Before the use of computers, the word Icon had a completely different meaning. An icon was a visual representation of an idea, or culture. To say something was Iconic was to say that something was a representation of an idea or location; Such as the Statue of Liberty, the Eifel Tower, Chuck Norris or Neil Patrick Harris. HSpin, a company known for unique designs and impressive graphics, has been the long time sponsor of Stefan “Magl33to” Benjamin, and has finally honored him with a signature yo-yo. The ICON has been in development for a while and after an unveiling at the European Yo-Yo Meet, feedback has been rolling in.
Thank you 2009. You brought us a popularity surge in Netbooks, a nostalgic Mario game for the Wii, and more importantly, set up 2010 to be the year of the affordable, low price, high performance yo-yo. Not only are yo-yo companies in America focusing on low cost high performance metals, the trend has officially gone global. From the icy chocolate alps of Switzerland H-Spin campus comes the H-Spin BeySick. Low price, high precision, and more than you would expect from a yo-yo in the sub-$60 price range.
The original rendition of the Evny was a very bold and risky move. H-Spin produced the Envy with the most pronounced H-Profile the market had only imagined on paper. This 72 gram behemoth came out in April 2007, and has seen both critical acclaim and criticism. The overall feelings on this yo-yo are mixed. Some people like the shape while others hate it. One thing that no one can deny is that the H-Spin Envy helped change the way yo-yos were designed and manufactured. There have been two significant changes to the Envy since the first release in April. The Envy 64 kept the overall shape, but brought it down to 63.4 grams, and the now the NVx, a complete re-envisioning of a progressive original shape with maximum rim weight and a huge catch zone. H-Spin was kind enough to send me an NVx for review, and with excitement, I am happy to comply. Much like the Gingerbread house my Daughter made, the NVx looks good enough to eat. Just in time for Christmas, here is the the NVx.

Hey Guys, Great job on the Cut, Just wanted you to see my review for it. The whole review is a www.yoyoskills.com/cut.html
Introduction: I am convinced that Hspin headquarters is located on the Swiss version of The Island of Doctor Monroe. How else would you explain the constant production of yo-yo’s that refuse traditional shapes and designs. In the tradition of the Pyro, Good and Evil, and Envy, Hspin historically creates incredible looking yo-yo’s, and the Cut is no exception.
