The Grind Machine is an aluminum butterfly model, with adjustable gap, and bearing axle. Totally customizable. It weighs 75.5 grams, but the weight can be customized by the user. The aluminum body sports a polycarbonate lens cap. Not only is the gap adjustable by twisting the halves, but it also comes with an extra set of thick spacers as well. For the response system, it comes with 3 different types of adhesive pads so that a user can select the response system that best fits their playing style.

The pads include the following:
One pair of red response stickers made from No.2 Pencil Eraser with medium to aggressive response; one pair of black stickers made from 3-ply river raft for aggressive response; and one pair of tan stickers made from faux leather for a smooth and forgiving response.

This yo-yo was the first run of the first version, supposedly limited to 98 pieces. Unfortunately, the yo-yo was not serial numbered.
Also came with two extra strings.

Collected December 10, 2003.

Original retail price: $55 US.
