BASECAMP - Sherpa
A very interesting concept! Sherpa is a hollow-bodied full metal yo-yo with a retro shape.
The Sherpa are an ethnic group from the Himalaya, famous for being mountain guides. The concept is similar to the Moonshine, with a retro body that conceals the very modern design and technology used to make it. The Sherpa wasn't made for technical string tricks that demand fast, long sleep times; it was made to give a feeling of nostalgia with a modern twist.
The seam joining the parts together is so thin that it looks like there's a full metal cap, but the entire hollow body is sealed. With an old school slender body, the Sherpa has a playfeel that makes it stand out in the Basecamp lineup. Even compared to yo-yos with the same 64g weight, the Sherpa is in a league of its own!
