The classic Roller Woody was NOS (New Old Stock) that first appeared retail on the Tom Kuhn website, April 2017. From a Tom Kuhn email dated March 28, 2017:

"Inspired by this nearly euphoric State of Yo, not to mention warmer days, a rummage through a storage space ensued. After what seemed to have been an eternity, there it was, a box of the old black with silver stripes! After blowing away layers of dust, voila! The old gloss black Roller Woodies look like they were made yesterday."

From the Tom Kuhn website for the Roller Woody:
"Sometimes referred to as the Stradivarius of yo yos, this seemingly traditional classic profiled wooden yo yo is made of solid [not laminated] hard maple wood for its superior stability, durability and weight. This model is coated in pearl white and then enhanced with narrow blue stripe.

Under the hood however, this is the worlds most technologically advanced wooden yo yo. This precision tuned instrument sports a precision ball bearing axle for undreamed of spinners (up to 10 times longer than regular fixed axle yo yos) and a super advanced, patented, adjustable string gap feature for fast tune ups allowing maximum play ability and features Dr Yo’s patented Turbo Disc technology for optimum predictability. A beginner’s confidence will build quickly while more advanced players will blaze new trails in the art of yo-yo play."

Uses a size I ball bearing axle.
