The First 7068 Aluminum Yo-Yo – Sengoku Kenshin!


Uesugi Kenshin was a pioneer and one of the most powerful lords of the Sengoku period remembered for his prowess on the battlefield and famed for his honourable conduct and military expertise.

Sengoku, tasked with creating a yo-yo unique and powerful enough to live up to the Kenshin name, sought out a completely new alloy to create their latest design – 7068 Aluminum. 7068 Aluminum is an amazingly strong Aluminum alloy that actually has a better weight/strength ration than grade 5 Titanium! This allows for weight distribution that feels similar to Titanium without the crazy Ti price tag.

The Kenshin is the first mono-metal yo-yo Sengoku has made and it fits perfectly in their lineup alongside all the high performance multi-metal designs. It plays fast, stable, and has a light presence on the string. Comfortable in the hand with a feel that just begs you to keep throwing, the Kenshin is a serious game changer!


This is NOT the ONLY 7068 Aluminum Alloy Yo-Yo!

Sengoku also makes the Forge which is also 7068 Aluminum Alloy.


At least it was the first, and the only other is also made by Sengoku :slight_smile:


It also doesn’t distract how awesome of a yoyo the Kenshin is 8)


Agreed, I love mine. ;D Need to get a Forge sometime.


Good catch! Completely forgot about that one since we haven’t carried it yet. Title changed.
