iYoYo - TiTANiC
The super popular Iceberg has met it's match, in full titanium!
During the height of the metal era, the Iceberg was an ultra-popular model, constructed with a plastic body and a metal rim. That now-classic design has been given new life, cast in full titanium. The clever naming is both a nod to the body material and the indelible link between icebergs and ships named Titanic.
Though it's based on the Iceberg, it shares a lineage with the bimetal Steel, and it took several prototypes to find the right playfeel to pull the full qualities of titanium out of the yo-yo. With the lightness and durability of titanium, you can really push yourself during practice and explore the limits of what you're capable of. The 42mm wide body is just a little narrow, but the weight has been pushed to the thick rims, giving the Titanic the power to plow full speed ahead right through that iceberg!
Though it's made to be played, the beautiful shiny finish is worthy of any shelf in your trophy room. No iYoYo collection is complete without this masterpiece.

For a yoyo with relatively restrained dimensions--it isn't super wide or large in diameter--it plays with extreme performance characteristics including long spin and high stability. Its hand feel expresses as a remarkable combination of fun and high-level function. Sure, titanium is expensive, but this is my best throw in a collection of really good aluminum yoyos.
