A new kind of Sleipnir, with a different shape and weight.
Shinya Kido's Sleipnir is one of the most popular models in yoyorecreation's lineup, and the Gleipnir is its new sister model. The big differences are in the weight and shape. Instead of having a sharp, straight shape like the Sleipnir, the Gleipnir has a rounded outer shape like the Stardust, Blink and E=mc2. The Gleipnir is 3 grams heavier than its sister, giving it a hefty spin and great balance. Keeping the other great features of the Sleipnir, the Gleipnir can be described as a crazy powerful, balanced thow, with a unique feeling.
Please note: YYR uses 7075 aluminium alloy to seek their best performance. 7075 is not a great material for anodizing, so YYR yo-yos have anodizing imperfection and small spots, scratches on their bodies. They seek the best performance, not always the best cosmetics.

The Gleipnir has quickly become one of my favourite throw. Everything I like in its sister, I can find it in the Gleipnir. The specs are exactly what I'm looking for, an endless spin time, an amazing stability. I wouldn't trade mine for any other yoyo!
