Hey guys, YoloYoyo Ben here. I am 12 years old. My friend and I decided that kids did not have enough opportunity to be sponsored in the yoyo community, a yoyo is a toy designed to be played with by kids after all! Then I came up with Yolo Yoyo, A company who has a team of rising players. After a couple months of having the idea, we designed a yoyo, The Bobcat. The Bobcat is designed for almost any yoyo trick possible, for example, fingerspins, thumb grinds, arm grinds, and, horizontal tricks.

You only live once so YOYO!

Our team (look them up)

Yoyo and Return Tops are synonymous terms. To avoid confusion, you may want to roll with one or the other.

Good luck!

I know you're 12, but you really need to improve your english and make a little more sense when you are promoting something of yours.

Me and my friend...
A yoyo company who has a team of rising yoyo players like our team...
After a couple months of having idea...

Other than those things, the yoyo looks great. Good luck

Did you decide what kind of aluminum your prototypes will be? Guesstimate on the final weight? And what bearing?

6061 aluminum. Most likely it will be around 60-65 grams. Center track bearings.

Just normal aluminum. Most likely it will be around 60-65 grams. Center track bearings.
saying, "just normal aluminum" tells us nothing.  There isn't really a normal aluminum.  Just about everything now-a-days is made out of 6061 alloy or 7075 alloy.  There is some variable to that, but those are the two most common.  If you don't even know what material you're making it out of, you can't tell people It's going to be between 60-65 grams.

I could have sworn that he had a CAD shot of it up a while ago.  Either he took it down for some reason, or I'm imagining things.

What a bizarre situation. Why remove the CAD pictures?
Is this still going to happen? Is there going to be a revision? Is the now "bobcat" scrapped?
There was some criticism but that was about the PR not the yoyo itself, that seemed pretty good!

This all comes off as a bit unprofessional. I love seeing new company's but this really isn't the way to go about doing it.
