After a two-year hiatus, Whimsy YoYos is back!
The company that brought us the Poker Face, Aloha, Roar, and OMG are back with a new bi-metal release, the Aloha Encore, and it’s their strongest design yet. Incorporating design elements from the Aloha, the most popular of their original releases, and upgrading it with new weight distribution and stainless steel weight rings, the Aloha Encore aims to be a new competition yoyo from the reborn Whimsy YoYos. We got a chance to play with one of these pre-release models and it’s definitely a great upgrade from the original Aloha…lots more power but still feels great in the hand.
A limited pre-release (plus some b-grades) will be available direct from the Whimsy website on April 28th, with a full retail release of the Aloha Encore following shortly after. Check out specs and more pics below!
