Most don't know that we have been working hard on our next design and prototyping the last few months. After many trial and errors I feel it's about time to give light to everyone left in the darkness.
I would like to introduce to you our 4th model, the Rook. Yes it's a Bimetal! Designing a bimetal has been a goal of mine since the start of 2sickYoYos and its finally here. The Rook is made from 7075 aluminum and stainless steel. This is a full sized yoyo made to slay competitions. Light weight to allow for fast and nimble play yet the weight placement with the stainless steel rings allow it to spin like a yoyo with more weight. 7075 is more resistant to damage and being a denser alloy allows us to thin out the design and move weight to the rim to maximize spin time.
We are still in prototype stage and while this is near the final production version minor changes to specs and design may still happen. No release date yet but we are hoping for late Spring/ early Summer.
This has been quite the adventure with this design and we hope you tag along on pick up your own rook!
Material: 7075 aluminum and Stainless steel
