Exceedingly rare now, the 'Clean Machine' is simply an unstamped, uncoated No Jive 3-in-1 yo-yo. Many have found their way into the hands of the general public, usually via direct dealings with the manufacturer. Being rare, and now discontinued, they are difficult to locate, especially in good condition. In play, many players prize Clean Machines, which feature the construction, quality, and balance of the No Jive with the feeling and response of raw maple.

A select few Clean Machines from 1998 were made across the wood's grain (as in the bottom example).
