What's more hypnotic than the DJ in Zoolander? YYF's new gorgeous project yo-yo, the Turntable.
From the record-breaking long-sleeping Buddha King, to the world's smallest playable ball bearing yo-yo (the Mighty Flea), to the first bimetal throw to popularize the genre (Catch-22), YoYoFactory has created many "project" yo-yos over the years that have become instant classics in one sense or another.
Sporting an unmistakable side profile dubbed the "Quattro Foil Rim", YoYoFactory's new Turntable yo-yo another such "special project" yo-yos that ignore the current trends or traditional rules in yo-yo making to create something new and special, and this one is a real head-turner. The multi-stepped side face is truly hypnotic, and actually gives the Turntable a mysterious sense of lightness and balance during play,, with exceptionally long sleeps. It has quickly become a favorite of YYF team members.
In addition to the gorgeous design, YYF has turned the Turntable out of 7075 aircraft aluminum, a stronger and more durable alloy than the normal 6061. Also, you may notice that the gently inverse-curved profile makes it feel like the yo-yo lands on center every time you hit the string, giving the Turntable a really satisfying playfeel.
Turn it up!
