CLYW - Wildfire
Based on the Bonfire, with a mad tilt towards the contest stage. Wildfire will burn through the competition!
Five years after the initial release of the Bonfire, CLYW decided to refresh the line and give it a bimetal power-up. It has the same smooth softeness we’ve come to expect from their lineup, but you can feel the horsepower roaring through the air; this yo-yo is eager for the contest stage.
Just looking at the silhouette, it looks like a resurrection of the original Bonfire, but the stainless rim that leaps from the outside edge looks almost as powerful as it is. The Wildfire burns a bit hotter than the Bonfire, keeping it level through difficult tricks that would really test the limits with a lesser throw. Especially for big energetic moves, the Wildfire also burns lightly, and doesn’t wear the arm or shoulder out, while delivering excellent control throughout your combos.
No matter what your playstyle, the Wildfire will burn through many hands because it fits so perfectly. The Wildfire is the revived, improved version of some real OG CLYW flavor.
*Comes with an original pin badge, determined by which lot your yo-yo is from.
The CLYW Wildfire is the best pure competition return top we've ever made. That feels super weird to say, since we've never really considered ourselves a "competition" kinda company, but here we are. Life moves fast.
If you like speed combos, if you do all that wild horizontal stuff, if you need something ultra fast and light that can rip through all the tricks, well...we made you a thing.
We started with the body profile of the Bonfire, one of our all-time favorite return tops. We carved out a ton of body weight, tried our very best to optimize the rim weight while keeping that "Caribou feel", and then sent our first prototypes to the 2018 World YoYo Contest in Shanghai. The first Wildfire protos helped Andrew Maider get all the way to 1A Finals from the wild card round, which we were awfully proud of. We collected feedback from our team and from lots of other players at the contest, and then we spent months tweaking and obsessing over the design until we landed on this final version.
Our team loves it. All the players we've handed it to seem to love it. We really hope that you love it too.
