What do you guys think of this?
Any thoughts on the specs, something you would change.

My Goal is a yoyo that is going back to the basics of metal yoyos.
2005-2006 era.

No hubstacks, no spike, not even a crazy ano job. just a nice everyday throw.

Let me know what you guys think.

And thanks to Greame Steller for helping with design!

id but it in a heartbeat, near perfect specs for me. i think spikes would be a nice touch but like you said you want to get back to basics. i think if the weight was more around 67g or 68g (i personally would prefer the same weight as a bully (67.9g so basically 68g)) it would be more appealing. alot of it depends on how the weight is distributed.


#3

Lol, you still spell it wrong even when you try. hheheh Graeme Steller…


#4

I’m normally not a fan of the older metals, but that thing is pretty sweet.

IMO it’s a nice and elegant design. it fits most of my preferences. i would lower the weight by a little to about 67 grams. other than that Great Job!!!


#6

I love the weight and diameter. I would prefer a Size A bearing, though.


#7

A little bit wider and a small bearing would be perfect.


#8

Small bearing and 1 or 2mm wider = Win.

Josh, that’s awesome. I want one.


(Mark) #10

One word.

WIN.


#11

I would buy one. If it was wider, I’d buy it faster.


#12

Does it really need to be wider? For it’s size, I’d say the width is about perfect. If you’ve seen a yo-yo with similar specs in person, I’m sure you’d agree.


#13

perfect weight
perfect diameter
but the only down fall for me is the width
now if i was to use if for 1a it wouldnt be a problem but my main style is 5a making it a little harder to catch into the gap
but since there is nothing fancy im guessing its gonna be pretty cheap so…
I WOULD DEFINETALLY BUY 1-2-3

MAKE em SOON JOSH


#14

That really doesn’t have anything to do with the yoyo’s width, just the gap width.


#15

well ok i meant that it was easier overall to catch a string in a wide yoyo rather than a thiner one


#16

for those asking for more width, the width is pretty typical for most yoyos, i think 40-41… width is perfect, all i would do was add SHARP spikes ;D and lower the weight to 68g, even if you dont change it its a winner in my book. do you have any plans on making any protos Josh?


#17

Hehe, we’re getting lots of feedback josh. :slight_smile:


#18

just keep it raw and sell it for cheap=)


#19

Bump


#20

i would have to agree with keeping it raw, i love the look of raw yoyos
