Honey Badger • 7068 v2
$65.00 Sold out
This is a collaboration between Jeremy Park of ZipLine Strings, and Justin Bui of Unspoken Yoyos, and the 4th iteration of the Honey Badger. This concludes the 2019 Honey Badger series.
***b-grades are now available*** this is the last of the pack for a 30% discount due to slight vibe. These still play great, and you may even find them as smooth as many big name A-Grade commercial releases (not naming any names).
Each HB comes with an HB pin, HB sticker, ZipLine string, and a ZipLine PaddlePick.
- A little about this new version >>>
Since the first release in April, we’ve been experimenting with 3 new iterations of the current round of HB’s. The idea behind the changes in the 7068 v1 and v2 was to noticeably display what can be done when you switch to a denser material, and alter the weight distribution. This is not just the same design with a new material, they were a second and third take on how to take advantage of 7068.
Same dimensions and profile as the previous 2, but with slightly different weight distribution. Similar to the 7068 v1, the denser aluminum allows us to thin the walls, drop the weight, and distribute a little more weight to the rims. However, with this version, the feel and performance lands right in between the 6061 v2 and 7068 v1. You can feel more power and stability behind it as with the 6061 v2, while it still retains some of that lighter feel and maneuverability as the 7068 v1. This one really captures the best of both worlds. You’ll also notice a slight cosmetic change (beveled cut) in the rim to distinguish itself from the other two and add to its refined look.
Additional Note: We used the same manufacture as with the new 6061 v2, which allowed us to achieve the same smooth, satiny blast and anodization, along with the same high quality pads and bearing.

- Product Description >>>
The Honey Badger is aimed at being an enjoyable, feature rich EDC, while not drawing too much attention to gimmicks. And although we didn't necessarily set out for this to perform like a beast, it can definitely hold its own.
The profile is inspired by the Apollo, but also incorporates the simplistic outer face of the Paradox, along with inner cup styling and weight distribution of the Riddle. The HB has our absolute favorite Unspoken features packed into one throw. Not only that, Justin was also great at implementing our additional design preferences, which allowed for even greater comfort and more feature friendliness.
We find that the Honey Badger is an absolute delight for packing around, and it's fully capable of pulling off and showing off just about anything you throw at it! If it were my only yoyo in my carry-on luggage, I'd be perfectly happy with that!
