My yoyo design


#1

I made two yoyo designs and if all goes well a new company may be born. Zen Spring (MYNAMEISZen) helped created three. It would be a great help if you guys and gals could choose the two designs that appeal most to you and which finish you prefer. The first three designs all look similar. The last two look similar to each other as well. Each person has a total of 3 votes. If you would change anything about a design please post here or PM me. Also, how much would you be willing to pay for a prototype that is completely raw? On to the pics :slight_smile:

All three have the same specs:
Diameter: 55mm
Width: 40mm (without bearing or axle)
Weight: 66g (without bearing or axle)
Material: 6061 Aluminium

Thanks for looking! ;D

Do we vote here?


#3

Yes there is a poll at the top. :slight_smile:


#4

These all have walls that are really thick. So if you like tons of center weight, and less rim weight, go for it.


#5

It doesn’t have very much center weight, and there is still quite a bit of weight on the rims its just a little more evenly distributed.


#6

You don’t want it that evenly distributed, believe me. I suggest you check out this thread, which has examples of existing yoyos’ cross sections. http://yoyoexpert.com/forums/index.php/topic,58013.msg599654.html#msg599654


#7

A more evenly distributed yoyo gives you a more floaty feel and that’s why she wanted it that way,


#8

Hey, I like some float in my throws ;). Also added two more of Zen’s designs.


#9

Whoops, I don’t have that on my mobile


#10

I see the C3 influence in these :wink: but these are some pretty nice designs. I especially liked the 2nd and 3rd ones.


#11

SHHH! No can know about this! :wink: I’m actually designing a yoyo that is made with fingerspin in mind. Kind of like the Mo-Vitation, without the $90 price tag and more steps.

Does anyone have a price range that they’re willing to pay for a bead blasted raw proto?


#12

Yeah, one of the designs I’m thinking of producing is like Mo-Vitation meets P.wave in shape. I would pay $60-$80, but I have no money a the moment.


#13

The P.Wave and the Mo-Vitation have almost identical shapes. The P.Wave’s first step is slighty longer and has a greater slant than the Mo-Vitation. The cups are somewhat different. Both have the rings with laser engravings on them, but the P.Wave has a different hub area.
Specs of each yoyo (taken from C3’s FB page:

Specs of P.wave

Weight: 67.9 grams
Width: 45.21 mm
Diameter: 56.39 mm
Gap width: 4.320 mm

Specs of Mo-Vitation

Weight: 67.6 grams
Width: 42.28 mm
Diameter: 55.5 mm
Gap width: 4.310 mm

#14

Oh, for some reason I thought the Mo-Vitation had rounder rims. I think I was thinking of the Krown… My yoyo has a lower step in the cup and a slightly sharper angle (similar to the Krown) right next to the response. My finger grind bump thing is also a bit different.

Sure.

Can I just say I’m open to testing and reviewing a prototype once you decide which one to make? :slight_smile: The third is my favorite.

Lol, ignorance is bliss
