Just a heads up. It came to my attention today that the use ereneren546 has been selling bootleg Yoyorecreation yoyos as legitimate Yoyorecreations on a different forum. Apparently he was using the money people sent him to buy them from the bootleg site in China and having them shipped directly to the buyers. From what I’ve gathered thus far, it seems that they can be told apart because the bootlegs have no box, a bigger axle, wider pads, a different sheen to them, and are in colorways that you don’t see on the YYR website – though some of the bootlegs are in official YYR colorways. I’ve included a picture of a legit and a bootleg half for reference. Just be on the lookout. Mad props to kbjork and Sunny for the info.
Yoyos I’ve been told are currently being bootlegged:
Messiah ; SİLVER ,PURPLE ,BLUE, PİNK
OverDrive ; SİLVER , BLACK , BLUE , PİNK , GOLD
Leviathan II ; SİLVER , GOLD , PİNK , BLUE , RED
Sleipnir Take That ; SİLVER , RED
Shinya Kido Sleipnir ; BLUE
Here’s some comparison pictures of the engravings.
