Hi guys Palli here, I know I haven’t been active on forums for the past years but I’m going to try to change that and I think it’s an important thing as an new manufacturer.
For those who don’t know me. I’ve been a part of the community for a long time now(16years).
I was a big part of innovating a lot of modern stable yoyo tricks of today including Grindwinders/tornado binds, advanced folding gates, Tons of follow slack variations and technical hat tricks(If you are fans of Paul Kerbel then know I inspired him to do them ).
I was also one of the first members of team CLYW joining back in 2009 and quitting in 2018 to work on my own stuff and give up a spot for the new generation of throwers. Together with them I worked on the widely beloved Puffin series which had 3 models and gave input on a lot of their designs.
In 2017 I was the head organizer the World Yoyo Contest in Iceland, the biggest yoyo event of the year.
Reykjavik Return Tops is a new company based in Reykjavik, Iceland and is a solo project run by me where I make all the designs and graphics myself, minus upcoming collaborations . Since Icelanders are the country closest to being Vikings I decided to make all of my work inspired by old nordic themes, gods and stories.
I released my first solo project, Ragnarok last year and sales could’ve definitely been better. Yoyoexpert has still plenty in stock so I’ll need to work on my US fanbase, on the other hand it sold really well overseas in Japan. It’s an absolutely fantastic 7075 throw with me only hearing positive things from people that have tried one out and I’m currently working on ways to reduce my pricing for future releases.
You can check out the specs and order one right here:
This year Covid19 hit pretty hard and has delayed my next projects severely but currently I have a brand new bi-metal in production which should be released in the upcoming month.
Let me introduce Mjolnir, a 7068+SS bi-metal.
Why Mjolnir? Because when I traveled Japan last year I wen’t to multiple yoyo meetings where I had the prototype with me and the most common reaction I’d get was “WHOA So much power”.
This yoyo was designed as a complete powerhouse, with an incredibly wide catch zone. It’s final weight is around 66grams so it won’t move as fast as some of the lighter bi-metals but if you are a fan of one throw freestyles and incredible stability and power then this is a yoyo to consider. It’ll come in brown with gold rims, dark blue with Raw rims and a secret FIST SALUD version which I’ll unveil later.
If you guys have some question feel free to leave them here on the thread and I’ll be glad to answer
