Krown St.

Has anyone seen this yet? The design of this yoyo is sooo sick! I love the original krown, and if this is like an upgrade; then this yoyo will definitely play well.

Draupnir hype is real!

Seriously though, this looks legit!

It looks extra-legit.

But I’m SUCH a fan of the original, I just don’t know how it could be improved upon!

Only one way to find out…

I’m in two minds about this at the moment. It looks awesome, but it also looks a bit too much like a Berserker SS to really grab my interest (and my wallet).

I’ll keep my eye on it though. If I hear good things and it comes out in a colourway I like, I’ll probably pull the trigger. As Greg said, I would be interested to see how they’ve improved upon the original. :slight_smile:

Is this going to be like 7075 as the original.

It’s 6061

This looks great, I love the Berserker SS, its just a bit too heavy for me.

I I remember correctly, they have it on other stores although I don’t know if they are selling yet.

Sorry, I’ll keep that in mind. :stuck_out_tongue:

I’m highly disappointed in what they’ve done

I tend to agree the original didn’t need an upgrade, but I was not against the idea of a bi-metal krown

I found the original was already too large (I like 42/43), so even if I loved it, I didn’t give mine much play time, so the new ratio width/diameter doesn’t please me at all, now it’s both too large and too small

I don’t doubt it’s good, it’s just definitely not what I was expecting :frowning:

42/43 mm?
you are a lover of vintage yoyo! :smiley:

p.s. one of the best YYR I have, Acrophobia 54x45

I was talking about width range, I should have typed 42-43, my bad :smiley:
Sleipnir, Draupnir, Anglam, Berserker…

I don’t know the need for wider yoyos today, they’re so inaesthetic imo
Didn’t like the Acrophobia, both too wide and too small for me

I only go with wide yoyos when they’re oversized, Dreadnought and Overdrive are prime examples

The Krown is truly a great yoyo, I just don’t feel comfortable with its width

But if I get to try the Krown ST someday, I hope to change my mind on it

This video is awesome  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Gst8s29GPQ

I’m not sure if I would get this or the Krown because I already have a Berserker SS

Shinya Kido never ceases to amaze me

It is strange to see the 21 July, with 39°C outdoors, a video with the snow! ;D

I’m a huge fan of the ridgy-didge too… I almost can’t believe that yoyo could ever be better. Just mono 7075… Nothin’ finer.

This showed up today. I have not tried the original Krown but wow I can say this stacks up against anything I have including the Draupnir.
