YYE Forum Members,
This is YoYo Workshop. New Jersey and Connecticut residents Wayne Ryan & Dave Albano, who are two lifetime friends and long time mechanical engineers, have designed their first 6061 T6 Aluminum yoyo. Prepare to throw down long and hard with ‘The Tornad-Yo’ !!!
The Tornad-Yo is a mid-sized, high-wall, uniquely-shaped yoyo designed to spin long and stable. Production on prototype models has already begun. YYE Forum member England1414 will be anodizing these for us, and we’ll even take custom anodizing orders. We expect that the prototype run will be ready for packaging and distribution during the first week of March 2014. Keep an eye out.
The prototype run of The Tornad-Yo will be limited to 10 yoyos.
