Harrison Lee's new signature yoyo CLYW Orca revealed!


#1

Intriguing design, can’t wait to see how it plays!  :slight_smile:


#2

interessent curves
Black w/ white splash confirmed?


#3

the bearing is not CT ? is it a new era for clyw ?


#4

Haha, we can only hope!


#5

Bearing has not been CT for some time now. Too many people were moaning about the break-in time for the pre-lubed CTX. It’s why we can’t have nice things.

This yoyo looks interesting (and comfy!)… curious to see the cup and find out the specs!


#6

CLYW has been shipping with flat bearing since earlier this year. Not sure of the reason exactly, I think the first WM2 run was the last run that had CTXs?


#7

Im digging the shape, looks pretty comfortable in the hand.
Im hoping it will be something around 66 grams.


#8

Looks really cool! Love the shape


#9

The diameter appears to be ~53, unlikely to exceed 56
Width is <43
my photoshop broke and measuring off the computer screen doesnt accomplish derp


#10

Ooo, it’s got the “wing-shaped” inner rims like the Puffin 2. That’s some comfy stuff right there.


#11

The profile is somewhat like a shutter, with thicker rims and a smaller diameter.


#12

I personally feel like there’s a subtle nod to the Glacier Express/Cliff in the rim shape too…

I’m pumped!


#13

Something about this shape really pumps me up. After reading kadabrium’s post I realized that the angle of the shot makes the yoyo look a bit wider than it is. Hopefully it’s a bit more than 43mm wide. But still, can wait to see more! How awesome would it be if this thing had a concave cup that worked well with fingerspins? Pretty unlikely given CLYW axle size but hey, I can dream.


#14

agreed! looks like it could be a real promising throw! and just like how everyone else said, it looks like it will feel real good in the hand. I think it looks like one sexy yoyo if you ask me. all we need now is the northern lights colorway and I’m in!! :slight_smile:


#15

I threw the proto at LVOYYC yesterday, the cup has a small nub that’s sort of reminiscent of the bonfire, cool throw though! Harrison is a rad person, can’t wait to score this!! Also really want to see black and white colorway!!!

Here’s a pic of the cup! Really does resemble the puffin around the edges with a bonfire-esque inner hub area. So excited for this, looks like a ton of fun!
