Rain City - Competition level performance with a comfortable shape!
Rain City is a cool new skill toy company founded by Jeremy "Mr. Yo-Yo Thrower” McKay and his wife Andra! After telling Andra about his trip to visit the One Drop shop in Eugene, she had the brilliant idea of starting up a high end skill toy brand. The idea was to create toys that had a fun and interesting theme and offered players something unique. They combined their skills, Jeremy had the years of experience playing with skill toys and was connected with the community and Andra put her art school degree and years as a professional flow toy entertainer to work! Each toy released by Rain City Skills is the result of collaboration with experts in each field, extensive testing and carefully thought out artistic design.
This return top design is focused on supporting North American industry. Machined by One Drop, Anodized by Gruntbull and assembled with Monkeyfinger bearings, handmade string and snot! This yo-yo represents the North American yo-yo scene in every way!
The Hipster Highlife is a return top built for competition while keeping comfort and style in mind. It has smooth curves a nice rounded profile, and the perfect weight distribution for long spins and stability.
To finish off this 'retro' theme, Rain City designed the hub with a Lego compatible nub; Each throw will ship with a pair of Lego pieces that match the yo-yo theme, as well as spares that will let players tweak the center weight of the throw by adding weight there. And, staying true to it's name, each Hipster Highlife is packaged in a hemp bag inside of a Mason jar, because it doesn't get much more hipster than Mason Jars!
