Let it not be said that ILYY is not willing to experiment. When the original Noctu came out you could practically hear an audible gasp from the yo-yo community. The shape looked angry. Up against so many curved gap yo-yo’s, the Noctu both intrigued and terrified buyers which collectively had mixed feeling about the light undersized “bat shaped” yo-yo. Near the end of 2010 ILYY revisited their Noctu design and made it bigger, heavier, and even meaner looking. Forget what you knew about the Noctu, there is a new hand intimidating throw in town.
