A very interesting concept! Sherpa is a hollow-bodied full metal yo-yo with a retro shape.

The Sherpa are an ethnic group from the Himalaya, famous for being mountain guides. The concept is similar to the Moonshine, with a retro body that conceals the very modern design and technology used to make it. The Sherpa wasn't made for technical string tricks that demand fast, long sleep times; it was made to give a feeling of nostalgia with a modern twist.

The seam joining the parts together is so thin that it looks like there's a full metal cap, but the entire hollow body is sealed. With an old school slender body, the Sherpa has a playfeel that makes it stand out in the Basecamp lineup. Even compared to yo-yos with the same 64g weight, the Sherpa is in a league of its own!

Official Discription
The Sherpa is designed for one reason - to be your companion wherever the adventure takes you. The slimline shape allows for easy storage in packs or pockets, the bearing is interchangeable with the included spare Center Trac for classic or modern play, and the full metal caps offer a comfortable feeling that few yoyos have ever accomplished. To keep the Sherpa modern, the caps feature a subtle inverted hub that make finger spins easier than ever to master.

"What is B-Grade?"
In 2009, YoYoFactory started selling a selection of "outlet" items at events. Calling them "B-Grades," that name has spread throughout the yo-yo world, and is now a common term.
At B-Grade sales, you can pick up excellent yo-yos with mild imperfections, discolorations, marks or scratches. These make them less desirable as finished products, but they're still great yo-yos and totally playable, meaning you can get a high quality throw for a bargain price. As a result, B-Grade sales have become very popular.

"What kinds of B-Grades are there?"
The majority of B-Grades have small discolorations or cosmetic blemishes from the anodization process. These are known as "C-Types," whereas yo-yos that are not perfectly balanced and have some vibes are called "V-Types." Some may have both types of imperfection; it's always good to double check

Important Points:
B-Grades are outlet products because for one reason or another they haven't met the maker's standards for their products, things to look out for include:
-color imperfections, finish may look dull or scratched
-bearing or response pads aren't well installed or working properly. Often, switching out these parts will address these issues.
-Bearings or pads may differ from the standard product model.
-Artwork or logos may differ from the standard model.
-Other issues may exist, but nothing so bad as to make the yo-yo unplayable.
