    Dominik loves his SB2 so much, so we decided to work on a classic shape yoyo, a tribute to Tom Kuhn's classic. We finally came up with nothing but the Trvth.

    At this point, there have been two iterations. The first prototype featured an absolutely straight gap profile. But we found it very hard to play with it, cause of the tiny catch zone. So, to increase the playablity just a bit by maintaining an uncompromising design, at least by today's standards regarding 1A yoyos, we decided to make the profile slightly wing-shaped. Actually the SB2 was slightly wing-shaped as well.
    Now, for our second prototype the catch zone is like double the size of the first version. We also increased the overall diameter just a bit to give it more rim weight and spin time.

    Comparison picture: Version 1 - Version 2





    The second prototype features full, state of the art engravings. As you can see, we are kind of going a metal theme here. Its a black yoyo, which leads us to "black metal" of course. Also, you can think of the name and the term "trve metal". The style of the engraving goes along with the heavy metal theme as well. Art work by Clayton V.







    The final release will also be black candodized, just like the prototypes. The engraving is not final at this point, we might tweak it a bit here and there. As a goodie, the final version will come with a special Graou string made just for us.

    We are aiming for a release during second half of 2011.

    Specs:

    Diameter: 55.40mm
    Width: 28.50mm
    Weight: 66.60g
    Response: Hot Red SILYYcone
    Bearing: ILYY KMK 6x13x5mm
    Coating: ILYY Candodize (Black)

    There is also a short teaser video, that features the prototype version 1.

    I don't usually care for black on a yoyo.. but that black is very boltgunny... and I love that... I have a feeling I'll be quite tempted to try one of those out when they drop.

    Too bad the video was a horrible red shade. I couldn't watch it. I will however find a way to get one of these.
