At the time, this model of yo-yo was "the industries first and only 24-carat gold yo-yo and yo-yo stand." Matching standing was sold separately. Came packaged in a plastic case, with a royal blue velvet carrying bag, two strings, a metal ballbearing axle, and a metal fixed axle, both interchangeable.

The Golden Eye also came in a concave shape as well, known as the "Golden Fly".

At the time that this yo-yo was released (along with many other Custom yo models), it was sold under the brand name "Custom Yo-Yo" and manufactured by Mesa Custom Machining Corporation of Gilbert Arizona.

As of August, 2015, this yo-yo was still being sold but under the "Custom Products" brand, and still manufactured by Mesa Custom Machining.

Original retail price for yo-yo: $80 US.
Original retail price for matching stand: $40 US.
