Hey guys, this is my review for the new C3Yoyodesign yoyo the Di Base 2! You say Di Base differently than you think, it is supposed to sound like dee baw say. Now onto the review (tell me what you think in the end.)

Width: 41.3 mm / 1.63 inches
Weight: 67.6 grams
Bearing Size: Size C (.250 x .500 x .187)

I’ve wanted a Di Base for a while but didin’t know if I should get one but when the Di Base 2 came out I liked the added weight rims and the colors more so I said what the heck, I’ll get one. I got the green/blue acid wash with purple splatter and on mine (i don’t know if it’s the same in others) when it’s spinning it looks like one side is purpleish and the other looks mostly blue, it looks pretty cool inmy perspective. It comes with a stock bearing and this one does not come with rubber weight rims like the first Di Base does.
My first throw I didn’t even think it was sleeping it was so quiet, my brother was a few feet away and couldn’t hear it. I like the response on this but sometimes when you bind it sort of snags and you have to throw a couple of times to get it undone but it catches even when the yoyo is barely sleeping at all. so Idid some tricks with it and even after my longest combo it snapped back to my hand and hurt! after doing some more tricks I decided to do a grind, it was awesome, it just sat there for a bit but then after it grinds for about 3 seconds it completely tips over and dies but it grinds better than the token and DV888 in my mind. For the sleep time with the stock bearing in it slept for 30-45 seconds so I threw in my Crucial Groovedbearing and got about 2 minute sleeps. it doesn’t sleep on the end of the string so well but during play it’s sleeps pretty well.
This yoyo’s weight rims have a gap on both sides that a thin piece of metal goes through and it just intrigues me and I don’t know why.The play on this thing is pretty good for the price. It’s dead smooth and only really dies unless you wind up to many strings or on certain tricks. It plays decently fast and is quite snappy in the binds. I loved my experience with this yoyo and might get another one so I can do 3a
If you want a mid-undersize throw for under $60 that plays well and looks cool then get the Di Base 2.
