Barely Legal - Czech yo-yo brand


(Bína) #1

I would like to introduce you to another Czech Yo-yo brand, run by two big stars of Czech yoyo community - Robert Kucera and former Clyw team member Zdenek Hybl.

I strongly don’t recommend to google name of this brands or names of its models, you can get some not so yo-yo related links :slight_smile:

All models uses K-pads and ships with quality 10 ball concave bearing.

Their first yo-yo called Treesome, recently discontinued, still my favorite of all BL models.

Barely Legal also makes their own t-shirts, but nothing boring as plain logo, they have some really great designs, but right now I was bale to found just these two:

Apart from Zdenek and Robert, they have team of four very talented younger yo-yoers, here is video presenting all members of team

Cool! I really like the shape of the Rainblow!


(2Sick Joey) #3

They have interested me since I first heard of them…would be cool to see their models here in the US


(WildCat23) #4

First one looks like a Royale


#5

The specs don’t match up at all though :stuck_out_tongue:


(Bína) #6

Well, I would say Royale looks like Treesome. It was released at Czech Nationals 2010, so more than year before Royale.


#7

Hmm…Interesting names…


#8

treesome predates the royale


#9

Very exciting! Babysitter looks way awesome, different too.

Might just have to get one of these before they’re gone…


#10

Blue with white specs looks great


#11

I love the company and each yoyo name.

New Barely Legal yo-yo should be for sale at EYYC. It’s called Klid.

Treesome?

Rainblow?

I’m down ;D

to buying them


(Bína) #14

Guys were inactive for some time, but now are coming back! They just released this nice short video, but what is more important, they are going to release new yo-yo in week or two and this time, it should be available all around the world!


#15

While the names are questionable I wish these boys good fortune. I look forward to what they will be making available to us in the USA.


(Amplified) #16

How are they questionable?


(LordCanti) #17

If you have to ask, you don’t need to know.


(Amplified) #18

No really how is babysitter a questionable name?


#19

I don’t have a problem with the names. Why can’t there be a label that is marketed towards adults?


#20

Is there anywhere I can buy these?
