Are there ANY Bearing Woods?


#1

besides the Sleep Machine and Roller Woody from Kuhn? I’d really like a C Size 56mm x 43mm Wooden H-Shape. I really need to get a Lathe, here.


#2

The jamboo (?) by YYJ. or the RD-1 by Tom Kuhn.


#3

I have honestly never heard of the Jamboo or known YYJ to make any Wood Bearing Yo-Yo’s. Kuhn seems to have that market pretty well to themselves, which I can’t say they don’t deserve seeing they were affiliated with BC in the 90’s and the product quality seemed to carry over.


#4

RD-1 with weight rings is great, just wish the response was better…they should do a silicon-recessed version.


#5

Eric Wolff.


#6

YoYoJam Jamboo

I had to finish off my JAMBOO


#7

Wow, the craftsmanship on that Jamboo looks very lovely. :o


#8

Alan Gray is a Master of Wooden yoyos with bearings.


#9

Hicoo had one iirc


#10

Well, I did look for that Yo-Yo by Eric Wolff as suggested and was unable to find it. Even more interesting, is the idea of “AlchemyYoYos”. The Logo even with proper usage of Elemental Symbolism.

As mentioned above, Eric does one-off custom stuff… if you don’t know him, you’ll probably have to find him at a contest to get one.

Alchemy is a dead yoyo company, it was started by another yoyo store and didn’t last very long… most of their yoyos were pretty bad.
