One Drop YoYos have finally released the Cabal, their long-rumored second plastic yoyo. Their first plastic yoyo, the Rally, was well received but discontinued, and was a molded part that was finished with machining. The Cabal is a completely machined, POM (commonly known by the trademarked named “Delrin”) yoyo with a custom machined axle & guts setup. They haven’t hit retailers yet, but expect to see them in stores this month! Check out full specs and more pics below.
The Chico YoYo Company has released a new spin top, with a new tip design that hearkens back to an old Duncan top tip design from the 70s/80s.
It seems to be called just “New Spintop”, simply enough, and is made of machined delrin. The body shape is a sleek teardrop, very different from CYYC’s first spin top release.
The tip has a flat, wide base and a narrow shaft, very reminiscent of a vintage Duncan spin top tip that was geared towards helping beginners to learn more advanced tricks…while a flared tip design like this helps you catch the top back on the string, it does also make it a bit harder to release, which means more advanced top players might find this tip to be fantastic for inverted tricks while required some compensation for more typical tricks.
The new Chico YoYo Company spin top is available now at ChicoYoYoCompany.com for $95 each.
First up is the Emmett, a fixed steel axle delrin yoyo. WTF, you say? WTF indeed. We had no idea there was a demand for this, but gotta admit…it looks neat. Available for $35 each.
Next we have a new multi-tone version of The Currier, this one made up of Walnut, Purpleheart, and Yellow Heart. Pretty amazing looking stuff, and this one will retail for $45 each. The last multi-tone Curriers went pretty fast, we’re guessing these will too.
And finally, a new engraved edition of the Currier with new artwork by the Hildy Bros themselves. Available in either Purpleheart or Paduak, each comes with the Hildy Bros logo on one side and the skull logo on the other. Available for $30 each.
