8 yoyos in CeD's collection
Limited-edition - The K-OS Extreme is YoYoJam's second signature yo-yo for Eric Koloski. The precedent is the YoYoJam K-OS, and difference is that the K-OS Extreme is 3.50 grams heavier. The K-OS Extreme uses the Copper - Heavy Gravity material as rim weight, thus giving the rims a brown color. Unfortunately the K-OS Extreme is YoYoJam's last yo-yo to incorporate the Heavy Gravity material. Due to the higher costs of obtaining the material, YoYoJam is discontinuing the HG line, including the YoYoJam SpinFaktor HG, the YoYoJam Copperhead HG and the YoYoJam K-OS. The K-OS Extreme uses the hybrid response, that combines an o-ring and starburst for a unique response. It uses a large YoYoJam bearing. 2010-03-08 12:41:46
A cheaper, simpler successor of the Dark Magic, made completely of plastic and instead of the adjustable-gap it has fixed gap that is larger than you can get on the adjustable-gap. The Legacy unlike previous YoYoJam yo-yos has weight rings underneath the caps. It also has YoYoJam's new silicone response which is less responsive than the rubber o-rings of previous yo-yos. This yo-yo was meant to bring enable advanced tricks at a lower price point, competing directly with products like YoYoFactory's Plastic Grind Machine. 2010-03-08 12:59:57
The Plastic Grind Machine, often abbreviated PGM, is YoYoFactory's first high end plastic yo-yo. It features YoYoFactory's Hubstack technology, and removable rubber o-rings in the thumb grind area to allow you to change the weight slightly (weighing at about 1.25g each)
The first run came in the color options of Lime Green, Blue, and White. The "Stackless" Plastic Grind Machine is no longer available, since the release of the PGM 2.0. Instead, YoYoFactory will be releasing the Die-Nasty in its place.
Another feature of it is the option of ordering a stackless PGM. It originally sold for $28 with the stacked version costing $45; many people found this cost to be very high leading to YoYoFactory creating the version 2.0 selling for $30. 2010-03-08 12:59:35

Russell is one of the oldest and most well-known yo-yo companies. The Russell company was formed in 1947 when Jack Russell, a professional yo-yo player, took the idea of linking yo-yos to promotions. Originally called The Jack Russell Company, recently the company has been renamed to Russell Promotions, Inc. (to refelect the overall makeup of the company, including most of Jack's family), but the core company concept still remains: promoting name brand products and linking them directly to promotions.
An example of the promotional view, is the Coca-Cola Russell yo-yo craze that swept across the globe in the 1980's and gave a lot of the current generation of yo-yo players their start. In this period professional Russell demonstrators took the craze to 95 countries, with yo-yo models reflecting most of the soft drinks produced by the Coca-Cola company. Promotions are based on the idea of taking a simple toy, creating a fad around it, and supporting it with related activities, such as yo-yo competitions.
Recently Russell Promotions have expanded the types of products they offer to footbags, keeping with the tradition of "easy to learn but difficult to master" skill related sports. Russell Promotions, Inc. is located in Stuart, Florida. 2010-03-08 13:07:39
