German-based iYoYo has started a fundraising campaign on popular crowdfunding platform IndieGoGo for their next model…an injection molded plastic yoyo called Kickstart. The Kickstart will be molded and produced entirely in Germany, which is definitely unusual for the yoyo industry…there’s just not a lot of yoyo production happening in Europe! It also features a unique spacer + shim assembly, intended to let the user choose between a wider gap (unresponsive) and narrower gap (responsive), to suit their skill level.
Check out full specs and a blow-apart diagram video of the yoyo below, and then head over to the campaign page to support the campaign and help fund this yoyo!
