CLYW - The Gorge

This inner-rim bimetal model is a total throwback to the infancy of wing-shape yo-yos!

Since the days that metal yo-yos became mainstream, the tumultuous world of yo-yo designs has seen many huge paradigm shifts. The evolution of yo-yo design has been a fascinating study of material science, physics, and design. CLYW has been here through it all, and helped spearhead a lot of those popular designs.

This yo-yo, the Gorge, is a nod to CLYW's roots, and the narrow-bodied yo-yos of the early 2000's. The high edge and round shape is totally reminiscent of the yo-yos wielded by our modern yo-yo masters, but the stainless steel inner rim weight is a nod to the current trends and capabilities of yo-yo makers. Old school flavor with new school technology!

The Gorge has a very nostalgic feel, that any old player would feel comfortable picking up. Great for a casual throw to take everywhere!

Official Description
Who wants to kick it old school?

The Gorge is a powerful, long-spinning throwback to the days of return top design when walls were high, profiles were round, and bi-metal designs were scarce. This is exactly the sort of return top that CLYW owner Chris Mikulin absolutely loved when he was first starting out, and now he's created one with his own style and design sensibilities.

The Gorge is an oversized return top with a round, narrow profile. It feels amazing in your hand, spins as long as you want it to, and will quickly become your new go-to throw.
