Hey everyone, I’m Ken from Hong Kong. I have started a project called Shuriken Yoyos earlier this year!
After months of effort, I finally received the prototypes for my first design, JUJI.
Gap Width: 4.6mm
Material: 7068 aluminium
Design & Performance
Before I started working on JUJI, I always wanted a big & light yoyo with very wide rims. Wide rims usually come with a narrow catch zone which isn’t ideal for most modern tricks. The easiest way to overcome this major drawback is to make the overall width even wider! JUJI’s wide rims can disperse the impact force efficiently when it returns to your hand and it’s easy to catch during your tricks because of the decently wide catch zone.
JUJI is pretty light weighing in at 61.75g. Taking advantage of 7068 aluminium’ density, the thickness of the wall is around 1 mm, and the rest of the weight goes to the rims. The rim weight and the relatively large diameter (58.98mm) give JUJI some extra power and stability at such a light weight.
I would say JUJI feels light but it is stable and powerful enough for you to throw most tricks on it. I love this design and I’m definitely biased lol so I will be sending the prototypes to several reviewers, hopefully you can know more about JUJI with those reviews.
There will be 3 colorways for this run, please let me know your preference! I’ll go for Clear and the top 2 colors from the poll below.
- Teal - 325C
- Green - 357C
- Red - 201C
- Orange - 165C
- Blue - 288C
- Purple - 267C
I’ll keep you updated here for the production run, but you may also follow Shurikenyoyos Instagram page if you are interested in JUJI!
