If you follow The yoyo Reddit, you likely know of my exploits already. If not, these postings should show you how far I’ve come.
My latest official model is shown here. It focuses on being a versatile all in one tool kit that holds your throw.
This is a new experimental model. Much slimmer, and it clips to any pants.
This is an experiment in alternative mounting systems. , and turning the holster into a stand. Many like it the most of all.
So here’s my pitch. Yoyo’s have gotten alot more advanced in past 10 years. Whether it’s 5a, Bimetals, or the 9 Dragons, theirs been alot of evolution in the field of throwing. Shouldn’t the way you carry your throw evolve too?
I got sick of carrying my throw in a normal dangly holster. It got stuck in every dam door, desk, door, passerby, seat, door… I hate it. And don’t even get me started on the scratches. I don’t care if it’s a beater no throw deserves this. And even worse, you ever have someone walk up to you And ask to see a trick? And then walk away because it took you 5 flipping ever to get the yoyo out? (Me neither but it takes to long.) And if you chuck it in your pocket… Well is that a yoyo in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
That’s why I’m developing the EDC Holster. Because we need a better way to carry our throws.(that, and my college semester project is to bring a 3D printed product to market…)
But I need help. I can only think of so many ways to improve this. I want all of you to critique my designs and suggest ways to improve it. Do you have an idea? I want to hear it. Once this holster is nearing completion, I will begin a Beta Test where I will ship out holsters for a reduced cost, in a limited edition color. (Certain famous persons and youtubers may receive a free holster in exchange for a review)
So what do you think? How can I make it better? Of particular value is tools and features in the holster you want to see, opinions on multiple models(a cheaper slimmer version, a
Big toolkit model, ect.), prices you might pay (please be realistic).
Thank you so much for your time!
