OneDrop created a brand new side effect for the SE Sakura resembling the original shape of the horn.

We incorporated ace laser engraving to every yoyo.

Enter the Nile!

We can finally show you the first prototypes of our most recent design: the Nile

ILYY Nile Prototype

Diameter: 56.00mm
Width: 44.00mm
Weight: 66.20g
Gap: 4.20mm
Response: Hot Red SILYYcone
Bearing: ILYY KMK Metric
Coating: Soda Blast (Black/Gold Splash)

There will be a total of 11 prototypes for sale. You can buy them directly from us via email for 75€ plus shipping. The remaining ones will go to international shops.

Since we have no experience with high RPM/mid-weight-focused yoyos yet, further testing and feedback is required before we decide if we keep developing this design. It plays great, but feels vastly different than what we are used to. We are not sure if it feels “right”.

Christmas Eels!

Christmas Saint Eel ILYY Saint Eel
We decided to go for a final batch of Saint Eels for this Christmas. This time, they are finished by vibratory grinding in two steps. The first being ceramic pellets followed by wallnut shells. This gives the outside of the halves a smooth polish-like appearance while the inside keeps its machining looks. The specs are the same as those of the last batch.

Around 30 were made. These will be the last Eels to slither out of our shack. If you want the reigning micro-yoyo king, keep your eyes open. Those will ship soon to retailers.

New releases!

It’s been a while. But that time was well spent. Check out the 2012 versions of the Fury and the Enigma!

Fury:

This 2012 variant is 3g lighter than the original which gives it a lot more floaty goodness. Stability is not affected. This thing flies like on rails. Oh, and it’s limited. Crazy limited. Only 15 made, exclusively for YoYoExpert.

Enigma:

Also featuring our new IRG design, the brand new 2012 Enigma. A total of 25.

Available soon at YYE, YYSR and Yo-Shop!

Special PYBITs

We had a few PYBITs that had some marks on the rims. That’s why we had Sparta of Spartanik YoYos mod them a little bit for ous. This is the outcome of his awesome work:

There are eight in total. They all have some slight wobble, nothing affecting performance at all. You can get one via email for 45€ including a KMK conkave bearing. The rest will head to retailer soon (without conkave).

These are the last PYBITs, there will be no more made.

Update: All gone. Thanks!
