Halyards on the Horizon

Given my review of the YYWS Armament there is a good chance that all of you can guess my opinion of YoYo Workshop in general so far.  “Thumbs up” would be an understatement.  Also an understatement would be to say that I am looking forward to the imminent release of the brand new YYWS Halyard.  “Downright excited” would be closer to the mark.  If you haven’t heard about the Halyard, let me briefly fill you in, and rest assured that there will be a full review down the road once I get my hands on it.


Halyards on the Horizon


The Halyard is a bigger yo-yo, and I am guessing that it will be a great complement to the Armament in someone’s collection (like mine).  The Halyard for fun and floaty, and the Armament for light and fast.  The Halyard for learning, and the Armament for performing.  You get the idea.  That is all guesswork on my part right now, and only time will tell.  In any case the more rounded O/V hybrid shape of the Halyard looks great.  Check out the specs below.  Also below is some POV throwing of an early release Halyard from Dwight Daly Jr., one of the YYWS Team players.

The Halyard is expected to hit YoYoExpert in about a month, so get ready!

    I can’t wait! One of my most anticipated throws of the year.
