Old School Throws - Resto
Finally! A new take on an old school concept, the tall and narrow bimetal throw is simply captivating.
The Rim weight takes its job seriously, and concentrates much of the weight into the very edge of the tall narrow wings. Used side by side with a normal full sized yo-yo, you might think this is incredibly thin, but throw it around and there's no complaints for power or even stability, thanks to the rim. It may be narrow, but it's still quite easy to land tricks, and is maybe even more rewarding because it's a little challenging at times. It has a mini brother, the Medallion, which features a special tungsten ring weight that gives it a feel of a full sized yo-yo in spite of its size. It's no surprise that the power and appeal of bimetal design is surprisingly well drawn by Old School Throws.
The Resto, short for restoration, is our third model. The slimline was popular before it was called a slimline, back when they were the only yoyos in the market. Today, we are paying homage to the classic design while incorporating modern design features. The stainless steel rings allow for stability beyond what you'd think possible for a yoyo of this frame. The Resto features a full size C-bearing as well as the same soft beadblast from our first two yoyos.
