Paul Yath has re-launched Crucial with a focus on street wear for yo-yo life. He is celebrating his 4th of July launch with %25 off his new shirt line.
Saw this on Paul Yath’s Facebook page.
I don’t have any specs at this point but when I do I there will be an update here
Paul Yath is freaking amazing. He is honestly one of my favorite people in the yo-yo community. The guy has proven that yo-yoing can be cool over and over again with his unique blend of fashion and skill. I first met Paul at BAC a number of years ago, and was very impressed with the packaging and presentation of the Crucial line. Over the years, Paul moved beyond delrin and started making metal throws. Since Paul is such a heavy 3A player, most of his designs reflect that style. One of his latest throws is the A La Mode. The phrase in America usually refers to the Pie with Ice Cream desert and is a slight “tip to the hat” / *wink and nod* to the food based naming convention Crucial likes to use. A La Mode though, is also French for “In the Style” which is a sly nod to Crucial’s business. Paul sent me an extra A La Mode during the 3(A)pril YoYoSkills promotion and I finally got a week to work it through the review.
This is what Paul Yath had to say on Facebook about the A.Y.C.E.
The next yoyo I’m releasing from Crucial. I never did an official release of the Metal Tres Leches from 3 years ago and have gotten a lot of request from people to produce it since then. Similar shape, updated design, and new name. Introducing the A.Y.C.E., Kevin Eulalia’s signature yoyo. At $65 Retail, beginner metal is truly all you can eat.
Weight: 67.2 grams
Diameter: 53.48 mm

New offstring prototype from Crucial.
Here are some first looks of the prototype for the Milk Shake Offstring yoyo by Crucial. Still in testing phase. I still need to make some adjustments to the mass distribution to get perfect weight and feel. No set release date, but aiming for June. Keep checking back for updates.
Here is a first look at the next yoyo in Crucial’s signature series. The yoyo is designed for Darrell’s preference and style of play. Anyone who has seen Darrell freestyle, knows that his style is fast and full of high risk bangers. Even at 68 grams, the throw is fast. The width is at 43.6mm, making for a wider feel and easier to land tricks at all angles. Close to that of the Delicious, the diameter is at 55.65mm. This will also be the first yoyo to feature the Crucial bearing 2. No name have been decided on yet. The first chance to get your hands on one of these will be at CA States in March.

This is the Crucial Threads Delicious. It is expected to hit stores soon and retail around $90
Here are first looks at Crucial’s upcoming yoyo Delicious. This is the follow up and redesign of the unreleased Metal Tres Leches. I designed this yoyo with 3A style of play in mind. The yoyo is heavily rim weighted for long sleep times and a stable throw. It features a low wall for so there is less tilt when doing velvet style tricks and combos. Weighing in at 68 grams, it’s more on the heavier side, just the way I like it for 3A:) Don’t sweat though, this yoyo is fast and is great for single A. Size specs coming soon.
From the Crucial Blog
Here is a first look at the new extremely large metal, Jirorian. At over 68 mm diameter, you can pretty much eat out of this thing. The yoyo next to it is the heavy cream for comparison. The concept and name of the Jirorian was derived from the mind of Moriki. The yoyo is named after a popular ramen restaurant in Japan called Jiro, where it is known not only for their quality of their ramen, but also the extremely large portions served. I’m definitely going to see what the hype is all about when I’m out there and hopefully become a Jirorian myself. The yoyo weighs in at 75.5 grams. I feel that this weight matches perfect with the diameter for a non floaty feel when doing tricks. It maybe a little heavy for some, so this yoyo isn’t for everyone. Only 50 will be available for it’s debut release at 44 Clash. Ano pics coming soon…
