The Loop 720 Winter edition came in a clear body with milky white marble swirls throughout. It came standard with blue metal spacers installed and a set of red spacers for pure looping power.

Original retail price: $20 US.

-Red spacers are used when you want a narrow string gap. They provide strong response which helps you better control your loops and minimize spin time at the end of the string. This set is generally not used for string tricks. These spacers are the tallest of the sets. They also do not require that you add any lubrication to the bearing.

-Blue spacers are used when you want a medium string gap for just enough response for looping and just enough spin time to perform original string tricks like Around the World, Brain Twister, Walk the Dog, and Eiffel Tower.

-Green spacers are used when you want a wide enough string gap to provide for long sleep times while performing string tricks; they are generally not used for looping. Because the cup is lower on these spacers, it makes the yo-yo the least responsive compared to red and blue spacers. It is best to add lubrication to the bearing when using this set.

The Loop 720 uses a size K ball bearing axle and starburst response. It is a workhorse model in YoYoFactory's overall product line, being released in numerous special editions and colors while still using the basic design. Adding Shu Takada's name on the yo-yo is also a powerful marketing endorsement from a looping professional world champion. The string length used on this model--and many other looping yo-yos--has shortened considerably over the years making them easier and faster to loop. The string length on a stock Loop 720 is between 70-75 cm (about 2 feet 3 inches to 2 feet 5 inches).
