Imit-8 Ion.  >:D
Obviously the top targets the same market as the S8 tops and it was inspired by them, but the shape is significantly different as are some of the features. For example, from the picture I can tell that the cap unscrews for full access to the inside but it won't have the double tip capability.  I am guessing players will find enough differences to have preferences based on how each one plays.

The shape reminded me Richy's acorn top,  so I suggest Chip-n-Dale  :D

So no on calling it the Ion?

It was just a joke. I can see that it is different. I'll just go put myself in timeout for a few minutes.

That rounded shape is now reminding me of an egg (perhaps because of the NSTR post about the egg sprinkler effect).



What about:

Eggo
Ego  There is a yo-yo named like that
Eggbeater

Actually, considering the high-tech look, Ion may have been a better proposal.

Mmm, what about Bombshell ?  It is round, sexy and explosive.  Now, the Sofia top was named after a bombshell  :-\

See Ion was a good name. Just drop the Imit8 from the front of it.

It reminds me of the 8 ball from the awesome pool ball tops sets that we have seen on this board.  May be the 8 ion could still be used in the form of Inspire 8 ion.

The Black and White theme gives it a Police Car look so we could also go with The Inforcer or some other policey description.  You could add a clear crown with an embedded red LED and make a real crowd pleaser.
