Doctor Popular - Classic comfortable shape with modern performance!
A brand new yo-yo designed by Doctor Popular. The Icarus!
The Icarus has has a classic profile with a feel in play as light and floaty as it's Greek mythology namesake. It has a nimble feel on the string with plenty of spin power and a super comfortable feel on the catch.
"But, what are those holes for?"
Glad you asked, so did we! Here's DocPop's response - "They are an experiment of sorts. I wanted to see if I could reduce some of the middle weight, leaving more stability in the center and out edges of the yo-yo. I was also hoping to see if the extra air friction from the holes would help keep the loops open during yo-yo “suicides”. But mainly I wanted them there because I think they look awesome."
