Looking for the ultimate in high end, high performance, limited edition yoyos? Look no further, because you've found it. The Ricochet yoyo from YoyoFactory is the first ever machined titanium body yoyo that we are aware of. Probably because it is so expensive to make!
Unlike other "novelty" yoyos that don't even work right, this is a true high performance, non-responsive yoyo that will blow you away with its comfortable shape, super long spin times, and incredible balance. Not to mention the sweet metallic titanium look. YoyoFactory even made a "raw titanium" finish option, if you want to make sure that everyone can see what your yoyo is made of. This is a numbered, limited edition yoyo. YoyoFactory only made 500, and we only were able to procure a small number of them. When they sell out, we won't be able to get more of this model again, according to YoyoFactory. The number of each yoyo is printed on the side. Will they ever make any other titanium yoyo again at all? They aren't saying.
The Ricochet Titanium yoyo comes in a really nice looking plastic display box, and it includes an extra concave, wide, C type bearing, as well as a YoyoFactory yoyo tool, and two strings. We recommend that you buy extra string to go with it, because you definitely don't want to use this yoyo with a worn string and risk breaking it and sending the yoyo flying!
So let's go into the whole thing about the meaning of non-responsive, so rich dudes who don't know how to yoyo and just want to buy something really expensive don't freak out when the yoyo "doesn't wake up when I tug on the string!!?!!?!" With non-responsive yoyoing, the yoyo isn't supposed to wake up. The only way to make the yoyo return to your hand is by doing a bind -- a special kind of string trick that jams the string back into the gap of the yoyo and forces it to come back to your hand. If you don't know how to bind, expect to spend some time learning how to do it.
If you are buying a yoyo, don't forget to buy a yo-yo trick book to carry with you, a yoyo trick DVD for at home, and extra yoyo strings. Learning new tricks makes yoyoing much more fun, and you'll need extra strings, because they wear out with regular use.
