seems like a good deal to me

Yeah I’ll stick with my $100-$175 throw. Way less expensive, look nicer, probably play better and most importantly I don’t have to wait six months to get mine! I have a hard time waiting a week for mine to come in.


#3

Ill take 20… After i win the lotto

That’s an S. Kon masterpiece that he made for a World’s Mod Contest a few years back. Some people have paid that much for these. Come on. The guy hand builds these things! They’re amazing!

You can get them at Rakutan for $4,100.

I believe Kyo has one but I think S. Kon gave it to him.

“If you’re gonna compare a Hanzo sword, you compare it to every other sword ever made…that wasn’t made by Hattori Hanzo.”

Would like to note that the guy makes high precision F1 parts and that this thing is by far the smoothest throw you’ll ever try if you get the chance.


#8

I’m aware of that and I made that recaptioned meme as a joke.


#9

Am I the only person that thinks it’s a hideous monstrosity?


#10

No you are not, that things ugly!! :stuck_out_tongue:


#11

I honestly think that the smaller bearing would decrease spin time


#12

^^^ That is not true.


#13

Would I rather get a 3yo3 ti5 or this thing
I will go with the ti5


#14

On the other hand, if you have a REALLY tiny bike that needs butterfly wheels…


(WildCat23) #15

Nope!


#16

I like how they reference Tom Smothers as the epitome of yoyo skill. I suppose that’s the most most people have been exposed to, though.


#17

That’s a classic piece of work. All of you kids criticizing it just ain’t got no culture.

#19

I think we’ve all seen it by now (or at least we should have XD).


#20

Very incorrect. Shinobu did not ‘give’ a Nostalgia to Kyle. That was good for a laugh though…
