like elevator far easier. Hyper Yo-Yo's first model with a metal bearing, it should be easy for anyone to throw a long sleeper.

This is a Japan-only version of YoYoFactory's F.A.S.T. 201, rebranded for Bandai's Hyper Yo-Yo series. It's main characteristic is the F.A.S.T. response system (Free Active Star Burst), which makes changing the responsiveness of the yo-yo as easy as twisting a halve. You can easily find your favorite setting, or try different settings to practice a wider variety of tricks, from the tightest setting with a strong response for looping, to a looser setting for longer sleeps and string tricks. As a Hyper Yo-Yo, you can use it to attain Hyper Yo-Yo certification.
