h-shape and rounded


(Derek) #1

I was wondering what are the biggest differences between the H-shape and the rounded butterfly shape. Does anybody know?


#2

Some different design of the yoyo, or maybe the quality of the yoyo.

#3

the h-shape gets better sleeps,reason beingthe wheight is centered towards the rims


(Derek) #4

then why do some people prefer the rounded shape?


#5

Since it is rounded, it is more comfortable in your hand. It’s not all about sleep time, you know.


#6

Still, rounded shape is usually made in order to focus weight on the rims. Just because it is an H-Shape doesnt mean it is gonna have more sleep time 100% of the time.


#7

I also hear that variety is the spice of life.

~yo! shi!

Yep ;D
Now, lets compare shapes:
Lets cover the first two we were talking about: Rounded and H-Shape
Here is the most conventional round shape, though there can be similar variations.

Now lets jump to the H-Shape. YoYoFactory Pioneered this shape and did some great things with it. Its more profound in the G5, where I believe it was first introduced. I believe YYF did some testing and made 4 attempts before releasing the final product, the G5:

Over-time, they changed the shape a little. It is found in some yoyos as the Skyline and the Superstar:

The H-Shape gave great weight Distribution, and it contributed to long spin time. Over the years, there have been different innovations like flat rims:

And even pointed rims:

Anyway, I hope it helped!

Yep (NOTE: I am not saying that the company’s that I posted pictures invented those shapes, I am just showing them as examples ;))
