From new company Whimsy, the Poker Face is a well-made and incredibly smooth player from this first-time yoyo manufacturer. Heavily rim-weighted for long spins and tremendous stability, the Poker Face spins absolutely dead smooth – so smooth that it’s easy to underestimate how much spin you have left. The Poker Face has an almost organic body shape, but hold spin through regular and horizontal tricks like a more modern shape.
The Poker Face is one of the absolute best looking releases of 2014, featuring some of the best branding and packaging we’ve ever seen.The yoyo features a semi-flexible plastic sidecap that is securely mounted inside the halves, with custom art design to look like a playing card character doing a yoyo trick. The packaging mimics the look of the box of a deck of playing cards and the entire presentation is fantastic, especially for the first release of a new company. The anodization is dark and subtle, with a black and red acid wash (Hearts) or black and blue acid wash (Spades) that looks great up close. It’s even available in a Flocked edition that is basically velvet-covered, which is pretty awesome and hasn’t been seen on a yoyo since the 1970s!
The Whimsy Poker Face retails for $100, and is a gorgeous collectible and top-notch player. If you’re looking for something truly unique in both look and feel, the Poker Face is a solid addition to your collection.
