Japan Technology - Fossil
This full titanium yo-yo is addictive! The Fossil is a stress-free, super fun throw!
Despite being a high end full titanium model, the Fossil is a slight departure from the serious machinery that's come from Japan Technology before. JT has admitted that the whole goal was to create a high end yo-yo that's just, well, fun to throw! Just a little flick of the wrist gives you plenty of spin, and the Fossil will obediently follow your commands as it happily spins at the end of the string. The playfeel is really stress free, it's hard to describe otherwise. It has a sharp-looking shape, but actually has a soft catch and even the sensation of it hitting the string is surprisingly gentle. There's really no way to describe it other than "pleasant."
From the Maker
This fine monometal yo-yo was carefully hand-crafted out of high quality titanium, by engineers in Japan. This yo-yo has a slightly different feeling from our previous titanium yo-yos, thanks in part to the new 10mm axle we haven't used before. We designed the Fossil to have a delicate balance between straight and curved, designed not just to play well, but also to look beautiful and luxurious.
The artwork was overseen by our team member, Bryan Figueroa. The design is inspired by the name, borrowing visual patterns from ammonite fossils, which, like the yo-yo itself, uses many straight lines to create a delicate and complex curved design.
We think you'll get hooked on the Fossil, and find yourself reaching for it without thinking. The Fossil is truly a unique high end titanium yo-yo.
