The Metric by OutofHand is a yoyo which doubles as a measuring tool. It's a slim yoyo design that feels good in your pocket because of the big surface area. I am very interested in clever pocket tools and objects with multiple functions, and since this is ment to be an everyday-carry type of pocket yoyo, I thought it would be cool to have a handy tool integrated. Apart from measuring straight lines, the Metric yoyo can also measure curved lines, which a regular straight ruler can't. To roll it you simply place your thumb and index finger on the sides holes and put slight downward pressure on it so it doesn't slip while rolling. you can also roll it with your palm on top of the yoyo. The ruler goes clockwise on one side and counterclockwise on the other side. It also has a mark for every 10 centimeters which makes it easy to count how many times you roll it. Five revolutions = 1 meter.

The yoyo is lightweight and slim, but it's surprisingly easy to hit tricks on despite its narrow profile. I think that the large diameter makes it easier to hit the string compared to a small diameter with the same width. It does not spin forever, which is a good thing, in my opinion. That provides both a challenge and makes you more aware on how you execute your tricks. I have no trouble hitting all my tricks on this yoyo.

--------------------------- A grade VS B grade -----------------------

The B grades have a tiny anodising flaw on the inside near the rim. It is not visible when the yoyo is screwed together. It's just a tiny watermark.

All the yellows are A grade. Only one black is A grade, and only three Black&Yellows are A grade


Due to its large diameter and complicated shape this was a very expensive yoyo to manufacture compared to my previous designs. I had to change to a new manufacturer that could handle large diameter yoyos, and that was able to laser engrave black on yellow. Therefore it's only 50 yoyos made in total. All the yellows are A grade. Only one black is A grade, and only three Black&Yellows are A grade

To all Americans who want the imperial system instead of the metric system, I am sorry, but that will never happen. The Imperial yoyo already exists and the imperial measuring system does not make sense, especially for this design :)
