The Rook Launch

So it would appear that hot on the heels of the latest Octavia titanium yo-yo restock is another titanium throw on the verge of launching into the wild.  This time it is The Rook from 2SickYoyos, and as it happens The Rook launch is scheduled for 8pm EST tomorrow, February 28.

I have yet to try any of the throws from 2Sickyoyos, but the other folks in the throwing community speak highly of the yo-yos from Joey Serrano.  Just from the specs and the look of The Rook, I have a sneaking suspicion that it will do quite well for itself and 2Sickyoyos.  It has a nice looking albeit fairly uncomplicated V-type shape to it, and there will be some colourized version available in addition to the standard raw titanium version.  Retail price is set at $300 according to The Rook’s store page on YoYoExpert.  From what I understand there will also be some available directly from the 2Sickyoyos store.
