Box 76 Tier 3 December 2022

This month’s throw is from THESIS. Aventus is the next model in the Invictus series. It’s designed to be a more powerful version of the Invictus, but still maintain its clean aesthetic and maneuverability. Thesis listened to the feedback from the Invictus and adjusted the gap width for tighter binds. Additionally, they utilized large stainless steel weight rings to increase power and stability, but still maintained the agility the Invictus held by gradually increasing the wall thickness from the hub to the rings. You are getting 1 of 3 colorways so keep an eye for which! Thesis gave us a hat and we added 100 strings to round the box value out.

This month’s box value is  $133.00

This month’s throw is from Duncan.

The original Origami was a great hit: our team loved it, our
customers loved it. But we weren’t satisfied; we thought we
could make it even better. So we went back to the original
design, and out came the all-new, revised Origami! To improve
upon the original design, we better optimized the weight
distribution to improve stability and spin time. We also
increased the length of the axle to make the design more
durable. The signature yo-yo of 5A player and superstar Bryan
Jardin, 7-time National Champion and 2-time Asia Champion,
the new Origami is made to perform.

Box 68 Tier 1 April 2022

The idea of transforming the Butterfly into aluminum is a pretty bold concept. The original Butterfly design is really something you don’t want to mess around with. After a lot of thought, we finally decided to design something aimed towards modern responsive yo-yoing; maintaining the feel of the original Butterfly but gearing the yo-yo towards a trickset that wasn?t invented at the time of the original Butterfly?s release. Our goal became to keep that timeless Duncan feeling, to make the yo-yo play responsively without sacrificing performance, and, of course, to keep the look of the Butterfly AL as close to that of the original Butterfly as possible. This Yo-Yo is responsive. Default bearing is size c. For narrower gap, use half spec bearing size c.

Butterfly AL Specifications:
Diameter:52.05 mm / 2.05 inches
Width:32.23 mm / 1.27 inches
Gap Width:4.02 mm / 0.16 inches
Weight:62.04 grams
Bearing Size:Size C (.250 x .500 x .187)
Response:19mm Slim Pad Size
