Basecamp, the ongoing collaboration between CLYW and YoYoFactory, has revealed its next release!
The Sherpa replaces the Moonshine in their product line while also serving as a noticeable evolution of the design. The Sherpa is still a slimline, reponsive metal yoyo, but now with metal caps that give it a completely different look and feel from anything else on the market. The Sherpa ships responsive, but with an included longer axle and CT bearing for unresponsive play.
Plus, it’s a responsive yoyo with a fingerspin dimple. Get brave, y’all.
Response: YYF Slim Pads
Stock: Spec Flat & 8mm Axle with a spare Center Trac & 10mm Axle for Unresponsive Play
Retail Price: Approx $60
Release Date: November 23rd, 2016
