So I’m stuck in a hotel with a camera phone right now, these totally aren’t good enough for official release photos, but check out some of the yoyos we released at Worlds!

LOVIN the new line up… I need to get my hands on a Werrd!!

Only thing missing is the Irony JP… would love to see a size comparison next to the FHZ! Or is the Irony JP same specs as the Irony GBA? …Just with the hubs changed of course?!


#7

Yeah, I don’t have one…we sold out at Worlds before I called dibs, haha! I will have one soon, and get some pics up ASAP!

The profile is the same as the Irony but minor changes were made; it was shorted by about .25-.5 a mil to round it out and make it softer when you catch it and it was widened by about the same amount. These changes sound almost too small to matter, but believe me, they make a big difference! Additionally, the weight has been raised dramatically, bringing it in just under 68 grams. It is truly a beast.


#8

All of them look really cool.

I really like the Tre. It looks awesome. Do you have specs for it? And how does it play? And when will it be released? …a lot of questions. :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ve never owned a Werrd but I think I might be getting one soon!


#9

Tre specs:

Weight: 66.2 grams
Diameter: 56.70 mm
Width: 42.15 mm

How does it play? I will defer you to this:


In short: sick nasty.

Pre-release happened at the World yoyo contest, full release with laser engraving should be in stores soon!


#10

Wow, looks amazing. I love the specs. I can’t wait for this one to drop!
