YoYoFactory started to tinker with designs and thought some fresh perspective might help the situation, they reached out to noted Japanese Yo-Yo designer SUS YOYO MECHANICS, and gave a pretty simple brief. Re-imagine the Shutter with Japanese design philosophy in a bi-metal format. The design showed consideration for the essence of the Shutter in shape, style, weight and feel but there was a more simplified, minimalist feel too. It looked great. Prototypes supported the initial thoughts, it was a rim weighted highly agile super stable shutter. Powerful. Gentry was impressed.
Gentry created the final art, delivering the perfect combination of previous Shutter and minimalism. The Shutter legacy has already delivered 4 USA titles, 2 World Titles and many other titles around the world. The bi-metal Shutter is the next step.
