It’s like the Night Moves is all grown up! This new masterpiece bears a midship weight, and is ready for primetime in “Florida.”
The NM9 arrives right at the heart of the story, and rather than long sleep or speed, in an unprecedented concept it is designed for “Florida.”
Out of respect for YoYoJam, who had an everlasting impact on the yo-yo contest scene, Sturm Panzer pays homage with their design of the NM9, which incorporates reimagined design elements of the high-end Night Moves series, which pioneered bimetal designs before the name existed. Even the name is a tribute to the Night Moves, with 9 representing the 9th edition story book that comes with it.
The body contains a midship weight, which became a trademark of YYJ’s designs in their final years. Although Sturm Panzer has continued making their bimetal yo-yos with size D bearings, they switched to the Jam Large (size C) bearings for this model, out of respect for the original. They hope to give a taste of “Florida” to the nostalgic and those who weren’t able to be there in years past. We recommend using thinner string with this yo-yo, such as the 100% poly the String type 6.
At the end of the book is a special article about the Night Moves series, from the very first model to the famous phantom Night Moves 8.

The WY-008 PAKFA is an undersized Stealth Ogre with a size D bearing.
The Stealth Ogre lives on! Mass production has begun, and the the new WY-008 PAKFA maintains the Stealth Ogre’s silhouette with a considerable size-down. The size D bearing used places the WY-008 in the undersized genre.
With larger, mid-sized yo-yos becoming the mainstream, naturally the demand for yo-yos in other sizes diminishes. The PAKFA refuses to be held back by its size, and much like the noisy cricket from Men in Black, it shows us what an undersized weapon is capable of. Sturm Panzer insists that the real power of the PAKFA is the bimetal design and size D bearing, which creates a weight balance that leaves the PAKFA spinning furiously for days. Compared to monometal designs, Sturm Panzer is taking a different angle at the undersized weight class.
For players who aren’t used to undersized throws, to dismiss the PAKFA too quickly would be a mistake. Rather, the PAKFA shows you just what undersized yo-yos are capable, giving you the same spin as a much larger yo-yo with crazy good mobility. We’re sure you’ll be captivated by the PAKFA!
Since the PAKFA is deployed to the military in the storybooks, the coloring is particularly sharp and professional.
The PAKFA set comes with Sturm Panzer Storybook 8 (A5 size, 44 pages).
