Hello everybody! Just an update about the production process of the yoyo. I have finally received the prototypes today!
I am really really happy about how it plays, it is extremely stable for a monometal, yet is light and nimble due to the low overall weight! I think 7068 Aluminum really made the distribution very ideal. Overall I am very happy with the yoyo! Here is a picture of the prototypes.
When I was waiting for the prototypes, there were 2 worries that I had.
- I was afraid that the edges on the ring part of the yoyo would be a bit sharp
- I was afraid that the yoyo would snag with 4.5mm gap width
However, it turns out that the edges are actually very smooth and doesn’t feel uncomfortable at all! The shape of the yoyo is also very comfortable to catch as well. Furthermore, I haven’t had a situation that it snags, so I am actually very happy!
I have also created an instagram so feel free to follow for the latest news in regards to pre-ordering etc. However I am not quite sure when I should open the pre-order yet, I’ll let y’all know when there are any updates!
