I would like to finally announce that I have made my first yoyo! I have been trying to form a yoyo company and as of right now the name is Inertia in Motion. The yoyo I have made is in its finishing stages and its name is being called “Inverse”. But enough of me blabbing on… here are the specs ;D
Yoyo is made of 7075 T6 aluminum
Diameter: 2.195 inches/55.75 mm
Width: 1.765 inches/ 44.83 mm
Weight: 69.6 grams
This yoyo I designed was inspired by an unknown Japanese prototype. I really liked the profile shape of the Japanese prototype but had to completely redesign pretty much everything else (including diameter) because the proto felt too heavy, I didn’t like the way it played and there was a ton of unnecessary weight. After cutting off a ton of center weight and make it more suited for 1a play, this is the final result; a yoyo that had a similar profile shape with everything else changed and revised.
*Just a side note, I pretty much stink at using CAD and rely on my cousin who’s in a machining business but I still draw out the designs
**Another side note The prototypes are for sale at around $85-90 each. I would like to sell these so I can raise money for a real anodized production run. PM me for details and any questions ;D
