This is a special edition run (39 total) on The Executive with nickel plating. The yo-yo was made by One Drop yo-yos of Eugene, Oregon. It came in a nice presentation box. Body is made from 6061 aluminum with One Drop's Pyramatte finish added. Uses One Drop Flow Groove pads for the response and a size C stainless steel ball bearing. Came with three Candy Wire strings. The special two-color anodizing was done by the company GruntBull Anodizing of Gettysburg, Ohio.

This nickel plated run of The Executive packs the same punch as the original, but with a sharp new look and 2 grams more weight compared to the original that was 54 grams. This release was made available on January 23, 2018 at 12:00 p.m. PST and were only available on DoctorPopular.com. Included with the yo-yo was a matching “flying yo-yo” enamel pin and a single yo-yo string handmade by Doc Popular, a DocPop Flying Yo-Yo sticker, and a mini comic made by Doc Popular on how he got into yo-yos. The nickel plated version was only available at https://doctorpopular.com/?product=nickel-plated-executive-yo-yo for $83 each, plus $5 shipping.
A purple and orange version, released a several days later, for $75 each, but were only available from http://yoyosf.bigcartel.com/product/the-executive. Then, about the same time, yoyoexpert.com began selling a red version.

The Executive is a high quality, ball bearing yo-yo in a mini-size. It’s approximately 2″ by 1.5″, which is almost half the size of most top selling yo-yos. For something so small, it’s amazing how well these things play. They take advantage of modern design and non-response yo-yo play to really pack a punch.

Collected January 26, 2018.

Original retail price: $83 US.

The yo-yo is brand new and never been used. However, the picture shows a "smudge" of some kind that was not removable.
