In his newest episode of Let’s Talk Yo-Yo, Nate reviews the Bolt Part 2. I love his description of it and how he picked up on all the subtle little details we threw into this yo-yo. You can pick up a Bolt Part 2 on my shop.
As of last week, I am done shipping Bolt Part 2s to all of my Kickstarter backers, which means that I’ll be making them available to everyone else soon. Very soon. This Friday soon!
If you missed the Kickstarter, this will be your first chance to buy a Bolt Part 2 yo-yo on DoctorPopular.com. But wait… there’s more! I’ll also be selling my brand new yo-yo, The Icarus too! The Icarus is the first yo-yo I’ve made without pre-selling on Kickstarter, which feels like a really big deal. So be sure to save the date! Friday June 1st at 8am PST on DoctorPopular.com!
I just received the first pictures from the factory of the Bolt Part 2 yo-yos. The Kickstarter, which ended a month ago, only showed 3 color options, but I decided to add an ALL BLACK Bolt yo-yo to the line up as a surprise to my backers. They seem to like it so far.
The Bolt Part 2 is expected to ship to backers in 3 weeks, then be available on this site shortly after that.
The Bolt Part 2 just launched on Kickstarter and I’m so excited! Many of y’all have been asking me if I’ll ever have more Bolt Yo-Yos in stock and this is the final result. An updated version of a classic yo-yo.
What’s a Bolt?
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Bolt, it was a signature yo-yo I made with the folks at YoYoJam 16 or 17 years ago. It was well loved by modders and had a great shape and feel that many newer yo-yos lack. YYJ has closed their business, so I teamed up with my buddy Hadrien and the folks at C3 Yo-Yo Design to make something that felt new and old-school at the same time.
I’ve either made the greatest Kickstarter video of all time… or the worst.
