Step yo #tryingthingsout


#1

Hi all just posting for feedback.
just a project i used to try out a new vendor, (I design lighting and furniture for a living.)

Drawing inspiration from the step pyramid of Djoser the step return top is a work in progress for myself as a designer and yoyo player. The step pyramid was essentially a work in progress, that eventually lead to “true pyramids”. The Step yoyo is under weight, has a mild vibration, and the string will occasionally get caught on the steps. That being said I have always wanted to break away from the traditional O,V, and H, profiles and try something new that may or may not be a failure.

This is super cool for the record :wink:

The only risk of string eating / cutting is that first step after the response pads. The rest should be effectively cosmetic.

It definitely looks cool but I fear that the string getting caught on those tiers would happen more than occasionally. I remember people saying the line in the catch area of the SPYY/CLYW Galactic Goose would catch the string and that was much less pronounced. Would be interesting to try and see though.

That thing looks awesome. Seems like it might bring the hurt during play tho.

Thanks for the positive feedback!

it hasn’t chewed up any strings yet, only problem i have found is that sometimes the string can catch a step.
i have been playing with and trying to see if i can incorporate it into a trick, but, I am not that good of a player.

thanks again,

You can try landing on a step then doing elevator with it. Seems like a lot of neat string grind options to try!
