Rain City - Entry level responsive yoyo.
From Rain City: We regularily get requests for a beginner plastic yoyo. People who love Rain City Skills want a beginner yoyo to suggest to people.
$10k and 2000 minimum order. You have to pay for a mold, then make a minimum of 2000 yoyos, 500 per colour. We aren't that big yet.
So I went with an option that had been done by many yoyoers and companies over the years - licensing (rebranding) someone else's design. Specifically the Magic Yoyo One Third. The one third is the yoyo I've been using to reach school kids for a few years now. So I got 500 made in rain city Blue!
But I really wanted to avoid people who don't read descriptions saying "hey, that guy ripped off magic yoyo!" Hence the name Rebrand! I put Waylon on creating a logo. His partner Mandy actually came up with the idea of a design that looked like we took the original yoyo and just stamped "rebrand" on it!
To give it that rain city flare, Mrs Yoyothrower took photos or graphics of each player on the team and created logos. We then printed sets of pogs! Each Rebrand will come with 3 random sets of pogs so you can support your favourite team member. The pogs are a touch smaller than our last batch, but if you have them, you can squeeze them in!
They come with a slim beginner bearing installed. You can toss in a full size bearing for unresponsive play, but you will get some vibe.
