I wanted to create a more subtle look for this special edition yo-yo, so we laser etched the logo before the yo-yo it was anodized. The end result looks like an all black yo-yo, with a light texture on the aluminum hubs. Similar to the cover of Metallica’s “black album”. Or maybe Spinal Tap’s “Smell The Glove“.
This aluminum yo-yo feels light and floaty with a very classic feel.

What are those holes for? They are an experiment of sorts. I wanted to see if I could reduce some of the middle weight, leaving more stability in the center and out edges of the yo-yo. I was also hoping to see if the extra air friction from the holes would help keep the loops open during yo-yo “suicides”. But mainly I wanted them there because I think they look awesome.
