2011 Asia Champion, Christopher Chia's "TAKE THAT" Sleipnir from yoyorecreation.

Amongst 1A players, horizontal tricks have recently become very popular. Performed sideways, “sleep loss” makes these tricks extremely difficult. Now a staff member here at Rewind, Kido designed Sleipnir to minimize sleep loss. In 2009, Kido used a prototype Sleipnir to claim 1st place at the World Yo-Yo Contest.

Employing yoyorecreation’s conventional low-edge and step-straight body type, Sleipnir is a top-class yo-yo. Its 65 grams are well-placed, ensuring a long, balanced sleep. Sleipnir is the first YYR model to use the same 7075 Aluminum used to make aircrafts, and as a result, this thing can really fly! The low-edge design gives it a solid spin despite its lightness, noticeable in normal string tricks as well. Even a powerful throw is unlikely to throw it off-balance. In fact, it feels as if the yo-yo spins of its own accord. With such improved speed and balance, it’s exciting to think of all the new tricks that can be developed!

*We’ve received reports that the body is so tightly assembled it is difficult to open. If you have difficulty, try using gloves with a rubber grip to give you more torque. If still have difficulty, please let us know.

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 best cosmetics.

BEFORE YOU BUY YYR YO-YOS, PLEASE READ THIS. (Please read the red paragraph)
