Broke Village is a brand new company founded by Cory Gardner based out of Austin, Texas. Cory has always been an avid fixed axle yo-yo player and when he noticed a void in the market he decided to take action! This is the all new Fixed-axle Fidalgo!
You can probably tell by looking at the Fidalgo that this isn’t your average fixed-axle yo-yo. The Fidalgo is machined from aluminum to the same standards as the high end aluminum ball bearing yo-yos you know, but designed specifically for fixed-axle play! This gives you an incredibly smooth throw and accurate weight that you really just can’t get with wooden yo-yos.
The Fidalgo really has that classic clean look, and with the narrow stepped profile, higher walls, and light weight, the Fidalgo plays just as good as it looks! What string can you use with the Fidalgo you ask? Any string! Since the metal axle sleeve and flowable silicone response will not wear polyester strings like most wooden response will, you can use any string you like – cotton, poly, and everything in between!
The fidalgo is an excellent first yo-yo from Broke Village and a perfect throw for any fixed-axle enthusiast. We cannot wait to see what they do next!
