Max sent us another yoyo tutorial, featuring a double suicide element. He is throwing the Mk1 Exia.
The Exia was designed to be light-weight yet uncompromising, with an efficient and aggressive weighting that still feels natural to hold and throw. The aesthetics, engraving, and name were inspired by Gundam, a universe filled with great media and its own amazing hobbies.
Much of the design inspiration came from Mk1 team member Max. Give him a follow and check out his cool style.
Max Choo throwing the Mk1 Exia with that special blend of tech and string motion. The Exia will arrive worldwide in November.
When I started designing yoyos it wasn’t clear where it would take me. There was almost a year between my first tiny batch of Diffractions and the first bigger run of 60. I always enjoyed talking to the handful of other designers I knew, and one of my dreams at the time was to collaborate with one of them to make something special. The Converge with @opyoyos is the product of such a collaboration.
Now I want to know what your yoyo dreams are. For this contest, use the template in this post and draw a unique yoyo with something special to make it stand out. Then, post it and tag #mk1designcontest and @mk1yoyos.
Max throwing some triangles, a tower, and a raw Diffraction 2.
The Converge is our new bimetal yoyo collab with OPYOYOS. Dropping Friday, July 24th, at 10AM here at mk1yoyos.com. Converges will cost $140, or $110 for b-grades.
