Do most protos start a 300 for one yoyo?
no no no. protos should cost generally less than $100 most of the time. Foxland charges $70 and one drop does 60. (this is just my experience)
It was foxland who was requesting 300 when they replied back. :s

Did they tell you about programming costs? Because these prices seem completely off.

Actually, I think that includes programing costs, but I'm not sure. They told me $300 for 4 yo-yos, so I just figured it into 75 each.

It's a fixed price. Doesn't change. You pay $300 and get 4 protos. No discussion. Each yo-yo figures to be worth $75, but you can't ask for one and pay $75. Doesn't work like that. The $300 does include programming and such as well.

Hope this clears things up Smiley

Yeah. And its the same deal with Onedrop roughly. $600 gets you 25 HALVES. They generally make a couple mistakes so you end up with 10 yoyos. But that $600 covers every step of production, as long as you come in with a sketch. It can even be rough and not exact.

I got a dwg set up on my student version autoCAD for foxland to do a couple of yoyos.

I just need to know if the student version is okay and need to raise $300.

BTW the yoyo is a small bearing and is 53.78 mm in diameter

The small bearing thing, did you consider a "D" bearing?  Fewer snags, and if you want, you can get 5x11x4 bearings.

Yea, I want this yoyo to be me though. And I love A-Sized bearing yoyos. I want this to be 60% me, 40% competition style.
I do mostly use C and D sized bearings in my other designs. (in total of about 7 for HC)

Oh, ok.  You want it to be about design.

Best to tackle them early on, especially checking for patents
