The superb Kuntosh yoyo manufactured by One Drop - a 2016 version of the acclaimed Anti-Yo Kuntosh yoyo designed by Sonny Patrick that never went into full production.
The Kuntosh yoyo is named after a wedge-shaped italian supercar from the 1970’s, the Lamborghini Countach. The word “Countach!” is said to be the crude exclamation shouted by Giuseppe Bertone (head of Bertone Design) when he first saw the prototype of the vehicle in his studio. Simply translated in polite terms the word means “Wow!”, but more accurate would be (again in polite terms) “Holy Guacamole!”
And yes, the Kuntosh yoyo is very fitting of the name.
Available now with a laser-etched segment of a line drawing silhouette of the Lamborghini Countach on both sides of the solid color yoyos (special edition colorways do not have the etching). At YoYoLoco we have added the designation “Front/Nose”, “Side/Door” and “Rear/Wing” so you can select the specific graphic you prefer or if you wish to collect all three.
Description from manufacturer OneDrop:
You may have heard whispers coming from the far corners of the internet or backrooms of your yo-yo club about the last(and unreleased) yo-yo from Anti-Yo. Legend has it that Sonny Patrick designed it and One Drop Yo-Yos built it. For years, only 10 of them have been in existence and are highly coveted by their lucky owners. It is rumored to grant it’s owner special powers and good luck.
Now, years later, with a push from a powerful underground movement of hardcore yo-yo players, Sonny and One Drop have finally come together to bring you the Küntosh!
Sonny took inspiration from the poster of the Italian sports car he had hanging in his room growing up. The Countach was not comprised of the strictly purposeful lines of a vintage Porsche 911, nor the long sensual arcs of Ferraris of the day. Rather, it had abrupt surfaces and sharp angles that emphasize what we’ll have to invent a new term for: ‘Squariness”. Yet somehow, the end result comes together in a way that you wouldn’t expect and it takes your breath away. It just screams performance and of course it lives up to the look. Sonny was bold enough to think he could pull of a similar thing in yo-yo design. Anyone who has been lucky enough to try the Küntosh would tell you that he pulled it off… in a big way. In both aesthetics and performance.
