yoyofriends - Sunbird
Based on the Hummingbird, this monometal deftly imitates its older brother.
While the naming and design of the Sunbird are a direct nod to the Hummingbird, the construction and concept of this model are different. A monometal 7068 aluminum body, and if you look closely it's just a bit larger overall with an added 1.7 grams of weight. At first glance it may look like a Hummingbird without its stainless steel weight, but at first throw you realize the different kind of performance this yo-yo is capable of. Those tiny differences you can barely notice are the result of extra fine-tuning yoyofriends went through to make the Sunbird shine on its own. Thanks to this adjustment, during play there's no sense of separation between your hands and the yo-yo, deepening your flow state.
Like a bird perched on a thin branch, the Sunbird straddles a fine line between being a lightweight yo-yo and having the perfect sense of mass during play. That sweet sensation is definite the Sunbird's standout feature.
Sunbird is the monometal version of the popular hummingbird. Sunbird not only captures the essence of hummingbird with incredible acceleration and speed, but also adds more flow from the monometal weight distribution. Sunbird also has a wider catchzone than its bimetal counterpart for increased catch-ability and it will zoom across with the greatest of ease no matter what kind of yoyo player you are.
