Caribou Lodge - Michael Kurti Signature Model!
The Igloo is the first signature return top for Michael Kurti, and the second bi-metal release from CLYW!
CLYW owner Chris Mikulin designed the Igloo in close collaboration with Michael Kurti to give him a say in the design every step of the way. Michael worked with Chris to gather up his favorite aspects of CLYW design and the end result is what Kurti says is the best yo-yo he has ever thrown, hands down!
As Michael's tricks have been growing longer and more complicated, he needed equipment that could handle his new concepts and direction. He brainstormed with Chris, came up with some ideas of what he wanted in a yo-yo, and landed on what you see before you - The Igloo! This yo-yo has a beautiful BVM2 inspired profile fused with a powerful bi-metal design to really push the weight distribution and allow for the longest spinning, most stable return top possible within Michael Kurti's preferred specs.
The Igloo brings that classic CLYW feel forward with a new level of performance and a sleek clean look. With a body shape that CLYW fans will love and performance that can handle anything you can think of, the Igloo is the latest leap forward for CLYW!
Slight design changes were made for the Igloo Ver. 2:
- No line in the profile
- Better bearing fit
- Response groove is 0.005" deeper for better binds
