A-RT Tryyyptyyychhh

Since the only a-grades are silver, my guess is that the two-tone process turned out to be much more difficult than anticipated. That’s good news, because it means the b-grade stuff is all cosmetics versus vibe and such?

Yes, Jensen has a view videos talking about them on the A.RT youtube channel. I was watching them passively, but from what I caught, it sounds like they nearly all b-grade for cosmetic defects. I’d check out those videos again to be sure! :+1:t2:

This is the first A-RT I have had any interest in. Pretty lame having a mid day drop though, honestly. I would have to miss work for a chance at one.

Have a plan for getting them all? At those quantities it shouldn’t be too rough.

I already have a Canvas and I just bought a Diptych. The Triptych will complete the Canvas set. I just hope to get one Triptych.

I do not like this two-tone edge pinstripe thing at all. I much prefer what the Edgeless is doing.

Colors don’t really do it for me either @codinghorror :upside_down_face:

I really like the green with orange stripe. I love the wetlands here in oregon and it reminds me of a wood duck.

$150 and $100 for b grades? Damn. I love Jensen but man i guess A-RT is not for me.

For a monometal too. I understand why he’s able to justify pricing them like that as I mentioned above but that does mean I personally feel they are worth that much. But people will buy them and say they are the best because you have to when you’ve spent that much on a monometal organic.

Edgeless is 60$.

I guess that’s the difference you pay for clout toys vs a major toy powerhouse

The yoyo economy is wild rn; you can buy a titanium yoyo for less than the price of the latest a-rt release (a 6061 monometal)

When I asked what made the, Not Perfect
Ones, they hit me up via DM and showed me the small water spot in one of the cups.
It is super minimal.

Well, the fact they’re Designed by Jensen and then machined by OD in the US, and then shipped back to Jensen for assembly, testing, and sometimes painting, I feel their MSRP is fair for a small boutique Company of only a couple guys.

Back when I released the Vitality, they went between 120 and 150 depending on the ano, mind you, literally every single Vitality was anodized a different color, I still sold out in under a week.
This was in 2013.

I’m not saying it’s not fair, and they can charge whatever they like, I’m just saying it’s hard to justify for a lot of people given how many other yo-yos that are as good or better at much lower prices.

I get the appeal of limited release items but I feel like yo-yos are more akin to running shoes than Yeezys.

Running shoes resell for a hefty amount these days too - mostly Nike and designer collaborated Salomon’s
