The Jackknife is a yo-yo co-produced by YoYoFactory and CLYW as a product of the Basecamp collaboration. It was first introduced at the 2016 World Yo-Yo Contest alongside the Expedition and Moonshine models before being given a wider retail release on August 17th, 2016.

Description[]

The Jackknife's design influences come from CLYW, but with its execution being undertaken by YoYoFactory. Based on CLYW's recent work and weighing in at 64 grams, the Jackknife is a speedy and floaty throw in a time where heavier yo-yos are gaining popularity, making it a breath of fresh air, especially with a great weight distribution.

Sweetening the deal further is a development of YoYoFactory's "fingerspin cup" design, with an innovative undercut that contributes to the yo-yo's weight distribution and making top-on play easier and more fun for the user. All three yo-yos in Basecamp's first release line-up are free of any logos or etchings, making for the smoothest possible surface to practice with.
