Are yo-yo legal

Our team is thinking about using yo-yo’s for expansion and is wondering if it is legal!

From my experience competing with them, I haven’t seen them get called out for it and this was 2 days ago.

If your talking about yo-yo string, then it needs to be thick enough. I don’t remember the exact minimum thickness off the top of my head but you can find it in the game manual.

The string of the yo-yo, might work if it is 1/8 to 1/4th of an inch, but the yo-yo itself won’t work unless it is made out of vex parts.


If the string is 1/8-1/4 inch thick and the spool part is made of vex parts or legal materials then yeah. I don’t think an actual store-bought yo-yo is legal though.

When someone asks a question, please don’t actually respond unless you are certain in your answer and have checked the manual.


and be sure to consult the current version of the Game Manual - as of 1/31/2023 it is Version 3.0 released today…
