Werrd dropped pics of the updated Hour yoyo on their way to Japan Nationals, but I was able to catch Stu Brown in transit for some more details!
Werrd 2K13 Hour Specs:
- 60mm diameter
- 41.5mm wide
- 4.7mm gap
- 65.5 grams
- K-pad response
- Center Trac Bearing
- BluePrint String
Splash Anodised (multiple colors)
Gold Anodized (for the pimp look)
Silver Anodized (for stage bling)
According to Stu:
I revised the weight distribution to see if we could speed up the Hour on the string a little. This is tricky for such a large diameter yoyo but I was able to do this by adding percentage weight to the rim and increasing spin time while actually making the 2K13 Hour lighter and more maneuverable. Success.The Werrd Bounty is still up for grabs and the Hour and 2K13 Hour are the current weapons of choice. Before Worlds we will add another yoyo (or maybe 2) to the eligible Bounty yoyo arsenal.Limited pieces of the 2K13 Hour will be pre-released at Japan Nationals this weekend. For Japan Nationals Werrd is attending in force; flying in, fresh off his BAC 3A Win is Eric Tran-ton. Australian National Champion Vu Ho and Yu Tsumura will also be in attendance as well as the heart beat of Werrd – Stu Brown and Andrew Savage.
Sounds like huge things are in store for Werrd…we’ll update with more info as we’re able to get it. In the meantime, check out the team and new throws at Japan Nationals this weekend! Stu hinted to me that there might be some more new releases at Japan Nationals if they make it in time…we’ll find out soon!
