Dif-e-yo is back! And the latest yo-yo to come out of the Dif-e-yo workshop is a design inspired by their legendary 2004 Worlds Mod Contest entry – The Gladiator! This new and updated version of the Gladiator really pays tribute to it’s predecessor and does an excellent job of fusing old school style with modern competition level performance – The all new Gladiator Slave!
From the intricately carved cup design, to the precision weighted set screws in the rims, to the o-ring/pog system – Everything about the Gladiator Slave screams Dif-e-yo! And as you might expect from Dif-e-yo, the Gladiator Slave has a profile on the narrower side, but that does not hold it back in any way!
Thanks to the unique weight distribution and stepped profile this yo-yo packs an amazing amount of stability and spin time into its narrow frame. And with the double o-ring and metal pog system you can adjust the weight of the yo-yo to suit your preference!
The Gladiator slave has a base weight of 60 grams without the o-rings or pogs, perfect for those looking for a super fast and nimble throw with a light feel on the string. Kick it up to 62 or 64 grams with one or two o-rings on each side for some extra stability and a more powerful spin on the throw. Or go all out and throw the metal pogs in for a 70 gram heavyweight powerhouse of a yo-yo!
With all these different setup options the Gladiator is easy to customize to your style of play and easy to switch up whenever you feel like it!
