OwnerRick Brough

A miniature version of the Tom Kuhn RD-1. A wooden ball bearing butterfly, but reduced in size. Uses an uncommon size I bearing (.125" x .312" x .140"); take apart design, and Tom Kuhn-branded "Turbo Disk" fabric response pads. It was touted as having "big play in a small package". Similar dull banalities are claimed by every manufacturer of mini, undersized yo-yos. Came with a wooden, black high-rise display stand and installed weight rings.

The upper portion of the once clear plastic packaging has turned orange over time. This discoloring was most likely caused by a degradation reaction between the plastic and the yo-yo itself. The yo-yo was stored away from any light source.

Collected October 9, 2004.
