Ok, so here’s my current yoyo design, equipped with one drop spiked side effect
but
Diameter is 55.5 mm
The Width is 43.5 mm
and the base weight (excluding SE, bearing, and response) is ~62 grams (if 7075 aluminum) or ~60 grams (if 6061 T6 aluminum)

Tell me what ya think

Why’d you change it? I liked the other one.


#3

I didn’t, i still got the other one, this on is just based off of it.
Im glad you liked the other one tho. I would have posted this in the other thread, but i think that one died… So ill update this with my most current designs soon.


#4

I don’t much care for the shape of the catch zone and the thickness of the walls would leave me to believe that it’d be heavier than 60-62 grams.

Nevertheless, nice CAD.

Thanks for the input, I just checked the CAD, and strangely enough the base weight (with just 2 halves of the yoyo, no response, SE, bearing, anything) is 60-62, but with the bearing and the response the yoyo itself would be made heavier (including bearing and response (if 7075 Aluminum) probably around 64-65 grams) if 6061 aluminum then it would be around 62-63 grams).

The curves on this model…dear heaven…pretty sweet.


#7

@ wildcat, I found the CAD Designs with the one you liked, ill be editing the response/bearing seat area soon, and possibly changing the width a bit, so ill have that up soon.


#8

I really need input, I just want to know what you like/dont like about it, it would help a ton.


#9

. I’d buy it. good shape


#10

Cool!, Im glad you like, i worked really hard on it, anything you don’t like?


#11

Very interesting design.


#12

What has me iffy is the response area. I feel like it needs more material, especially going up in the wall.


#13

Well, i have had the design looked at by Kyo, so i believe that there is enough, but ill ask him.
