Revolution Enterprises 3 Sweet Loops & 5 strings
Exhibit #3913
ConditionMint in Package
OwnerRick Brough

Revolution Enterprise's Sweet Loops was the company's answer to finger pain caused by the yo-yo string. The package contained three Sweet Loops and five strings. The back of the packaged explained how to string the finger loop.

On September 5, 2000, Joseph R. Hadzicki of Coronado, CA, and David H. Hadzicki of Poway, CA were awarded U.S. patent 6113456 - Ultra performance modular yo-yo with string finger guard. The string finger guard (aka Sweet Loop) was used on Revolution's Rev G graphite yo-yo in 1999.
