MadHouse yo-yos was an idea that Rick had for many years but did not have a clear-cut way of implementing his plan. Eventually, things lined up and MadHouse was born. MadHouse’s first release in late 2008 was the 5150, which is named after the California police code for a mentally disturbed person. MadHouse has used NFS String made by Tanner Manning of San Fransisco. MadHouse has since formed a team of uniquely qualified individuals called the MadHouse Syndicate. MadHouse's future plans are to continue to grow their line of unique, playable and amusing yo-yos.
