The BC/What's Next Spitfire, No. 102 was a fixed axle, all wood yo-yo made especially for looping. Black body with a red stripe on the inner walls and partial outside diameter of the rim area. A fire-breathing dragon was part of the new logo for the No. 102 version.

The Spitfire was reminiscent of the popular plastic Jack Russell Coke yo-yo that had a wooden axle, a raised face, and semi-flat rims–a favorite looping yo-yo of 1996 World Yo-Yo Champion Dale Myrberg. Dale helped Brad Countryman of BC/What's Next make the Spitfire design come to fruition. This version of the Spitfire was released about 2003-2004 and was the last Spitfire model released by BC/What's Next before going out of business. Its very limited release–for unknown reasons–has made it quite hard to find now (2021).
