ILOVEYOYO (ILYY) is known for some amazing, and sometimes completely bonkers, designs. That being said, they have been flying under the radar as of late. I think this is partly to do with a lack of a more “competition” oriented yo-yo in their design line up. Their latest release, The Nile, looks to change this and we have Ernie Kaiser from General Yo to thank. Ernie suggested to Frank that he design a yo-yo like this. Those wondering if there link between these two companies need look no further. Frank from ILYY was invited to become a member of General Yo’s competition team a few years back and has been a member for some time, although Frank and Ernie have been friends quite a bit longer. In taking Ernie’s suggestion, ILYY has created a yo-yo completely different from their past efforts. Whether this is a good thing or a bad thing remains to be seen. Time to check out ILYY’s big foray into competition style, high RPM yo-yos.
