It doesn't matter, just buy their yoyos.

It might matter to some of us.  I for one prefer to support any type of products that are primarily manufactured in North America whenever possible.  Trying to support more local jobs and economy and all that.

That m on the minefield looks similar to the logo of a certain American adjunct lager that I used to favor. Any story to it?

Very exciting, and the color choices all look amazing!  That Trim Party version looks especially sexy to me Smiley

I have to admit that I don't know much about YYW.  Do you guys do all of the manufacturing in house or do you work with any other companies?

Everything is made in North America. Even the boxes are made in America (Texas to be specific)!

That is great to hear, thanks for clarifying that for me.

And yes, I also made the mental leap to Miller  Grin

Rosenberg: to fully answer your question...

Dave and I are HUGE Foo Fighters fans. It's the same type face (font) that they use. Smiley

Is there any difference is weight (or any specs for that matter) with the 7075 versions?  I apologize if that is a dumb question, but I have never purchased a 7075 yo-yo before.

7075 aluminum is heavier than the normal 6061. I imagine it weighs more by about 2 grams or so, depending on the yoyo.

Zorro is right, the 7075 models weigh 66.8g

Yep, that'd be the one  Smiley. But I do see the foo fighters now. Just snagged one. Really looking forward to it.  Haven't picked up a new throw in a while. I told myself I had to sell some stuff off first (still will) but I didn't want to miss this one

Man, I through one of the new 7075 colorways at SEC. Those things were incredible. I didn't buy one but they are now officially on my want list.

I concur after throwing my Minefield today. My favorite size and shape. I am not really into blindingly fast play, and this one suits me perfectly. Solid but not sluggish, stable, and the color way is unique. No complaints and now I only wish I could try 6061 also
