C3yoyodesign - Astraea
Feel the power of a "tall" bimetal throw! The Astraea will help you step up your long combo game.
This yo-yo takes full advantage of the power of bimetal design, and hands you a giant power-up! The Astraea is also the signature model of the 2015 and 2018 Women's world champ, Hobbit Wen.
Its weight is 66 grams, its diameter is 56mm, and only 43mm wide, but still pretty average specs, which is why the Astraea blows us away when we throw it. The core of its design is "power," "sleep," and "stability," with a touch of "less tiring for the arms" and "easy soft catches." The Astraea manages to gather up all these requirements and mix them into a beautiful throw that surpasses all your expectations, and gives you extreme control over it. The amount of control goes beyond its specs, but it still has a hefty presence.
In particular, the sense of stability you get from the "tall" body is really something, and makes the Astraea fantastic for horizontal tricks and long combos that demand a long sleep. You'll find at the end of your longest string of tricks, the Astraea will have spin left to spare.
