The 8th 66％ product is the PYRO from the Swiss yo-yo brand HSPIN, which ended its activities in 2012.
PYRO was a bestselling model that sold more than 1000 units at the time and was a turning point in the yo-yo scene.
The biggest difficulty in getting the PYRO to PYRO66 was how to reproduce the red PYRO. As I explained in the development story(Blog), the yo-yo was a monometal yo-yo at the time, but it was modified to be a bimetal yo-yo.
In the 66% series, there was an unspoken rule that aluminum mono metals were to be replaced by stainless steel, but in this PYRO, there was no way to make the stainless steel to be red, so give up monometal.
If the EdgeBeyond66 is the best-performing yo-yo ever in 66%, then the latest for 2020, the PYRO66, is the best-looking (and good-performing) yo-yo ever.
Because of the original frame pattern, there is friction at about 1cm from the yo-yo, and the string wears out quickly. We decided to use the original pattern of the initial lot in order to reproduce the good appearance.
