Box 47 Tier 1 July 2020

This month’s throw is from YoYoSpin, I’ve been seeing a lot of what Ed has been crafting online (YYBST on FB) so I reached out and he was very excited about participating and getting his creations out to some of our subscribers.
All mod’d from vintage 1970’s Parker Pros. The string gap has been widened for smooth and well balanced play. All of the cabochons are hand made, and 2-of-a-kind…one matching on each side. He made us 6 different color combos so what you get is what you get but they all look amazing!!! It is a standard size one-piece (no glue) imperial, modified recently here in Ed’s Colorado shop. Check out YoYoSpin.com for more information.

This month’s throw is from 2sick, we have had a great relationship with Joey since we started in 2016 and this throw is called the Crusade. The Crusade comes in a red and black colorway of our choice and has the Monthly Throw “MT” logo on the side exclusively. Look for details at the 2sick website http://2sickyoyos.com as details have not yet been released. The box includes the Crusade with 2 random Duncan Counterweights and a pair of para cord bracelets for funsies.

The value of this month’s box is $120.00

 

The latest release from 2sickyoyos is an impressive competition geared bi-metal that takes the classic 2sick aesthetic to the next level – The Crusade!  2Sick created the Crusade to push the boundaries of competitive play. This lightweight bi-metal has a wide-set profile with a huge catch zone and thick steel rings that create the optimal weight distribution to maximize stability and spin power. It plays bouncy and fast on the string and really excels at horizontal play with minimal string drag from the inverse curved profile.

The Crusade is everything you’re looking for in a new bi-metal design!

The Tourney (Clear Coat) from Duncan with a random counterweight

Tourney Specifications:
Diameter:56.00 mm / 2.2 inches
Width:44.00 mm / 1.73 inches
Gap Width:4.43 mm / 0.17 inches
Weight:63.93 grams
Bearing Size:Size C (.250 x .500 x .187)
Response:19mm Slim Pad Size
Material:6061 Aluminum w/ Stainless Steel Rings
Designed in:USA
Made in:China
Release Date:August 2019

We’ve spent some time working with Bryan Jardin from Duncan to set this box up. Although this throw lanched in August of 2019 the Clear Coat version is unreleased and is exclusive to us The box also includes a little bonus random counterweight to give some 5A may a shot.

Imagine a simple yo-yo design with no gimmicks at all: Fewer edges, a straight-up competition-ready yo-yo, AND bi-metal, AND double-rim? Yep. That’s the Tourney. The body shape is heavily related to our 2017 model the Grasshopper X. This was Owen’s go-to yo-yo then, but he wanted something more suited to his style. So we took all the best bits of it and added a little bit of magic to make it something you’ll love just as much as Owen does. The best part of it is that its great look and uniqueness don’t hinder its playability. The Tourney having a stainless steel inner rim actually plays a central role in making this yo-yo fast, stable, and giving it an unmatched spin time.

The value of this month’s box is $82.00.

Box 43 Tier 1 January 2020

This month’s throw is from MrYoYoThrower himself- The $- by Rain City Skills.

Who other than Rain City Skills would make a bootleg of a dollar store yoyo? “The Dollar” is a design based off of the infamous Dollar Tree YoYo (head to MrYoYoThrower.com/DTYY for the history. In short, it was a playable, ball bearing yoyo sold at Dollar Tree for a buck each. While they were available, madness, modding and gifting ensued. 

You are receiving a special edition of the Dollar, wolorway made exclusively for TMT. 

MrYoYoThrower wanted a new beginner yoyo from RCS so he made enough to get them at an affordable price. The design comes unresponsive but has a responsive slim bearing to boot. The box also comes with some fun Lego snaps a holster, and bag.

Enjoy!

Box 41 Tier 2 November 2019

This month’s throw is from Good Life. Riptide is Luke Trautwein’s yoyo. It’s been an honor to see Luke’s progression in yoyo throughout the years and his style come to what it is today. Luke thinks differently, breaking down tricks to their elemental core and reconstructing them in a more minimalist way. Although his tricks are extremely efficient and smart, you’ll always catch Traut having a good time on or off the stage. He lets his skill and practice do the talking, and after taking home titles like 4th in the US and 13th in the world this past year, everybody knows Luke has something unique to bring to the stage and community. When we started talking with Luke about a yoyo his favorites were the Igloo and Breeze, so It wasn’t a huge surprise that he wanted to borrow inspiration from them for the Riptide. With this inspiration in mind we set out to create a mono metal that would be very stable for competition tricks and horizontal play. We wanted Riptide to have the same light nimble feeling as some of his favorite bi metals, but we knew as a mono making it heavier would only add stability. At 65 grams we found it was a perfect balance between an agile and stable throw, making sure it has a unique feel and the weight compliments the shape correctly. The shape is very close to being a “strict” V shape but has a very subtle bubble to it, inspired by our previous designs the Gully and Gulch. Luke used the Riptide to compete and take sixth at Mass States recently, and we can’t wait to see his tricks and freestyles change and evolve as his yoyo continues to evolve with him!
Specs:
4.6mm gap width
65 Gram total
45.5 mm width
55.4mm DIAMETER
