Sturm Panzer - SY-002 Leo Sniper MK-II 7068 Ver.
The best-selling Leo Sniper gets a power-up to 7068 aluminum!
The Leo Sniper showed the world the value of the powerful size D bearing, and now along with some tweaks to the profile, the body material has been upgraded to 7068 aluminum. With these changes, the new Leo Sniper is poised to make an even bigger splash than the original.
Our best-selling Leo Sniper is getting a renewal! Up until now, the Leo Sniper series has used 7075 aluminum, but now we're switching to 7068 for greater strength and durability, which has let us tweak the body shape even more. The switch also means the weight has dropped under 60 grams for an ultra lightweight throw, but the size D bearing means that power is still unmatched at this weight class.
The tweaks that have come thanks to the new material are mostly a shaving down of unnecessary material, as 7068 aluminum allows us to make our side walls even thinner without sacrificing durability. We've also switched to the bearing lock that has become our standard since the D-Starter, dropping the pad groove a whole 0.1mm, and having a small but tangible effect on playfeel.
Also, we've moved away from our handmade process, and begun using a facility that specializes in making yo-yos, so our designs are more precisely realized, creating a much more stable, perfect throw for you.
Set includes: Sturm Panzer Storybook 2-3 (A5, 46 pages, Japanese), the Leo Sniper MK-II 7068 Ver. yo-yo, polishing cloth for the brass rim, Sticker and Pad x2.
Maker Comment:Please don't remove the stickers from the side face, it will not improve performance. Bearings are the CP-06 Dry 9-ball bearing. For greater performance, you can switch the bearing out for Dif-e-Yo's Konkave bearings, but please take care, all modifications are made at your own risk.
The Axle used is a stainless steel M4x8mm, and are locked in place with a light bonding agent. They can be removed, but you assume responsibility for these modifications, and we don't recommend messing with it. All yo-yos have been tested by the maker and deemed to meet their standards for vibes, and play to their desired performance. Some marks or smudges on the body might have been picked up during manufacture or shipping, but do not affect play. Thank you for your understanding.
