Goodbye Wasabi, hello Torino!

In 2008, we designed a yoyo that suited crackout’s style perfectly – the Wasabi. 2009 brought an update, heavier and more powerful. In January 2010, we thought about a third run, but then scrapped the draft. crackout wanted even more rimweight and stability but the shape just reached its limits. So we designed a whole new yoyo, bigger, stronger, better but with the soul of its father.

So here it is, crackout’s new ‘signature’ yoyo – the Torino.

2009 Wasabi & Mary, all new Rocket

Hey there,

it’s been a while since the last update from us. But we’re back with fresh new stuff. First of all, we updated Wasabi and Mary giving them more smoothness, more power, more weight (check the specs later on). Also, we developed an all new yoyo called Rocket.
However, since it was April Fools Day, our anodzier thought “why not mix some colours”. The result: Mary is Green, Wasabi is Pearl and Rocket is Red. These colours only affect the pre-production models. The final ones will be: Wasabi: Candy Green, Mary: Candy Red, Rocket: Candy Pearl.

Pics say more than words, here you go.

The Candyman can!

In addition to our successfull Wasabi & Mary batch we decided to have some special colours. Those are black, titanium and blue. These yoyos are for our German friends, because all Wasabis and Maries were sold in other countries.
International fans: Keep an eye on the trade boards. :)

All this colour!

Wasabi & Mary Prototype BatchFinally, our colour samples made their way back from the anodizer. We’re totally happy with how they turned out. We call this our “Candy Blast Finish”. Metallic looks, amazing grindability but easy to strings.

While Wasabi comes in a fresh and bright green (who would have guessed), Mary features an epic autumn red.

Production should start soon. We’re aiming for a summer release!
