Here is another interesting bit of news that I noticed last night via Instagram, and then saw again both on the /r/Throwers Subreddit (which I really recommend becoming a part of) and the YoYoExpert forums. 2SickYoYos is on the verge of releasing their next yo-yo, dubbed the Knight, which is a nice looking rounded V-type bi-metal throw. Here are the specs in case you are interested:
- Weight: 63 grams
- Diameter: 56 mm
- Width: 44 mm
- Bearing: Size C center trac
- Pad: Red silicone
You can see more details about the Knight over on the 2SickYoYos Intagram if you are interested in reading more.
I really don’t know that much about 2SickYoYos other than it is the brainchild of Joey Serrano. The yo-yos are based on chess pieces, and you might be familiar with some of the previous releases like the Queen and the Bishop. My ignorance not withstanding, the Knight looks to be a great USA-made yo-yo and I for one will be keep an eye on it. The 2SickYoYos Knight is slated to release sometime in November with a price tag of $150 or so.
