Qi is energy in the very broadest sense possible.
Qi is universal.
Qi embraces all manifestations of energy, from the most material aspects of energy to the most immaterial aspects.
Qi needs to have a balance in order to maintain good flow. If there is an imbalance of qi, energy cannot flow properly.
We started our journey with a remarkable H-shape yoyo because of the amazing properties and performance capabilities this shape can bring when in motion. This time, we wanted to bring another H-shape yoyo into our portfolio with a different style and design.
Diam: 54 mm
Width: 46.5 mm
Gap: 4.5 mm
Weight: 62.1 gr
The Qi contains the typical characteristics of an H-shape yoyo where weight is pushed to the sides and comfortability comes very natural to the hand. For such reasons, we just wanted to enhance such characteristics and have a good weight (energy) distribution.
Let’s begin with the size of the diameter. The Qi could be ambiguously considered either a regular sized or an undersized throw depending on how the players considers it. For us, the Qi is in the maximum limits of what is considered to be an undersized throw, but not in terms of performance.
The Qi plays very powerfully and nimble by properly utilizing the 62 gr. body weight along the thick rims that drive great performance. The centre of gravity of this throw is closer to the rims than the rest of the monometal throws we have designed.
Such factor allows the Qi to compensate the performance factor that a yoyo with a bigger diameter could provide. In a side-by-side comparisson with our Winglet, the Qi is 3 mm smaller in diameter, 2 mm wider and ~3 gr less in weight. The H-shape, altough is more conservative than the Winglet as it can be observed, it has been stylized with several subtle cuts that adds great personality to this throw. The catch zone of the Qi is wide enough to land tricks very easily.
The way the Qi has been machined is absolutely gorgeous. It has a very nice finish and smoothness that your hand will be happy to experience. The cup also has some cuts to aesthetically match the design of the rest of throw. It is also noticeable how we minimized the centre weight and left certain room for finger spinning. Thumb grinding will definitely not be an issue.
The Qi comes in four different colourways that will be posted in the next days prior the release at the end of the month.
The engine and responsive system the Qi comes with are a concave C bearing and pads exclusively formulated for us in order to have a great spinning time and a nice grip. The Qi comes with Alpha line - ZipLine string.
We made this project with the intention to have a performer, handsome and comfortable throw that makes the energy to flow harmoniously.
Wish you a nice Qi entry flow and let nothing hold you down.
