Most don't know that we have been working hard on our next design and prototyping the last few months. After many trial and errors I feel it's about time to give light to everyone left in the darkness.

I would like to introduce to you our 4th model, the Rook. Yes it's a Bimetal! Designing a bimetal has been a goal of mine since the start of 2sickYoYos and its finally here. The Rook is made from 7075 aluminum and stainless steel. This is a full sized yoyo made to slay competitions. Light weight to allow for fast and nimble play yet the weight placement with the stainless steel rings allow it to spin like a yoyo with more weight. 7075 is more resistant to damage and being a denser alloy allows us to thin out the design and move weight to the rim to maximize spin time.

We are still in prototype stage and while this is near the final production version minor changes to specs and design may still happen. No release date yet but we are hoping for late Spring/ early Summer.

This has been quite the adventure with this design and we hope you tag along on pick up your own rook!

Specs:
Diameter: 55mm
Width: 44mm
Weight: 62.7g
Material: 7075 aluminum and Stainless steel

But, wait, if you guys are going in order of chess pieces, you forgot the Knight.

Well, I just got on facebook to see how to win and I guess I'm not entering. I don't have the money right now to buy a Bishop.  Cry

You know, when I heard that it was called a rook I thought it would be heavier because rooks are generally backbones of a chess game. However, i guess since it's being a bimetal makes it cool though!

Thought the queen would be a titanium bimetal :S


Hopefully the pawn will be a budget metal :3

Unless he waits it out for enough of a fan base to offshore production, I can't see that happening. Outsourcing production for small runs within the States? Not likely to ever be less than $80 at best. And he would probably be breaking even or taking a loss just to say that he did a "budget" yoyo.

Can't help but be impressed with how things have gone Joey. You started with a dream of forming your own yoyo company, and now after 3 fantastic (and well received by the community at large) offerings, you're moving right into bimetal territory. You're a machine!

I have to say that from my experience with 2SYY so far, I have no doubt that this is going to be a fantastic yoyo. Will be keeping my eyes peeled. Grin
