The Museum of Yo-Yo History is a labor of love, and we would not be able to stay up-to-date with exhibits without the support of our sponsors and curators. Big thanks go to One Drop Design and Duncan for supplying us with their latest models, YoYoExpert for their help and support, and to Cody Orr, TotalArtist and YoYoBrothers™ for allowing us to use their collections!

Exhibit #3942
PackagingDisplay Boxed
ConstructionThree piece wood
Diameter59 mm
Width32 mm
GapAdjustable - Twist
OwnerRick Brough

From the playtmbr website:
"Put it together slim for some looping THIS-A-WAY, or with a wider catch zone for string tricks THAT-A-WAY.

I [Colin Leland of TMBR] can't recall a profile that I've obsessed over as much as this one. It's a simple tapered gap, with a rounded rim. One face is tapered at 3/16", the other at 3/32" depth. This creates a perfect blend of spin time, loop capability, response, and stability. Both configurations share a certain feel, but allow for a good amount of difference in play style.

What side are you on?

That's your choice.

Who am I to judge?

Available in deluxe and standard models.
