Mile High YoYo Club -   Organic Shaped With a D-Sized Bearing YoYo!   

In September 2022, during Dave's recovery from a severe heel injury, he discussed with his friend Nathan the characteristics of an ideal yoyo design that surprisingly seemed nonexistent - an undersized organic D-bearing yoyo with a schmoove groove in the response, a thumb grind lip, and a hub suitable for perfect long fingerspins.

Additional requirements included artwork from John Higby mirroring the club logo Mile High Yoyo Club) and design assistance from Patrick Dressel. The project, named "The Gnome," progressed smoothly after receiving positive responses from John and Patrick.

Despite minor adjustments needed for the fingerspin dimple in the prototypes, the final result aligned perfectly with Dave's vision, showcasing a club yoyo crafted from 7068 Aluminum, featuring an undercut rim for enhanced spin time and stability, a stylized schmoove in the response area, and a fingerspin-friendly dimple. As a nod to Dave's Stormtrooper hobby with the 501st Legion, the "Gnometrooper" variation was also introduced.

The amazing Gnome Trooper artwork was done by Nathan Bottcher aka yoyoretro on our YYE Forums! - Hi Nathan! :)
