Looks like the folks at YoYoBulgaria have a pretty decent working prototype of a fire yoyo. The idea of a fire yoyo is something that comes up every few years…most attempts either don’t stay lit very well, or play horribly. This looks like it might actually be a winner!
According to Martin from YoYoBulgaria, you can throw this 3 – 5 times before the body starts to get hot, and the body of the yoyo has a special coating that helps with heat distribution. The yoyo will come packaged with a set of lightweight gloves that will allow you to play a bit longer than the 3 – 5 throws, and is expected to retail in the $150-range.
What do you think…would you buy a fire yoyo for $150?
