We’re closing shop.
A big thanks to the stores for investing in SPYY, to the players that choose to throw SPYY, to the team members that represented SPYY and especially to my lovely wife, Suzanne who helped make it all happen. It was a good run, so thanks. I’ll be forever grateful. I hope to see you all soon.

In 2012, SPYY team member Ed Haponik took a one year oath to play only a single fixed axle, wooden yo-yo. He completed this goal as of 12/31/12. His efforts were documented on 365yoyotricks.com and in several of his clip videos, and have helped to inspire a resurgence in fixed axle play.
This yo-yo he has used is once again available in a very limited run. Made of a denser grade of red oak than the last release, this version adds a few grams of mass and sharper engravings. It’s creation was a joint effort between two master craftsmen of the yoyo world: Colin Leland of TMBR and Steve Buffel of SPYY.
These yo-yos have been hand tested by Ed and all come strung with hand made string by Ed himself. A truly one of a kind and very special yo-yo available from www.yoyoexpert.com

Ed wraps up his year-long journey with his purpose built wood SPYY EH. Here’s his summary of that journey as portrayed through www.365yoyotricks.com
This Pro Series throw is a culmination of everything we’ve learned over the years about all-out performance and balance. We pushed our design and manufacturing limits to produce this ultimate example of optimized weight distributions and mass centralization. The resulting shape is surprisingly organic and stunning in appearance, while it’s playability is extremely empowering and long spinning with exacting precision.
“This machine kills tricks” is a statement we’ve adopted for this release, as it accurately describes the feeling one gets while manipulating this no-compromises “machine” through a series of moves! SPYY fans will no doubt welcome this throw into their arsenals of competition level hardware.
