The XLR8 is a hybrid model containing a metal body with celcon rims. These celcon rims have an extremely smooth feel on the outer edges, making grind tricks easy. The metal body balances the yo-yo perfectly, which will allow your style to look smoother than ever.
Not only does this yo-yo have the smooth feel inside and out, but also its shape is designed for modern day yo-yoing — low cut walls and rounded rims. It feels just right in the hand. The yo-yo comes stocked with YoYoJam’s Solid Spin Axle system, 10 Ball Speed Bearing, and silicone response to generate a smoother style.
We don’t have a lot of details (other than the marketing copy above) on the new YoYoJam XLR8 yoyo being released at Worlds this year, but from this promo video we’ve figured out a few key details about YoYoJam and the XLR8.
- XLR8 requires awkward poses.
- XLR8 has a really wide gap and an insanely open profile.
- YoYoJam forces their apprentice team members to identify themselves via secret handshake.
- Two out of three YoYoJam apprentices are really short.
