YoYoNews has your first look at the next titanium yoyo to hit the market, the iYoYo TiGER! Designed as a collaboration between ILYY and iYoYo, the TiGER is a fully titanium body with a polished gold finish, and will retail for €250 (about $278 USD). You can pre-order the TiGER now direct from iYoYo and get a massive €50 discount, which is a pretty good deal! The TiGER will begin shipping to players and retailers in October 2015. Check out the specs and full statement below from iYoYo.

Weight: 67.5 grams
Bearing: Size C Ceramic KonKave

When I started iYoYo, I knew I wanted to run a collab-yoyo of some sort with ILYY (formerly iloveyoyo). I have been friends with Dominik and Frank for a long time and know what they are capable of doing.
During our annual Easter Meeting, Frank and I go struck by the idea of making a Titanium throw. Titanium from GERmany…TiGER! Cliché name? Maybe, but we love it 🙂
Shape-wise, the yo-yo is a mixture of the iYoYo 2 and my favorite ILYY, the Torino. When thinking about colors for titanium yoyos, we remembered raw, silver and blue/purple versions. We wanted to do it different. We wanted to have something more subtle….nah, we wanted to make it BLING! 🙂
The TiGER will come in shiny Gold polished, which looks sooooo good during play and will make you shine on any contest or yoyo demo you ever do!
It comes stock with a high-performance Ceramic Konkave Bearing, kindly licensed by Dif-e-Yo, as well as regular slim silicone pads for easy maintenance.
How many we’re going to make? That’s up to you! As you can imagine, being a small brand means we will not be able to finance a huge run. Therefore, we’ll make as many as are pre-ordered through the store and of course from our retailers!
The TiGER is available today for Pre-Order on my store Yo-Shop.de. Pre-Ordering gets you a whopping 50 EUR off. Shipping will be in October 15!
If anybody wants to try it, go and grab Carlos Braun at Worlds in Tokyo, he’ll have it with him!
