New Sengoku Nobunaga! Releases Friday!


#1

Sengoku is a new company based in Nagakute, Japan creating some amazing high performance yo-yos with a cool story. The name Sengoku is an era in Japanese history when the country was in an internal war of samurai clans, finished only when Japan was unified by the Shogun. Keeping this history in mind, Sengoku is naming their yo-yos after the most notable Samurai leaders, and the first yo-yo is the Nobunaga!

Nobunaga was among the most powerful of the samurai that initiated the unification of Japan, so it only makes sense that the Nobunaga yo-yo is an extremely powerful yo-yo with a bi-metal design that will meet the highest levels of performance!

Sengoku designed the Nobunaga to really take advantage of the bi-metal design. With the stainless steel rings making up more than half the weight of the Nobunaga, you get an extremely rim heavy weight distribution that provides a powerful spin and extraordinary stability and spin time. The yo-yo is slightly undersized as well which really plays to its strengths. The smaller v-shaped design keeps a very maneuverable and fast feel without sacrificing any performance.

Sengoku has done a phenomenal job with their first design and we cannot wait to see what comes next! Pick up a Nobunaga and feel the power behind true bi-metal design!

Releasing May 22 @ 9AM EST!
