This was an experimental yoyo I made last week.
It’s 59g, but oddly, plays lighter than that.
The holes give it a certain float or hang time, and it’s not imagined, it’s real.
The holes don’t seem to really catch the string or mess up play as far as I can tell.
The only thing that I can tell that suffers from the holes is spin time. It’s not terrible, but significantly less than it would have been without the holes.
It’s an interesting experiment. One that I may explore and refine further.

Note: shipping to the US seems to be speeding up for most packages I’ve sent recently; about a month.
