Good Life YoYos - John Wolfe signature throw!
From Good Life: The DGTZR (pronounced digitizer) is John Wolfe’s signature throw. If you haven’t seen any of John’s winning national 5a routines there’s a good chance you’ve seen him slinging string making up new 1a tricks online, and if you haven't - Go take a look now!
When we first talked to him about a signature yoyo some of his favorites were the Mantra and the Gully, but having a throw that’s nimble enough for 5a and stable enough for 1a was ultimately the goal. Taking notes from our previous designs we started prototyping, and a couple tries later we knew we had something good. weighing in at 66.8 grams the DGTZR is on the heavier side for a bimetal but moves quickly even through dense tricks. We find the added weight and shape give it that nice nimble feel for 5a, stability for 1a, and generally feels good in hand/ on throw when playing casually.
When John isn’t yoyoing he spends a lot of his time doing digital embroidery work, which has been a big inspiration for this project. The name “DGTZR” refers to the program John uses to make images into machine embroidery, also known as “digitizing.”
The DGTZR is quickly becoming a favorite for the team and can handle almost any style of play. We’re stoked to be working closely with John on his yoyo and get the DGTZR into more hands!
