YoYoFactory a-May-zing B-Grade Sale 2019

YYF’s B-Grade sale was a huge hit last year, and this year it will be available on REWIND WORLDWIDE too!

There are many new, limited, rare, and even unreleased models.

Sale starts on May 8 at 10pm (Japan Time)!

Don’t miss this rare occasion to grab your favorite YYF yo-yos at a very low price!

“What is B-Grade?”
In 2009, YoYoFactory started selling a selection of “outlet” items at events. Calling them “B-Grades,” that name has spread throughout the yo-yo world, and is now a common term.
At B-Grade sales, you can pick up excellent yo-yos with mild imperfections, discolorations, marks or scratches. These make them less desirable as finished products, but they’re still great yo-yos and totally playable, meaning you can get a high quality throw for a bargain price. As a result, B-Grade sales have become very popular.

“What kinds of B-Grades are there?”
The majority of B-Grades have small discolorations or cosmetic blemishes from the anodization process. These are known as “C-Types,” whereas yo-yos that are not perfectly balanced and have some vibes are called “V-Types.” Some may have both types of imperfection; it’s always good to double check

Important Points:
B-Grades are outlet products because for one reason or another they haven’t met the maker’s standards for their products, things to look out for include:
-color imperfections, finish may look dull or scratched
-bearing or response pads aren’t well installed or working properly. Often, switching out these parts will address these issues.
-Bearings or pads may differ from the standard product model.
-Artwork or logos may differ from the standard model.
-Other issues may exist, but nothing so bad as to make the yo-yo unplayable.

Skull Fire Series #1 C3yoyodesign – KROWN, released on April 18, 10pm Japan Time!

The first model for the Skull Fire Series we just announced yesterday will be C3yoyodesign’s KROWN!

Originally, Hong Kong 3A Champion, Ng Wang Kit from Team C3yoyodesign gave us the idea for this Skull Fire series. He often tells us that he is a fan of Kazuki and wanted to get Kazuki’s signature yo-yo! (Thank you, Ng Wang Kit!)

Right now at REWIND, we recommend KROWN as a player’s first full metal yo-yo. It’s well-balanced, and especially the new version is very high performance, yet also very affordable and good for 3A and 5A.

I use KROWN daily, especially when I’m at home. It’s very comfortable to play with.

It has a very light feeling despite its weight, and a soft feeling due to its finely blasted surface which Shinya also loves. I can enjoy playing with this yo-yo without any feeling of stress.

I used to compete with the very first version of KROWN, and when I tried the latest version, it reminded me of that great feeling I had with the first one.

This new KROWN carries the legacy of the KROWN series as well as all of the knowhow C3yoyodesign has gained throughout their amazing 10 years of operation.

I felt that “I want everyone to use!” so we asked C3yoyodesign and they accepted our offer very kindly.

We explained the motif and logo image and Doro from C3yoyodesign made this amazing logo design! Thank you!!!

If you don’t have any of the newest KROWN, please grab one, and if you already have one, consider adding this special limited design to your collection!

New product series “Skull Fire Series.” from REWIND

Hi, everyone! This is Kazuki Okada, REWIND’s store manager.

Today, I would like to introduce a new product series from REWIND.

Every week, we introduce several new models and colorways at REWIND.
Nowadays, almost all yo-yos play great and we try our best to introduce models to our customers to best match their unique needs. However, we still hear a lot of “I cannot choose!” and “What do you recommend?” from customers.

As REWIND store manager, I have been wondering what we can do and have discussed this with the other REWIND staff members. During that time, a yo-yo brand owner told us that “One of our team members is a big fan of Kazuki and he wants us to make a Kazuki limited version yo-yo.” Also, some customers asked things like “I want Kazuki’s recommended yo-yos!” and “Are there any Kazuki signature yo-yos?”

Therefore, we decided to make a limited yo-yo series with my personal choices!

Not only yo-yos to be used in competition, but I will also choose them based on themes like “Models I use in daily life,” “I want to use!” “Such a great model!“ “I want everyone to try!” etc.

The design motif is “Skull” and “Fire” which is my favorite. We will call it the “Skull Fire Series.” Depending on the model or brand, the logo and color can be the same or different, but all the motifs will be “Skull & Fire.”

I will choose the model for that specific time, so basically one model will be a single production with no re-releases or reproductions for that same model. We plan to release a few models a year.

We will announce the first Skull Fire Series model soon. Please make sure to follow our social media so you don’t miss it!
