"OutofHand - Fat Limbo

The Fat Limbo is a reversible yo-yo inspired by designs from the late 90s yo-yo craze. It can switch between three different shapes within seconds, and each configuration has a different gap width ranging from 3 – 3.5mm for different play. The response grooves are filled with clear flowable silicone on both sides.

The weight of the yo-yo feels right for its shape, not too heavy for responsive and not too light for unresponsive. It handles both unresponsive 1A play and modern responsive play. The round shape, which is inspired by the Coca Cola ellipse yo-yo made by Jack Russell Yo-Yos (see the Profile picture in the Jack Russell Professional exhibit), feels soft in hand and fits comfortable in all pockets."

The Fat Limbo was a slightly wider version of the Limbo and was sold only in a very minimal quantity (the yo-yo is not even listed on their website on the "past products" page).

The yo-yo shipped from Norway in a bubble envelope.
