CLYW - Kodiak
This inner-rim bimetal model was based on the Arctic Circle, and is the signature model of 2014 world champion, Tessa Piccillo.
Tessa! Tessa! 2014 Women's division world champion, and now mother of Kodiak, her new signature model from CLYW. A combination of the designs of Arctic Circle and the Manatee, Kodiak is a bimetal model with the inner rim snugly fit into the wing for very delicate weight balance. During play, it has a soft sense of control but with the decisive power of a bimetal yo-yo. You can feel that the weight of the stainless rim is really the driving force behind Kodiak's strength, but it still has the sense of control you get from a monometal throw.
The Kodiak was designed to be best suited for Tessa's signature speedy play. It's both easy to get the Kodiak spinning fast and stable, so speed demons may find a secret weapon in this yo-yo.
True to the name, the artwork is of the Kodiak bear.
The Kodiak is our newest bi-metal return top and our first signature model for 2014 Women's Division World Champion, Tessa Piccillo!
The Kodiak was designed exactly to Tessa's specifications, and updates design elements from the Arctic Circle series and Manatee with bi-metal construction and weight distribution. The Kodiak is remarkably fast, stable, and long-spinning, and feels both familiar and new at the same time. The weight distribution gives the Kodiak a powerful spin while still feeling floaty and almost weightless on the string.
