When the Hitman was first released in 2003, it changed EVERYTHING. Grinds and unresponsive play became mainstream, and ask anyone who was around that time – the Hitman was the yo-yo of choice. Ready to bring it to the next level, 2003 World 1A Champion Johnnie Delvalle did a complete redesign, taking everything great about the original Hitman and adding in the new Solid Spin Axle system, in the form of the Hitman Professional, released on New Year's Eve 2010.

Everything that made the classic Hitman the professional’s choice returns in the new version. The shape, resembling that of the X-ConVict, is designed to fit perfectly in the hand for a most comfortable feel. The weight rings are wide and maximize weight across the entire rim for an incredibly smooth ride. The yo-yo can also grind, much like the original.

New design elements include a slightly smaller diameter for the more intricate style of yo-yoing today and YoYoJam’s patent pending Solid Spin Axle system, first seen in the SFX, has been added for a more stable and perfectly balanced spinning experience, along with an adjustable gap that adapts to wide or narrow bearings. The weight has been tweaked, and carbon fiber-patterned side caps bring the Hitman Professional to a new level of sophistication, receiving JD’s approval as the very best YoYoJam has to offer.
