Nah… I don’t buy that, Nathan🤓
First of all; two limited releases only actually indicate what ‘they’ were sold for.
They may have little to do with actually could be done ‘at a price’.
Your response failed to recognize that the OP also mentioned $300 as part of the ‘range’.
…Also consider that a Ti-steel Yoyo does not have to be as complex as the Fulvia BTM-R design(taking months and 9 prototypes before finalizing).
One of the hardest parts of a Ti Yoyo construction is the actual difficulty of machining the Titanium. But other than that; a simpler design ending in a bi-metal construction, could be achieved for around the $300 price point.
Nobody ever said that that price point could not be approached without a radical design.
It could be as simple as an Anglam type of design. <> A Ti body cut for pressed in rings like an Anglam or Turning Point Leviathan 6.
At least a few solid Ti yoyos could be recalculated for steel rings without encountering any insurmountable difficulties.
…The people that make the Vosum Time could make a Ti-metal Yoyo for $300. I don’t even know them. But it is self evident just by seeing what they did with the Time; that they have the expertise to do one for $300.
I think the simple mistake made by the Doubters that a Ti-steel Yoyo could not be made for $300 because judgement was/is clouded by assuming the design has to be ‘very expensive and complicated’.
…As I already mentioned; think of an Anglam type shape with readjustments; could be press-fitted with steel rings.
Sorry in advance if this reality upsets anybody with alternate views.
But it is very possible… A Ti+steel Yoyo for $300.
