YoYo Wiki

The Zip Zinger is a one-off prototype yo-yo produced by Anti-Yo. It is made of titanium, but the manufacturing process is not something so commonly seen in other metal yo-yos; metal injection molding (MIM).

A slurry of powdered titanium and an inert binder is mixed together, and then injected into a CNC-milled mold and baked in a kiln. The binder is burned away in the kiln, leaving behind solid titanium.

The yo-yo was slated to enter production and retail release, but it was cancelled due to potentially high production costs. The only prototype that was ever made of this model was remarked to play very fast, being 56 grams in weight. The MIM mold used to produce the Zip Zinger was made at the same machining shop that produced the older BSP.
