After bringing back SPiNMASTER X and PYRO X, 3A Legend Jun Aramaki (Former YoYoJam team member) approached Dave Geigle to think about NiGHTMOVES X. An ambitious idea because they knew it would have to nail the “WOW” sensation that everyone got from throwing the original Nightmoves. They prototyped two versions and both Dave & Jun’s reaction found exactly what they were hoping for, that PERFECT NiGHTMOVES feeling!
Just like the original, the new NiGHTMOVES X is a powerhouse of a yo-yo built for impressive spin times and stability. At 71g with the caps installed it’s no lightweight, but the hybrid construction gives it a relatively forgiving feel in play despite the heavier overall weight.
And yes, we mentioned caps. Caps were a classic gem of YoYoJam throws and obviously they had to be included in the new NiGHTMOVES X design. However, iYoYo understands the modern generation and even many old school players prefer the feeling without caps. So, they gave NMX the same awesome fingerspin hub that everyone loves in iCEBERG and also a subtle version of the logo in case you want to remove them.
Caps are easily removable with a suction cup and it will bring the weight from 71.4g down to 67.1g. The NiGHTMOVES X has a familiar nimble YoYoJam sensation with the caps installed and iYoYo’s top-notch spin quality without.
