From Jake’s instagram:
I can’t believe they’re finally here. This has been a long and stressful journey but I’m proud to announce my first yo-yo ever, the DUNK.
I’ve been yoyoing for 16 years without any kind of signature yoyo. It was always a dream but the timing never worked out. I came back to sharing tricks last year after almost a decade hiatus and got such an amazing response from all of you that I decided now is the perfect time. I’m “retired” but still active in the community and I have enough experience under my belt to know what I want from a yoyo. This is without a doubt my dream yoyo.
I reached out to my friend @cj_atkinson who I grew up with in the yoyo world. I told him my ideas and he made it a reality. @tylerseverance helped me every step of the way and my partner @miklapic kept me sane (and took these amazing photos). The first wave of colors, available directly from me on my website (link in bio), are all my favorite yoyo colors. They are mostly muted earth tones. There is lots of potential for fun half swaps. I think my favorite might be the brown.
The yoyo is slightly undersized with big organic rims and a bumped inner profile where all the center weight lives. It’s incredibly stable without feeling like a rock.
The flat outter rims are laser engraved, inspired by whitewall tires and the Superstars with white painted rims that @johnando and @yuuksta threw back in the day.
The price is $45 USD. It’s as cheap as I can possibly make it because I want everyone to be able to try one without stress. There are plenty of DUNKs for everyone.
Diameter: 54.30 mm
