You all remember the narrow Pocket Pros Zombie that came out a couple years ago, right? A $15 aluminum narrow width, large diameter wing-shaped yoyo? Just the other day, I was at a local Big 5 picking up something and couldn’t help it but stop at their minimal amount of yoyos they had…and noticed something strange about the Zombie yoyo. These were no longer the Auldey Grey Fox’s they were originally. This time, they were modified shaped, thicker rims and whatnot…it made me wonder, why they switched out designs and went to what looks similar (a little more rounded) to a Small Minds Zombie. I haven’t bought one of these yet but curiosity has struck.
I really doubt they would be any good for anything except the basic tricks and can’t imagine it looping for nothing as it still retains a gap about the same width as a Freehand or any other 1A yoyo. Has anyone else tried or noticed the revisited/reshaped Zombie? They look like the bearing size shrunk down to an A-size bearing. Also looking, it looks like the silicone recess was designed for a C-sized bearing and is rather narrow, being about the width and size of a YYJ O-ring. Looks way too far from the dinky bearing it has.
Side note: These were the only images I found of the newly shaped Zombie, I made my best efforts to make it ‘brand free.’ Admins: If you feel they should be removed anyway, feel free.
