The king of fingerspins is back.
I think I get a message every week asking for a metal version of the super successful Skyva. So here it is. Finally.
I wanted something that could exceed performance in all areas. That means more stability. More spin time. And improved fingerspins. The silky smooth Delrin cups almost float around your finger. It feels like butter. Sooo satistfying.
Only 54$. Available in retailers June 29th.
Colors: Space Grey/Silver

This middle-sized full metal yo-yo sports a polygonal body made of 7068 aluminum.
Cold Fire is the first release from Elemental, a new sub-brand of high-end Japanese maker Sengoku. Made from 7068 aluminum, Cold Fire is middle-size with a multi-stepped polygonal inverse round H-profile, and only slightly on the small and light end of the spectrum. With its sharp silhouette, Cold Fire may look aggressive, but it’s designed so that all the surfaces you touch will fall comfortably into your had, and softens the playfeel considerably. With its balance of size, weight, and power, Cold Fire is a very finely made piece of equipment.
Enjoy the gap between how it loks and how it plays, and enjoy the pure power and fun the Cold Fire offers!
A super-undersized bimetal?! You’ll be blown away by its playability.
Mini yo-yos have been a novelty for a long time, popular among collectors and players looking to surprise people. Mini yo-yos haven’t really found their way onto the contest stage, but depending on the player, the smaller the yo-yo the higher the potential for intricate, complex styles and developing new tricks.
In general, physics is not kind to small yo-yos, which tend to lose stability as they are too small and light to keep a long, steady spin. The Masamini is here to change all that.
The concept is it’s a mini version of the Masamune. The body material has been switched to 6061 aluminum to reduce the price. At first, the design was a novel joke, but when they started playing with the prototypes they realized they were on to something much more serious, and set about making this a real product. With the stainless steel rim and its clever placement, the Masamini absolutely defies conventional wisdom, and has truly startling power and stability for a yo-yo this size. Thanks to the bimetal design, the Masamini has some real weight to it, and if you close your eyes with it mounted on the string, you’d swear you were playing with a full size yo-yo. The potential of such power in such a small package is really exciting, and the makers found themselves dreaming up new ways to take advantage of this design.
If you’re looking for an exciting yo-yo to help broaden your horizons, you should pick up the Masamini. It may be small, but it’s fierce!
Taking up the mantle of the Aura and Orbis, Yacare is your new go-to model for fingerspin tricks.
A big bump and inverse round shape give the Yacare an imposing profile with an almost sharp feeling in the hand. The side face is carved out specifically to make it ideal for fingerspin (top-on) style tricks. The Yacare continues the legacy of the Aura and Orbis before it, with each iteration improving on the last. The new side face guides your finger to the center of the yo-yo, making top-on effortless. Even as a first full metal yo-yo, the Yacare is an affordable and excellent choice.
The Kilter 3 is an especially excellent cost-performance model.
Yoyofficer has earned its place in the yo-yo world as the go-to maker for affordable but high-quality yo-yos, and they’re always pushing the limit of quality metal throws. Again, they’ve pushed the envelope even further, and the Kilter 3 is the result. Whether you’re looking for your first metal throw, or if you just want a yo-yo to keep in your bag for casual play, Kilter 3 has got what you need to expand your imagination.
The power is upgraded from version 2, with a sense of weight that transfers into your hand, and cries out “metal!” The power is considerable, and the secret to that is the flat rim design that packs more weight into the wings, and provides the lasting spin you need for those long combos.
Either way, put this power in your corner. For speedy play and electric freestyles, in any scene, give the Kilter a throw.
It’s already been ten years since CLYW released their first yo-yo, the Peak. Made specifically for the contest scene, Peak was the first of many game-changing yo-yos. It wouldn’t be too much to saw that CLYW made itself a major name in the yo-yo world, and helped shaped the evolution of spin-tops. Now, to celebrate its birthday, CLYW is releasing an update to the Peak.
The size hasn’t changed much, but the body is 2 grams lighter than the original. The biggest change to the design is the new low edge on the response area, which look like they take after the Wooly Marmot 1 and 2, but the edge has a slight bump to it, giving a feeling of a higher edge, but still reducing sleep loss. This preserves some of the playfeel of the original Peak.
With its great feeling and high potential for the contest stage, the Peak 2 lives up to its namesake.
The Peak, the iconic first return top ever released by CLYW, set the bar for metal return tops upon its release. Crashing web stores and driving collectors insane with each quickly sold out release, the Peak was the flagship model of CLYW, and the design that launched the company.
Ten years later, we’ve cleaned it up, brought it up to modern play standards, and we’re bringing it back for a whole new generation of players to enjoy.
The Peak 2 features that same shape you all know and love, with design changes to the bearing seat and response area, and a shift in weight distribution to make it play even smoother and floatier. The ultimate carry-around return top, the Peak 2 is everything you were hoping for and more.
POM and Stainless come together to create a marriage of softness with a metal ring.
C3 liked this soft POM body they put a ring on it! This is C3’s first composite yo-yo, and they’ve brought all their expertise to the table to ensure it retains the smooth playfeel of their current lineup.
Slightly larger than the body is wide, the addition of the steel ring adds a power-up that spins Gamma Crash with incredible power. The softness of POM with the power of metal gives you the control and speed of top-end bimetal yo-yos, with the soft catch of light plastic yo-yos.
Although they aren’t using metal for the body, they machined the POM (also known as engineering plastic) just the same, so it still has the high-end feel of a machined yo-yo. We’d really like you to taste the balance of weight and ease of use the Gamma Crash offers. C3 has sought to overcome the barriers of mixing new materials and techniques to bring you the best yo-yos, and the best of both worlds.
Contrail is C3’s latest and greatest off string yo-yo, the second signature model for 4A world champion, Rei Iwakura.
There are many genres of off string play, and this yo-yo was designed as the perfect all-arounder, for beginners all the way to expert players. As Rei’s second signature model, it’s important to point out that the Contrail’s concept varies wildly from the dead-stable spin of the Flawless.
The body shape is based on a combination of the Flawless and the Aura, and machined from the same POM plastic material. It has the same catch zone as the Neo Solar, with a similarly rounded low-edge as the Orbit and Toss, making it easier to maintain balance during play through endless regenerations, while the body is so well balanced that even a light throw can be highly playable. C3 has considered everything an off string player could want, and given it to us. The Contrail is easy to throw and easy to hit tricks with.
For casual play or competitive play, performances, training, and trick creation, you can’t go wrong with this one. The Contrail is our new favorite recommendation.
Please note that the axle thickness has been stepped up for added toughness and durability.
The Master Galaxy, now five years old, has been recast in 7075 Aluminum!
As the name implies, the Remaster Galaxy is the updated version of C3’s first popular wide-bodied full metal yo-yo, the Master Galaxy. The size and shape are mostly untouched, but thanks to the change of materials, the new body is a full 3 grams lighter. Coupled with the dense feeling of 7075 Aluminum and the weight distribution focusing on power and stability, the Remaster is even more stable during play than its predecessor.
When we call it a “wide body,” we aren’t joking; the Remaster is so wide it spills out of adult hands. But it’s not just for looks; the wide design increases your string hits so that you can pull of insane speedy combos and influent-style tricks without even looking.
The “Petal Dance” colorway is Simpson Wong’s design, the “Pegasus” design is the signature colorway for C3’s Chinese sponsored member, Ma Yi, and has their logo engraved on the side face.
