The guys from Radical Seas and Freshly Dirty met at Worlds in 2016 and quickly became friends. After some discussion they decided to collaborate on a new yo-yo that challenges the norm. This is the Canary!
The Canary was born of several 3:00am chats between Jamelle Kent and Alex Morton. They discussed the need to bring the Size D Bearing into 2018, and this yo-yo is how they ar going to do it! It was drafted and designed by Arthur Foley while he was studying abroad in Australia, and after a couple prototypes they knew they had something special.
To create a modern yo-yo that pays proper homage to other D bearing yo-yos released upwards of 10 years ago is no easy task, but the Canary has blown us away! It has a low-mid wall that bumps out to a beautifully comfortable organic profile. Reminiscent of some older models, but offering impressive performance on par with modern throws. They kept the overall weight very low with a chunky rim to give the Canary a zippy yet powerful feel on the string that will keep you coming back for more!
If this release can expose just a handful to a unique aspect of yo-yo design that brings a wave of happiness, the collaboration will be a smashing success!
