Have you ever purchased a product and wondered if it was going to hold up to your usage? Cell phones come to mind, some of them feel so cheap I’d be afraid to put it in my pocket. Then there are some things you pick up and it just feels right, nice and solid. Craftsman Tools come to mind, they just feel good. I’ve always considered Dif-e-Yo products to be the Craftsman Tools of the yo-yo world.
Dif-e-Yo Bone Chip
When you hold a Dif-e-Yo in the palm of your hand it just feels right. Constructed in the USA, high quality Aluminum, it’s solid, regardless of the model.
Why are Dif-e-Yo’s so solid? A huge axl helps, simplistically yet well designed, and the focus on playability vs aesthetics. Also each yo-yo is tested by the owner, Frank Dif-e-Yo, prior to shipping to retailers. My only wish for Dif-e-Yo product line is Silicone. I wish they would move to a more modern style response, thin groove, silicone response. I have become a silicone lover. The consistency of silicone is something I haven’t been able to get from other responses.
Let’s hope more companies step up to the plate and create products that feel the way they should, solid. Dif-e-Yo has set the bar high, but I’m sure there are others who can keep pushing it higher.
