The American Spinner "Pocket Rocket" from around 1988 or 1989 was a one piece wooden yo-yo that was actually made in Sweden by Halvorsen. The same company that made so many of the wooden yo-yos that were sold in Canada in the 60s and 70s. The body shape and dimensions of this model are identical to the Canadian National Olympic and National Pro Tournament models from the 70s.


The quality of this model was not as good compared to the Standard and Collector models from American Spinner. The pocked gold seal and imperfect rim area is typical for the Halvorsen yos. Still, this model is quite hard to find anymore (2017).
