Out of the box:
When I pulled the yoyo out of the box I was first struck by the deep royal purple.
The color is so rich and vibrant… Just breathtaking. Next was the blast…
The blast is VERY smooth and very soft (cross between a soda blast and a bead blast)
The flow looks great. V shape with some very well placed cuts to give it a “modern” look.
One of the best features is the hub design Nick was able to take some weight from the bearing seat and add it to the hub so as to push the center weight out a bit more and to also add more weight to the rims. You will see that there seems to be a “double rim” This is by no means “chief” like as it helps to create an excellently placed IRG. All around the flow looks great!!
So it took me a bit if time to “dial” in the flow to my specific needs. I started off by removing the bearing and adding a KK as I felt that would be the way to go. Threw on a Fat Kitty String and went to town. It played fantastic medium speed and super super stable. It was missing something and I said “how about a 10 Ball” So I threw in a 10 Ball and changed to a Normal Kitty String and this is when it came to life!!
The stability of the yoyo is astounding!! It is as stable as any similair yoyo in the market right now
(Chief, CODE2, Mod10, Majesty and KLR to name a few) The weight placement on the flow really keeps it stableand long spinning. I could pull off all of my combos with time to spare. Now while it did spin longer and have more stability withe the KK I just fell in love with the 10 Ball. It instantly became a much more
“fun” throw for me!!!
Well I would say that it plays somewhere in between a Chief and CODE2 but with its own feeling. The Chief to me is a much faster yoyo but I do not play fast so it suites me fine. Can it play fast? Heck yea!!!
I am very happy not only that I picked one up but that Nick was able to design such a killer throw!!
His first two desings were excellent but not totally my “cup of tea” this one is!!!
Great job Nick!!!
