Old School Throws Official Thread
« on: August 27, 2017, 07:08:10 PM »
Hello everyone, my name is Matt and I am here to officially introduce Old School Throws.

The company's primary goal is to reintroduce organic throws to a market dominated by competition oriented yoyos that are often v or h shaped in design. 

The inspiration for this company came from years of playing with yoyos from the 2000-2010 era.  I started yoyoing in 2009 but wasn't serious until 2013.  At the time, I was infatuated with the General-Yo Hatrick, thus sparking my love for small diameter organics.  Over the course of the next few years, I bought, sold, and collected nearly 200 yoyos from this era. 

Getting to try out all of these yoyos not only refined my preferences, but also gave me insight as to what I wanted to add to the market.  For years I've been playing with different specs, trying to find the perfect combination that would yield a high quality throw that includes my favorite characteristics of last decade's yoyos. 

I've always wanted to make my own throw and the time has finally arrived!  I am proud to present our first release, the Quint.  Drawing inspiration from the Sili Dert, the Quint features a 36.60 mm frame and a 52.3 mm diameter.  Weighing in at just over 63 grams, the Quint is probably considered undersized by today's standards, but would have been classified as mid-sized back in the day.

The Quints first released on August 25, 2017.  There are still some available here: http://oldschoolthrows.bigcartel.com/
