The Wolf has been in the works for almost all of 2016. G2 has been working closely with Zammy to create him a signature yoyo.I have been making some of the highest quality yoyos for almost 5 years now. This time I wanted the challenge of making a yoyo for someone else’s preferences instead of what I wanted. Zammy was the perfect fit for this. Trick Innovator of the Year in 2014, and one of the best known players in the world, it only made sense to set it up as a collaboration.Zammy told me everything he wanted in his perfect yoyo, and I did my best to create a yoyo for that. Slight changes to the first proto, and we have done just that with the Wolf. The Wolf is a big comfortable H shape yoyo.The Wolf is expected to be released on Wednesday, November 23rd.
