Hummingbird produced the Pocket Rocket for Tom Kuhn Yo-Yos. These were very striking yo-yos with glowing pearlescent white paint and a bright lime stripe. Brilliant gold foil logos on each side. One of the best fixed axle concaves in it's day.

Pictured here is a Blank, from the liquidation of the Hummingbird factory. It was never stamped, and was kept as a sample for prospective customers.
