Five more to overtake the Organic Fans!

2 Likes

I don’t think the monometal fans will ever be beaten.

In a week or two I will end the polls and put up more specific ones. For example: Do you want a response bump? What are some things like this it would be good to vote on?

The chances of it being real one day are made more possible if it’s affordable to make so mono all the way

It’s all tied up with the materials and the organic fans have lengthened their lead!

Any suggestions for more specific polls such as: Should it be rim weighted, or, Should there be a flat hub or an axle nub?

If there is a spike option I will choose the spike option

The material fans are all tied up! Need one more!

Will close the polls in ~2 days and put up new, more specific ones. Last chance to vote!

I couldn’t add Hubstacks to the hub poll for some reason so if one outvotes the other I will choose that one.

Feel free to comment on anything to clarify or to tell me if I forgot something else to make a poll on.

Maybe a D vs C bearing option

This is a good idea although I would have to learn the specs and how to design for it.

Hubstacks might be a cool option to add.

It’s looking like a C-bearing Gnome Trooper with 7075 in place of '68 at the moment. I’ve never tried one, but that looks like an awesome throw.

Hubstacks added.

Can someone explain what a shmoove groove is? I know it is like a little indent near the bearing seat but I am not sure what the purpose is.

Also if you haven’t voted yet, feel free to do so!

Schmooves reduce friction and just look plain cool

This has been asked a bunch here. The idea is to reduce friction on a high/ medium wall YoYo. Some say it does something others claim it just looks cool. Either way I like the aesthetic

Schmooves reduce center weight and on a yoyo that came without them adding them looks kool and changes the center mass to rim weight ratio.

I’ve never used a yoyo with schmooves, but it seems like the idea is have a high-walled design/look with reduced friction.

I’ve also seen a little discussion about whether the groove causes a change in air flow that affects the string during slack elements, but idk.

As far as reducing center weight, if that was the goal, it seems like the entire wall could’ve just been made thinner rather than just a groove, but that’s just me. Maybe schmooves give it a unique weight distribution & feel.

Here are examples of yoyos with response moats/schmooves for those interested:
