Gentry Stein’s new signature yo-yo, The Shutter

A yo-yo that has been teased and rumored about for a while now.  The YoYoFactory Shutter finally made its public debut at the World YoYo Championship in the hands of Gentry Stein.  I managed to meet up with Mr. Stein prior to Worlds and give it a test run.

In the center of the cup is a well about a sixth of an inch deep. The rims of that inner cup flair out. This design should assist in horizontal finger grinds. The overall shape is a departure from Gentry’s current lineup, but compliments his playstyle well. No word yet on price or release timeline.


  • Diameter: 55.9mm
  • Width: 44.3mm
  • Weight: 67.9 grams
  • Bearing: C Sized
