Description
SPYUS102: BaliYo | Blue & Green
BaliYo by Spyderco

Spyderco describes this item as follows:

You've seen the original BaliYo by Spyderco. Since the introduction, we received an overwhelming response. Based on customer feedback Spyderco is proud to announce an alternative to the original. The black BaliYo comes with all the same creative motion and dynamics as offered by the original. The pen features blue ink and the arms are slightly angular with stainless pivots, rings and clips that compliment the sleek black body. All of the refined symmetry and weight ratios allow for great spins, flips and twirls. Compact, hanging package includes a pictured instruction sheet for basic tricks. Made in USA.

What is a BaliYo?
Constructed from three pieces of close-tolerance polymer, the center body is a pressurized ball point pen pivoting between to two parallel arms. The positioning dynamics of the pivots allow you to swing and rotate the pen, changing its speed and force of gravity while flipping and twirling. Refined symmetry with even weight ratio (end-to-end and side-to-side) balances the pen through motion and force. With practice you can learn sophisticated moves, two-handed tricks, quick-flips, spins, aerials and how to manipulate combinations of these.

What does the BaliYo do?
The BaliYo is a toy that promotes ambidextrous hand/eye coordination and helps develop fine motor skills.

How big is the BaliYo?
The BaliYo is 4 1/4" long and weighs 1 oz.

What ages is the BaliYo appropriate for?
While the BaliYo is fun for all ages, it does have a few small parts and is not for children 5 and under.

How do you write with it?
To expose the pen, twist the tip in a clockwise direction. Then, in the closed position, place your forefinger and thumb just above the brass rings.

The BaliYo is 4 1/4 inches (108mm) tall, and weighs in at 1oz (29g).

Contains the Fisher Space Pen cartridge. Writes underwater, in freezing cold, boiling heat, at any angle, even upside down. Replacement cartridge can be found here.

Not for children under 5.

Pros: Durability, Overall Quality, Refill Quality
Cons: None
Good, Safe, Fun...with a purpose.
I watched the video and started flipping the pen around. Became addicted withing minutes and couldn't put it down until I had some moves down. It's way safer and is painless compared to the knife equivalent. Really good fun. It is very light and you have to use harder movements because of that but no problem. Once you adjust to the weight and feel, good luck putting it down.

Great buy
Got for my son for Christmas. After reading reviews of the one's made in China falling apart shortly after 1st use. I am glad that we searched out the one made in the US. It has held up well so far...

Great fun!
I ordered the baliyo because I wanted something I could flip around in public. It is a pain to get it out of the package which is no big deal. When first flipping it you notice that it is REALLY light. It is going to be a little hard at first but once you get used to this it is very fun and definitely a head turner. The pen itself writes amazing but it is a little hard to hold because of it's awkward shape (removing the pocket clips helps a bit). The handles do get loose pretty fast but I don't find it too big of a problem yet. I would definitely recommend this to anyone thinking about buying it, it is well worth the money.
