YoYo - Saber Trick
Play with the colors of the past, the Saber Trick brings back the feel of the 90's!
The Saber Trick is the revival of the model that helped launch the 1997-2000 yo-yo boom. The Saber Raider was especially a hit in Japan, and then blew up on the world stage as well.
At the time, Japan's THP (Team High Performance) helped spread the good word of the sport, and were looked up to by many players. The yo-yos of the day were much narrower than they are today, excelling at arch tricks like reach for the moon and over the fence, but also capable of regeneration and trapeze style tricks like brain twister.
Now, more than 20 years later, the landscape of string tricks has changed greatly, but there's still a strong draw to the innocent past of 90's era yo-yo tricks. Many old school THP players and fans still want to be able to bust out the old school flavor, without all the modern gimmicks. Just a handful of plastic was all that we needed to keep entertained all day.
YJ YoYo's owner, Jong Ki also thought this way, and decided to do something about it. "When I was a kid, this was the kind of yo-yo I yearned for," he set this concept to pursue and found a lot of support amongst the Japanese Saber fans. The result is the Saber Trick, a 3D printed model with a nice soft catch while carrying the weight of your childhood on its back.
For the inner parts, the old-school nylon spools and cheap parts have been upgraded to modern metal construction, so the developments of the past decades haven't been lost. But even so, the Saber Trick is designed not just to look like an old school yo-yo, but to play like one too. The sensation of its throw, catch, string feel, and even the strength of its response, are all fine-tuned to feel exactly like the original.
If you were there, you know. And there's a good chance you're itching to feel it again. There's no better way to relive your glory days than with the Saber Trick.
We love the concept: If you could go back to the old days and throw down with the tools of the time and the skills you have today, what could you have accomplished? With the Saber Trick, you have a chance to find out the answer to that big "if."
You can even swap out the bearing for a size C (sold separately) and make it a bind response old school model! This model is not designed to work with a bearing remover tool, so it will require a set of pliers to get the bearing unseated. More information on removing bearings here.
The butterfly version of EASYTRICK.
I made it at the request of YJYOYO's Japanese fans.
If EASYTRICK stimulated nostalgia in the 1990s, butterfly's shape will be cool.
The idea was that it would be wonderful.
While developing SABER TRICK, we remember THP that we longed for as children.
we had a good time. In order to achieve proper performance for THP tricks,
I developed it while testing it.
If you use SABERTRICK well, you can do both simple two-hand and one-hand tricks.
In particular, SHOOT THE MOON trick shows excellent performance.
It also has a sense of weight. If you remember the fun times when you saw THP in the 1990s,
It's a model that makes your heart warm when you grab it.
The 3D production technology of YJYOYO has been mobilized to improve printing technology as well as finishing.
It boasts the highest perfection in 3D yo-yo.
I completed the youtube clip with the yoyo trick mainly used by THP for the purpose of production. I hope you enjoy it.
