Yomega Yo-Mods was a customizable yo-yo system introduced in April, 2012. The system included three different yo-yo models: the Pro Speed (dead response); the BX-2 (less response); and the G-R (responsive; normal yo-yo play). While all three yo-yos played great individually, the parts--such as the spacers, pads, and halves, all color-coded--were completely interchangeable among each model. For example, you could swap the return system pads from the G-R (green) to the Pro Speed (black) to make it more responsive. Put the spacers from the Pro Speed into the BX2 (blue) for a wider gap. This kind of flexibility let you easily customize the play and feel of the yo-yo to your own liking--assuming you bought all three models (or at least two of them) to swap parts. At an original retail price of $20 each, it probably became cost prohibitive for many kids.

The Yomega BX2 in the Yo-Mods system was 64 grams total weight making it 4 grams heavier than the G-R model. It came with an 8 ball size C ball bearing, medium grip response pads, medium gap spacers, and plastic rim-weighted halves with internal aluminum shells. This model was considered the happy medium between the G-R (lightest model) and the Pro Speed (heaviest model). If you enjoyed a traditional, classic yo-yo play with slightly short spin times, but also wanted to learn more complex trick and how to bind a yo-yo to have it return to your hand, this model was ideal. The unique "exploded parts" packaging view let you easily see the make-up of the yo-yo and what you were dealing with.

Original retail price: $20 US.
