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.

A little while ago I reached out to Jack to see if he’d like to try the Diffraction v2, which is a tuned-up version of my little yoyo project I started last year. He liked it, so we decided to work together.
Elliot hasn’t been throwing all that long but he’s already a monster. He’s worked so hard to get to the level he has and it really shows. Give him some love!Jordan Blofeld
He’s using the OPYOYOS x MK1 YOYOS Converge. It’s a collaboration designed to blow your face off, and it does.
The Diffraction v2 is an update to the small-run original Diffraction that I released last year. We’re sold out on this site but they will be appearing on one of our favorite yoyo-themed websites soon.
