Synergy


#1

I saw a demo on yutube of the yoyojam Synergy, the end said coming soon. It still hasn’t come whats the deal?


#2

They were realesed at worlds, but they didn’t serve actual yoyo play. YYJ is working on a better version.


#3

Yeah. YoYoGuy has them on his website, but YYJ said they are fixing flaws in it because of the rims and the yoyo is a problem. :wink:


#4

Basically they haven’t worked out all the kinks. I have asked André and he said it was also for other resins which he didn’t tell me. Later.

Keep it spinning™


#5

I hope they make some. That would be so awesome to have, but I bet that with having such big bearings it might be kind of easy to squeeze them a little too hard and slow them down but I’m sure they thought of that and many other problems. Hope it comes here =)


#6

Yeah but those were the prototypes i want the acual synergy lol


#7

How is it made right now? I was thinking of making the rim hollow-ish, putting balls there, and covering it, like a giant bearing.


#8

Thats basically it. Its like there is a huge bearing, that is the size of the rim of the yoyo, and the plastic rim thing is on that huge bearing.


#9

The problems are…


#10

Probably some problems that any yoyo has before going into production, whether it be a slight design flaw (example: somebody was making a yoyo with flat rims and spikes, but there was some scientific harmonics or something going on and so it had a huge vibe. not a common problem but the same idea) or just a machining error or something.
Correct me if I’m wrong, anybody.


#11

It doesn’t sleep well, because of the bearing weighing it down. I think they are trying to improve the bearing.

And it feels weird, the yoyo is just floating there, as if its not spinning.

I think there are balance problems too.
