Triple Zero “54SE” - A new experimental variant of the Triple Zero BTM in a smaller 54mm diameter. I submitted the designs for prototype almost a year ago in 2021. It’s been a long work in progress. A huge focus on quality improvements and play feel was applied to this yoyo.
It was lined up to be released in May so I wanted to think of creative ways to incorporate the Side Effect system in other aspects of yoyoing. Two different counterweights were developed to have weight adjustability based on what side effect you use. For the white orb, the ability to sandwich the string gives it a very minimal “vanishing string” look. The titanium button is more of a display piece but can also be weight adjusted based on what Side Effect you install correctly. 5A May is of course long gone as production delays set in haha - as expected.
I reached out to Taka of Spingear in regards to running his famous “Taka gold bearings”. For those who do not know, there was a point in time where these famous bearings were sold on Yoyoguy. Back in 2006, these were one of the legendary bearings that us collectors wanted to use due to its unique smooth and unresponsive play character. The NSK bearing you see is his answer to modern demands of unresponsive yoyoing, and carries that same lineage as the original including the gold color, keeping the theme of this triple zero variant.
Limited units in Raw Titanium with numbered certificates.
