Off Topic: In Aichi, Japan, where the REWIND main office is, we have a professional baseball team called the “Chunichi Dragons,” so every time I see the name NINE Dragons, it looks like “Dragons Nine” (what we call the starting members for the Dragons team). Haha, yeah that was TOTALLY off topic… 😛


Cerevo 7-Magic Preorder

At long last, the light-up yo-yo that you didn’t know was possible will soon be released!

Make way for Cerevo’s 7-Magic!

7-magic_01-660x440

The 7-Magic is a super bright light-up yo-yo with programmable LED with C3yoyodesign’s Initiator as its base.

It is equipped with 21 super bright LED lights on each side, which you can program for timing, color, and patterns, through your bluetooth-enabled computer.

It comes with two sets of spacers, a set for looping (same as the regular Initiator) and a set for sleeping (setting for regular play).

This is a sample performance of all the things the 7-Magic can do.

BLACK, one of the world’s most well-known yo-yo performers, helped with the development of the 7-Magic. In the video above, he used the 7-Magic in his brand-new show.

After performing in KURIOS, a Cirque du Soleil show, BLACK set his sights on expanding the possibilities of yo-yo. This project became possible through Black’s collaboration with the CEO of Cerevo, and after months of development it’s now on its way to becoming one of the most innovative yo-yos in the scene.

You can preorder Cerevo’s 7-Magic now!

We are now taking preorders. Once we receive the yo-yos from the maker we will ship them out. We expect to be able to ship within the month of November. If you order any other items with this yo-yo, everything in your order will be shipped together after we receive the 7-Magic. We recommend ordering the 7-Magic separately from other items if you need them sooner.

Note: The yo-yo is designed to be used within Japan. Any use of this yo-yo outside of Japan will be out of maker’s customer support/warranty. Please use the yo-yo at your own risk.



[IMPORTANT] Shipping Price Change & Introducing “International ePacket”

epacket

As of June 1, 2016, the Japan Post Office changed their pricing drastically for EMS which we mainly use. We have offered as-low-as-possible shipping rates to our customers for years, yet, with this change, we will no longer be able to offer the same deal.

As of last Saturday, we started offering a new shipping option called “International ePacket.” This is a newly introduced service by the Japan Post Office made to help facilitate this age of Internet shopping. International ePacket comes with insurance and tracking, but is more affordable than EMS, and is still faster than regular airmail or SAL service.

Official Web Site for International ePacket:
https://www.post.japanpost.jp/int/service/epacket_en.html

Thanks to ePacket pricing, we can now offer an even lower shipping cost to our customer for as low as $7 to all of Asia, and $9 to the US, Canada, Australia and Europe.

We will still have a free shipping option for orders over $200 with International ePacket.

Also, we will keep an EMS option for our customers who seek faster and more secured shipping, for $18.

Please see our “For the First-Time Customers” page for more details.
