The Hitman is back!
10 years ago, Johnnie DelValle took the 1A game to a whole new level with his World Championship Freestyle. He introduced grind tricks to the World and made tech look like bangers.
In 2003, YoYoJam partnered with JD to create a revolutionary new yo-yo to accommodate his advanced style… and the HitMan was born.
The HitMan redefined unresponsive play and allowed players to do longer, more technical tricks. It became the icon yo-yo for grinds. Grinds are still one of the most popular, crowdpleasing tricks today. If you look back at JD’s winning freestyle, you’ll know what we mean.
In honor of JD’s greatness, we revamped the yo-yo he used to fit today’s style of play. YoYoJam introduces HitMan X – an all-new product that feels like the original 2003 HitMan, but even better.
Not only do the machined metal rims allow for smooth grind play, but the new HitMan X also contains a wider catch gap, larger diameter, and silicone response making it capable of even more technical play!
This Worlds 2013 edition HitMan is a special pre-release edition with exclusive artwork, set up for unresponsive play. A full production run will follow set up for responsive play out of a package and with a Speed bearing included.
Designed “For the Player, By the Player,” HitMan X is an iconic yo-yo, updated for modern play.
YoYoJam dropped some more rarities up on eBay including more Synergy prototypes and a crazy lighting prototype Dark Magic…definitely worth checking out if you’re a YoYoJam collector!
