2012 World Champion Shu Takada joined forces with 2013 US & 2014 World Champion Gentry Stein, to bring you this awesome collaboration model!
This is a collaboration model between Shu Takada and Gentry Stein. Takada is a big fan of Gentry's signature Shutter, so they took the Shutter and upgraded the body material to 7075 aluminum, which is denser and more durable than the 6061 model the Shutter is made from. The quality and potential of this yo-yo is apparent the moment you pick it up, and during practice it responds to your commands with laserbeam accuracy.
Furthermore, the sides are even deeper and more concave, to better accommodate top-on style play.
Whatever your play style, the SHU-TA takes all the playability of the Shutter and steps it up to the next level.

I've got three of these as a competition set. They are incredible for the money you spend. Fingerspins are very easy to land, they spin forever, and they're made of durable 7075.
All of the changes from the Shutter make the Shu-ta even better. It is worth the increased price for the drastically increased performance.
