Paulo Bueno has spent the last 5 years patiently developing his skills and quietly becoming one of the most dominant yoyo players in the world. Over the past two years, Paulo has taken 1st in the highly competitive Bay Area Classic, Brazilian National Championships, and nearly taking out World Champion Gentry Stein at the 2016 EYYC competition. For 2017, YoYoFactory wanted to make sure that Paolo had everything he needed to be ready for a big year of competitions. Enter the Paolista. Paolo's signature model is focused on consistency, durability, and pure performance. The thick rim offers sustainability through long combos, the shape is as comfortable in the hand as it is on the string, and the gap has been brought in ever so slightly so that binds are tight. This is the refined competition yoyo, designed for Paolo.
