They look beautiful; love the severed arm design. I’d love to bust my knuckles up with one of them :smiley: what type of response Do you guys use?

Aaaaagh! Want one so badly, but I always wait for a big order so that shipping makes sense for me. Darn you DS Pride, where are you? :wink:


I have one of these winding it’s way towards me. I’m really excited because this is my first fixed-axle. I loved the comments that these may have some weight behind them - this is what made me pull the trigger, oh and also they just look stunning. I can’t wait to give one a throw.

they look so… right.

Just wanted to give a little update on my new Currier. First off, I think this is a thing of beauty (cherry and grape variety). It is really well carved, well shaped and is worked to be incredibly smooth in the hand. The shape is actually really good - something that also helped maneuver me towards this purchase. It plays much smoother than I was anticipating for a wood throw as well, and as yet I have had no knots that have caused me too much grief with it not being able to be taken apart. The real point I wanted to raise here though is that mine is almost 100% unresponsive out-of-the-sleeve (ie. box). With neutral string tension it is very difficult to get the throw to return without binding, to the point where I have given up and simply bind every time. This applied to the string the throw came with, and it’s even closer to completely unresponsive with YYE 100% cotton which is what I’m using now. In itself this is not a problem, but without the ability to change the axle setup this is something one should be aware of before purchasing. An example of the unresponsive nature of this throw is that I can happily pull off Kwijibo and have never had the yoyo return to me during the trick. Again not necessarily a problem but something one should be conscious of.

Brand new editions of the Currier are up on YYE now!

Glad to see more stock here! Soon as I have money I’m going to add a Hildy Bros throw or 2 to my collection.

@yooldman…so jealous of the multi-ply Currier!

If you don’t mind, how much does the Emmett weigh?

The multi-ply Currier not only looks great, it also plays great.

My Emmett tips the scales at a healthy 62.9 grams.

Thanks, yooldman! That’s nice and solid, and a guarantee of no splinters is sometimes nice. :slight_smile:

Thanks yooldman ( I think you might have the best collection of our throws)! We are working on more multi-tone yoyos.
