Replay: The full History (Part 2)

The look of the debut Replay release was unique. Using three color schemes with the bold cap contrasting the body color. The idea was to design a yoyo unmistakably recognizable when being played anywhere by anyone.

 solid mono color was produced for the first time for the World YoYo Contest, as was an all clear for a YoYoExpert Mystery Release pack. There is also the METAL REPLAY, but we will come back to that in another Blog post later.

 

Gentry Stein went on to win the USA National Contest with a $16 Replay Pro. Spectators were floored, the yoyo community's collective jaw dropped. No longer did a competitor need to spend upwards of $120 for a durable, yoyo truly capable of performing at the elite level. Gentry's win cemented Replay's place in yoyo history while realizing the objective of the project in a truly undeniable manner.
