I’ve always loved the look of the Flying Camel artwork!
Sometimes you’re in the right place at the right time. I picked up this awesome SF era imperial-style Flying Camel last weekend. It’s got a really nice patina and super crisp laser carving. I strung it with some original TK strings and it’s a dream to play. It arrived just in time for Fixed Axle Friday!
Ok, now I’m just jealous of all these Camel’s flying around!
Oh wow that is so sweet
I reckon the Legend Wing is a good one to add on to your order everytime you buy from YYE.
Not for me, I have like 10 NIB!
Are you enjoying it?
Yes it’s so tiny and so fun!
i am stealing this cat pic thank you
Just got this one in from Japan yesterday a Sho 1 Leatheryoyo W, that I was initally introduced to from machitako on Instagram. And yes this is a 100% leather yoyo including the axle in natural hide weighing in at 59 grams. Little different as it’s leather so it has some structural flexibility to it. Haven’t played it that hard, but it’s definitely capable to do some 0A , Shoot the Moons, it can also get around to Double or Nothing and Fly Away dismounts. However, I don’t think I’ll be hitting Spirt Bomb or other similar 1A tricks anytime soon, or at least until it’s broken in as spin times are increasing, currently around 10 seconds with Type-10 cotton with no wraps. Fun and unique to the current collection and I like to keep my mind open, hence why I play fixed axle in the first place.
Now that’s something I never would have imagined seeing. It’s great how creative people can get when trying out new ideas.
Here’s my throw for today.
Oh yo! That art on the side is dope where did you get that?
