OwnerRick Brough

The Rhinoplasty was the updated, second version of the Minute 2010 made by the Australian boutique yo-yo maker Werrd. [Rick: Which doesn't make sense because Werrd released the Minute again in 2013 with new specifications.]

From the Werrd website:
"The Minute was [Werrd's] first attempt at making an undersized yoyo, and while it played [they] found it to be a little too sharp. So, with the Rhinoplasty [they] shaved down the rims and rounded them to make the yo-yo a lot more comfortable. [Werrd] also upgraded the response area, and gave it their new blueprint Rhino pad response pads. This new system gave the yo-yo enough response for a tight bind every time, but also not grippy enough for it to snap back at you after every bind. The Rhinoplasty is the perfect pocket yo-yo, it’s small enough to carry around without a huge hassle and it can handle any trick that you want to throw its way."

This model was released September 2011 in Australia, but was mostly unknown in North America.

Original retail price: $70 US.
