Jeffrey Pang (the creator of Skyva):
I have been working on this project for the past 6 months. There has
been many customers that have asked me to produce an aluminum version
of the Skyva. I wanted to take it a step further to produce something
that would be a better performer in all aspects - both as a yoyo and
in fingerspin performance.
The outside shape has been rather unchanged. Nearly the same profile
as the plastic Skyva. The body itself has been machined from 6061
aluminum. We used a very very fine media blast technique that feels
super slick and premium. You'll understand when you hold it for the
first time - it feels awesome even when its not spinning. The aluminum
body makes for a completely different weight distribution with much
more stability and spin time.
One of the enemies of fingerspin style tricks is the friction between
your finger and the hub. Admittedly, both polycarbonate and aluminum
aren't bad when it comes to friction reduction, but we wanted to take
it to the next level. Anyone who has felt delrin before knows how
buttery smooth it feels. Having owned many delrin throws in the past -
I knew this super slick material was the way to go for the fingerspin
The packaging needs no introduction. A new matte dark colorway with
corresponding black string creates a unique unboxing experience.
Returning is the black elastic band and foam cutout - the little
things that set us apart.
