Kacper Palatynski hails from Poland and is the reigning European Champion. It was time for a signature yoyo that could keep up with his crazy tricks and YoYoFactory’s answer is the new and innovative FLAME!
At first glance the bi-metal design is strikingly beautiful and the shape wide and nimble. Further attention to detail shows off a clever delrin insert around the pad which reduces friction and truly maximizes spin time and off axis trick potential. Steel rims offer impressive spin power and the wide open catch zone makes risky bangers feel effortless.
My flame arrived this morning and I am very impressed! The delrin insert allows for quick snappy binds and fast play. It feels much lighter on the string than the weight suggested. This is by far the fastest yoyo I’ve played, while it still maintains stability and smoothness. I see this yoyo going far in the upcoming competition scene!
It really is. I steer away from bi metals because they always want to go fast, but this is different. I feel the flame allows for relaxed laid back throwing, but can go to an extreme level when necessary.
