Circa 2011 release of the Tom Kuhn Wood Rocks natural maple wood fixed axle (non take apart) yo-yo. Came with extra strings and a Tom Kuhn Wood Rocks instruction booklet. It even came (finally) in Tom Kuhn-branded packaging, not BC YoYo-branded packaging like so many Tom Kuhn No Jive 3 in 1 releases from the past. This model was a quintessential original school Tom Kuhn Flying Camel-shaped, non-modular yo-yo.

Side A has the printed three color "Wood Rocks" logo. The 3-point text above the logo says, "Proudly made in the USA - Tom Kuhn Custom Yo-Yos". The 3-point text below the logo says, "FAS certified rock maple wood". FAS (short for First and Seconds) -- not FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) which is a green-based certification -- is the highest of the eight hardwood lumber grades in use today. Side B has two overlapping V characters with one V right-side up and the other V upside down, overlapping the upright V. It is not clear what the design on side B was supposed to be; it is completely nonsensical. The side B design suggests that it may have served as a placeholder text design, similar to how "lorem ipsum" is sometimes used in print production. In such case, it is possible that the yo-yo is a prototype.

Original retail price: $10 US
