Edit for clarification: so Ben remarked below that the Superstar and SuperNova was designed apart from the Genesis but that the Catalyst, Super G and Rockstar were definitely cut from the Genesis’ cloth, so I replaced the Superstar with the Rockstar here and dropped the Nova.
Also the G5 and GM2s came before the Genesis obviously.
@yyfben2 made a comment somewhat recently that at one point everyone on the team just wanted a Genesis as their signature and that this just wasn’t realistic from a business perspective.
Here’s the apparent result of that:
Grind Mutant 2 (I think)
Grind Machine 2 (I think)
Aviator and Aviator 2
There are definitely others too but you get the idea. Genesis is definitely one of the most influential yo-yo designs ever.
