Doc Pop has launched a Kickstarter project to fund production for the Bolt Part 2, the official follow up to his much loved plastic yoyo, the Bolt.
Originally manufactured by YoYoJam, the original Bolt was a fun plastic yoyo that was great for beginners and advanced players, and had that extra bit of charm that all of Doc’s projects seem to carry. The Bolt Part 2 looks like it will be another great, fun yoyo and with manufacturing by C3yoyodesign the quality is going to be top notch.
Check out the project description below, and then head over to Kickstarter to back the project and guarantee your own!
The Original Bolt was a hell of a throw, and was manufactured for over 5 years, with devout fans all over the world. After 12 years, we’ve taken the best of the Bolt design and updated it for modern play.
The final design is a collaboration between myself (Doc Pop) and Hadrien Bennaceur (who has designed some of my favorite yo-yos) and will manufactured by the awesome folks at C3 Yo-Yo Design, makers of the Re:Master Galaxy, FingerSpin, and Speedaholic (just to name a few). Big shout out to Hadrien, Walter, and Ron for working on this yo-yo with me.
The Bolt Part 2 is made from machined delrin, with aluminum hubs and side caps for better play and longer spins. The caps feature a new “cubby hole” design for horizontal finger spins and delrin body has “schmoove grooves” to reduce string friction. It fits comfortably in your pocket, but still has a nice catch-zone.
Most importantly, it still feels fun.
