There's always a logical explanation, and when I find some time, either this weekend or next week, I will tell the whole story in a separate thread! The tough question is which forum should it go in, Yo-Yos or Share? It is definitely yoyo related, so it will not go in Whatever....:)

Can't wait DB, looks like an epic adventure with the forces of Tiki yoyo'ers and the horrible rodent hordes.

So yes, the Sovereign is made out of titanium. It's looking to have about a 50mm diameter and will weight in the 64-65 gram range.


David,

I understood that titanium was about $5 per gram.

Unless your electroplating titanium over some other material to reduce costs maybe.

I don't know ... this stuff isn't my specialty. I'm just trying to wrap my head around how a solid titanium yoyo could have anything less than a $300+ price tag.

Check your pricing. At RETAIL, today you can buy a 4 foot 2" diameter titanium round rod stock for $1900 or less. Assuming you use, say, 1 1/2" of titanium per yoyo, you can get 32 yoyos from that bar. Do the math...$1900/32 = $59.38 per yoyo, in raw titanium cost...At 65 grams you then have $0.91 per gram. And that's at retail material pricing. Take in to consideration a bulk purchase and real wholesale pricing, and the cost goes down from here.

Any questions?

I have no clue how much the yo will be nor what David/Shawn are paying, but a quick search on eBay shows you can get 2.5" diameter/11" long for $150.

Also, they don't list prices, but here is a seller that has all sorts of Ti bars for sale.

oh after seeing these prices im much more excited! i know they arent the prices that the yoyos will be, 1drop still needs to make money of course. but i was thinking they would be in the high 100$ range.
