Many remember earlier this year I designed a CAD of a yoyo that I deemed Gambit. I had prototypes made and was pleasantly surprised with how great they turned out so I decided to that this yoyo needed to be in others hands. So now I am going to releasing a run of Gambits so that some lucky can get their hands on them! The prototypes are exactly like the production so any reviews and thoughts seen before will also be able to assumed for the production run.
I would like to introduce 2sickyoyos! This is the brand name that the Gambit will be going under. 2sick is going to be a brand that focuses on USA made yoyos with excellent quality, optimum playability, and getting a great bang for your buck! We plan on making yoyos that are visually appealing not only in design but colorways as well. Limited numbers in runs and colorways will bring in a collectability value.
Gambit is the first design by 2sick. I designed this in CAD to be a yoyo that could handle the competition oriented style but was also fun to play. It has the proper rim weighting to make it stable and play at a fast pace. The Gambit is perfect for long combos or the short bangers as well as handling horizontal. Available in 2 different alloys as to give options for whether you want that fast and agile gambit or the solid and rock stable one.
There will be 50 gambits made in this run so it will be limited. While its limited in the amount of yoyos there will be a total of 5 colorways available making each colorway 1 of 10. Featured on them will be some unique splash and acid washes that will sure to strike the eye. A total for 40 Gambits will be in 6061 aluminum and 10 will be in 7075 aluminum. That makes this a pretty limited yoyo that would look great in many collections.
A bunch of attention went into this design but also everything else as well. When purchasing a yoyo you want get the best bang for your buck! The gambit will be just that. Each Gambit will retail for $90. A price that is well below many others but you get the same quality and play. I believe that using the community to influence 2sickyoyos will help keep the community united. The purpose for me making these is no to become a famous yoyo producer but because I made something that I want to get into more ’s hands so they can enjoy a design of mine.
I wanted to use services from fellow yoyoers to be able to produce cool things. Every Gambit comes with a custom cut and etched leather keychain featuring the gambit logo made by Josh Updyke. Also included will be a custom handmade string by Mike Shaak (a fellow yoyoer who’s strings are !) that will match the colorway. Machining will be done by Foxland and Anodizing by Gruntbull. Each yoyo will be hand siliconed and hand-tested to ensure the optimum smoothness. All logos are made be forum member JamesMay (Who does work btw). Also thanks to Landon Balk for design help. So as you can see I utilize my fellow community to make this a good release.

Production runs pictures and colorways will be posted when I get them
As I said before for our first release we are going to be selling direct through the forums or through our Facebook page. This is going to be so we can keep the price lower for our customers. If this first yoyo sells well we will definitely want to move into retailers. We will be a seldom release company so when we do release yoyos be ready to pick it up! This may be the only release, one will never know.
