Im thinking of doing protos and a super small run (30-50 pieces total) of this throw that ive put a lot of time into the past week or so.
Its 50mm diameter x 50mm width, weighing between 59-60 grams and sporting a 4.35 gap width, its an ultrawide undersized organic. I wouldnt be looking to make money, and would price the yoyos accordingly to cover the cost of everything (protos, product, packaging, shipping, etc.)
Just looking to see if anyone is interested before i pull the trigger. I have a yoyo design getting made by retic as our next design, but this one is a bit more out there in terms of specs and design, which is why im thinking about an individual release.
Lmk if you guys would be interested at all, or have anything to say. Thanks homies
6/27 i am thinking of either doing a solid/halfswap color scheme or a fade color scheme. Id like to go all or nothing in terms of which one we choose just to make it easier in terms of pricing. This isnt the poll to choose the actual colors yet, but just the type. Please comment or add any ideas for any colors you might like. After this poll runs I’ll move onto specific colors and fades. Thanks guys!
- Solid color/halfswap
- Fade color
6/29 a more detailed response is on page 52, but here are the current color ideas:
Run color idea: (i can only choose 1 color)
Engraving idea: (have to figure out where… 1 rim, both rims, or cup)
Thanks again everyone for the continued support
Heres renders in different light environments of what the colors will look like: let me know if you have any questions!
Have a couple tweaks to do before sending it to the shop, but so far so good! let me know how these colors appeal to you all!
7/1 UPDATE: protos have been ordered. Probably another month until they’ll be here. But its exciting!
9/1 UPDATE: protos have been completed after a lot of struggle and some changes to the design to prevent tool crashing (find post 97 for a more in depth look at the process) Here’s what they look like now:
They are currently being anodized and then shipped. I can’t wait to try them, send them out to friends and possibly reviewers, and gather as much feedback as possible before deciding on if changes are needed for a production run of 50. Thank you all for the patience.
