The new Tom Kuhn No Jive 3 in 1 Optic Star yoyo is a take apart hardwood maple yoyo with an intricate laser carved design on the outside of the yoyo. Like the original Tom Kuhn No Jive 3 in 1, you can assemble this yoyo three different ways. As a standard imperial shaped yoyo, as a flared gap yoyo, and as a "humpback" with one side flared gap and the other side the regular way.
The new Optic Star is an improvement on the old Mandela yoyo that Tom Kuhn no longer makes. One of the coolest features of the yoyo is the silver hex nut with an infinity logo, which is supposed to symbolize Tom Kuhn's endless pursuit of the finest quality, design and product integrity. We suspect that like the previous Mandela, it will probably become a collector's item over time. This is a wooden axle yoyo, which lets you perform all of your favorite classic yoyo tricks just like they did in the 1950s.
Each order includes: 1 Original Wooden Optic Star yoyo, 32 page "Pumping Wood" instruction manual, 1 replaceable extra Wood Axle, 5 Extra Strings
Tom Kuhn yoyos have been called the "Stradivarius of yo-yos" and have been featured in window displays of designer stores from Milan to Tokyo to New York. Known as the "father of the modern yo-yo," Tom Kuhn innovations have spurred dramatic change and development in the art of yoyo play. Tom Kuhn designed the world's largest yoyo that had to be thrown with a crane, and also supplied the only yoyo to be used in space on a NASA mission.
